A Birthday Card for my Grandpa...


My Grandpa turned 81 on the 17th of September. He has raised horses all his life, so I thought this image would be perfect. It is from Create with TLC. I colored it with my Bic Mark It Markers. The buttons are from my stash and all of the cardstock is the Paper Studio.

A Humorous Birthday Card...


Here is a card that I made for my Mom. I just love this image and sentiment, I think it is just too funny!! My Mom did a double take and had to read it again, but she did think it was funny.






For this card I used the image and sentiment from Just Inklined and colored it with my Bic Mark It Markers. The sentiment on the inside is mine. I can't remember the paper line, but I will look and then come back and post. =0)

Birthday Card for my Son...


This Sunday, the 11th of September is a very special day. Not only will it mark the 1oth Anniversary of the devastating tragedy of 9/11/01 but it is also my son's 9th Birthday. He is so in awe of his Dad and swears that he will be joining the Army when he is of legal age. lol So, on Friday I will be taking Army men cupcakes to school and he is planning on dressing the part by wearing his Army camo. It is no surprise that he asked for an Army Birthday card, so this is what I came up with...I can't wait to see his reaction!






For this card I used K & Co. Army Paper. All the sentiments were printed using a stencil font. I inked the edges with CTMH Cocoa ink and the image is Daniel, God Bless America from Fresh Brewed Designs.

An Anniversary Card...


So tomorrow, September 4th my husband and I will celebrate 13 years of marriage. Wow, it is hard to believe that 13 years can go by that quickly. It's crazy!! I'm not sure what we'll do, maybe go out to eat or something. But I did get this card made for him.






For this card, all the papers and cardstock came from CTMH. The buttons are from Hobby Lobby and the ribbon was in my stash. I colored the image with my Bic Mark It markers, with the exception of the skin which I used chalk. The main image is from Inger Harding called My Valentine and you can find it here. The Happy Anniversary circle on the front is from
LinkSentiments 4 You and the word art on the inside is from Create with TLC.
