Birthday Season

This begins the family and friends Birthday season. Between September and January I have about 15 birthdays that call for hand crafted cards. Having finished the "manly" cards, now I'm creating the "girly" ones. Each with their own personalities.
The pattern papers on this card are so old we can probably get away with calling them vintage. The print is Anna Griffin and the stripe I believe is Melissa Frances. The papers and the image have been distress with Tim Holtz "Old Paper" distress ink. Old buttons were sewn onto the May Arts ribbon. I'm trying to get a good back stock of card. Because before you know it, life as we know it will come to a screeching halt and we will be making Christmas cards!

I found your blog by hitting the "Next Blog" button at the top of my page. I never knew where it would take me.

Your cards are beautiful.

Just popped over form "heart in hand" Becky's blog and lucky Bday friends to get a hand made card. I just bought to big bulletin boards from Ballard Design it has been so fun to put my hand made paper art gifts from friends on these big boards and look at them on display.

Your vintage cards are outstanding. I cant wait to get back into paper crafting but my muse has other ideas at the moment! Thanks for your continued support :-)
