Another Happy Birthday Card - I'm on a Roll


I made this birthday card yesterday for my boyfriend's brother, David. He's like a brother to me, so even though I've been working like a mad-lady this week, I wanted to make him a card. He always comments on how great my cards and projects are, so I juuust couldnt bring myself to give him a store bought card for his birthday.

The skull is grungeboard covered in Crackle Paint, Walnut Distress Ink, and Crackle Accents. I threw in a lot of staples, one of Tim's journaling tickets, and whole lotta distressing to make it a little more manly.

He liked it. Mission Accomplished :)

Shabby Chic Birthday Card

In my spare time this week, I made this super cute (if I do say so myself) birthday card for my new boss. I added lots of hand stitching (because I am seriously lacking in the having a sewing machine department), gem stones, Enamel Accents, Tattered Rose Crackle Paint, aaand Rock Candy Distress Stickles. The butterfly base is Grunge Board.

I know 'Best Wishes' isn't the best birthday card greeting, but all of my Happy Birthday stamps were a little too...cheesy :) This was the first card that I've given to a non-family member, and actually received a sincere 'thank you' and acknowledgement that it was handmade. Best feeling evar :)

Also, on a side note...I received a huge tote full of new Tim Holtz product that will soon be out on the shelves at JoAnn - SO EXCITED!!!!
