Dog gone cute birthday

My father-in-law has a little brown dog similar to ours (they are actually related to each other). I wanted to incorporate the pup into his birthday card. I used the party hat from the No Bones about It set which gives a great touch to the turtle.

Happy Birthday: Tools

My husband reminded me that his uncle’s birthday is coming up so today I decided to work in his card. Since retiring, his uncle has started taking up woodworking and we actually got to see a piece he made at Christmas. I figured the Nailed It stamp set would be perfect for his card. I also used the Big on Birthdays Set that I highlighted in a previous post.

Beachy Birthday

In just a few weeks, we are heading to Maui, Hawaii for our honeymoon. My husband asked for a birthday card for a colleague who has traveled to Maui many times and gave us a book highlighting places we should visit. I wanted to come up with a birthday card that felt like the beach; the By the Shore DSP and Mixed Drinks stamp set helped me achieve that with this card.

Big on Birthdays Set

One of my favorite sets in the 2017 Occasions Catalog is Big on Birthdays. I hope you enjoy some of the cards I’ve made with this set. In my last blog post, I used parts of this set to create a Thinking of You card.

Here are the stamps that are part of the Big on Birthdays set followed by some of the cards I’ve designed with them:
