It's Your Birthday!

I had these great plans for today...most of which included making a TON of cards.  Ha! Apparently that only happens in my dreamworld, where life doesn't interrupt. ;-) I *DID* finally get a chance to make one card, at least.

One of my cardmaking goals this year includes using up my stashes (remember, I'm a paper hoarder).  Here's a card that uses up some of that retired paper (Good Morning Sunshine).
A bit brighter than my normal taste...but that's ok, right?

I set out to make a masculine card, but after I finished it, I realized it could work for anyone! :)

Well, what do you think?  Honestly, it's not my fave...but I had forces working against me today, so I'm just glad I was even able to create something! lol

The Small Print (All Stampin' Up)
Stamps: It's Your Birthday
Ink: Pacific Point
Paper: Good Morning Sunshine
Cardstock: Pacific Point, Old Olive, Summer Sun, Whisper White
Accessories: Star punches, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. Great, great birthday card. I will certainly be casing this one. I am always looking for cards that are appropriate for men. You are right it is appropriate for anyone but it is still great for men. TFS

  2. I really like this card, I have a whole pack of this paper I bought off the clearance rack, will definitely be breaking out soon.

    Thanks for sharing,

  3. Great card! I love the brightness of it. Thanks for blessing my day. :)

  4. It is so hard to make cards for men, but this is a great one. Thanks for visiting my blog:

  5. Great Birthday card! Brighter is a okay! lol Way to go using your stash I can't do it, I just can't! lol

  6. I make over 100 birthday cards for my Mother each year. This is a great card, thanks for sharing.

  7. I love these colors and the layout. Great card!!

  8. I'm trying to guess your measurements for the patterned paper...can you please tell me what they are?

  9. ScrappinFabBetty - I tried finding a way to contact you, but was unable. So...I'll post here and hope you come back to find it! :)

    I found the card and measured, each strip looks to be 1.5" x 3.5".

    Hope that helps! :)


Go ahead...make my day! :)
