Birthdays seem to be happening all around me and it's hard to keep up!! Happy Birthday to all my SBS sisters that have been celebrating since our forum began!! I dreamt of getting cards out to everyone, but life always seemed to interrupt so this card goes out to all of you!! Enjoy a wonderful new year of living the Life Amazing!
Knowing the SBS9 sisters are a part of my stamping family makes me think of all of the family I have around me...my biological family, my hubby's family, my church family, my work family, my community family and my stamping family. And you know what? It's all good! I thank God for my family and all that they are! What a blessing to have those in your life that always stick up and look out for you! Be blessed by them today!
This next card is the one I made for my son's 22nd birthday which was actually last weekend. We shared the purchase of a Wii for his big day with his girlfriend. I was able to stamp him up a card just this week, but I know he'll appreciate it anyhow! He's not a big forest guy, but my manly stamping images are limited. He was a Bear in cubscouts when he was little!! :) I used the CHF backgrounder pine needles and a Northwoods stamp I purchased from them awhile back. The sentiment is from Gina K's free set you can earn on her site. I made the woodgrain panel myself with chocolate chip ink and white craft ink. I think I learned that on a Gina K tutorial years ago. Oh! I also colored the birch trees with a white gel pen :) What do you think?
My last card for this post is for my MIL (mother in law ;). She has had surgery and is still in the hospital. I wanted something springy and although it's hard to tell, the SU cardstock colors are gable green, lilac and glorious green. The stamp set is a Stampendous window box set, although the little butterflies are from SU's basket of fun set. Looking at it now, I think I should have added a prima flower or a decorative brad....hmmmmm. ...perhaps I'll CASE myself!
Tomorrow I want to post my friendship card challenge and perhaps a few more surprises?? Who knows what God has in store for me!!
Be well and blessed all!!
