Am I the first to post a comment? Wow, that's a first for me! lol :) I'm not a big one for super traditional birthday cards, I tend to usually make something just happy or cheery looking, so this is why I love this card that Gina K (of Gina K Designs) made. I call it a "Wish for Retail Therapy on your Birthday!" How's that? lol :)

Here's the link:

I hope the link works! lol :)

Have a great day!

I just made two cards last night and they're in the envelopes already, so I will have to snap a new picture of something I make tonight :) Ilove flower cards because they're so easy to make and that's what you'll see :)

I was in the fairly early stages of my card making addiction when I made this card for a friend's 50th birthday. She lives in California and frequents the orchards, being a wine "snob." :) I did a search for wine labels from California wineries, scrunched the printout, stained it with walnut stain and used some of my grape stamps to create this for her. She loved it. I look at it now and think I would do things a little differently. You know how that is. LOL!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! A tough decision to choose between a couple of them that I REALLY like...I ended up chosing this one b/c it's easy for people to replicate (I've seen it cased!) =)
Hope you have a GREAT day!

I don't make/send many birthday cards. This card is one that I made for my two nieces this year for their birthdays. I usually give them the same card (ages 24 & 28) so there is no favoritism. lol

This is a card I made out of the Polka Dots and Paisley set- which I love and got from a dear friend in a trade. I love the birthday sentiment as well. "Life is not a matter of counting years, but making years count"
Happy Birthday and thanks for sharing your love of crafting- my blog is http://significanceinsimplethings.blogspot.com/

Here is a link to my birthday card-

This is probably the favorite one I've ever made. I just fell in love with the ribbon and wanted to make sure that it would shine.

My favorite birthday was one of those ending in a zero - A surprise dinner out with my whole family: Mother, Son, Daughter, 3 grandchildren & 3 great-grandchildren!

Sorry my scanner is not working so I can't download a photo. But I will always remember my 9TH birthday. I was on a local TV show that featured Popeye cartoons and between cartoons would come back to a Captain and group of kids. Because it was my birthday, the Captain let me be the one that made all the announcement. I enjoyed my 15 minutes of fame:) LindaSue

I usually have to share a birthday with my husband and my sister because our birthdays fall the same week. I went on a ski vacation with a close friend for one of my birthdays. This one stands out as my favorite b-day of all time!

melissa roth said...

I have a rather gory story of my 11th birthday. I thought it was really cool at the time, but I look back and it now makes me cringe. My birthday fell on the same day as my dear Aunt Rosie's funeral. So since my family already had a limo rented for the funeral, they picked me and my party-goers up in the limo and we rode all over town celebrating my birthday right after the funeral. YIKES.

I just posted a birthday card on my blog called Birthday boy. I dont personally celebrate them-never liked Birthdays at all.click my name and click Papertango.
