Birthday Boy!

Fishing birthday card

Tunnel card

Under the fishing boat

September birthdays are coming so I have started making the cards because like August,  September is a big month for birthdays too.  Tanner's lives in Florida so I had to get his in the mail. He loves fishing so I thought this would be a great card for him.  "Hope all your birthday fishes come true", is the sentiment for his card.  Tunnel cards are fun to make and I haven't made this type of card for him.  I also just got these fish stamps from ebay which is a Stampin up stamp set. Happiest of birthdays Tanner!

Ocean Block cards

Folds into envelope too!

Sentiment on the back

 These types of block cards are so easy to make.  I found this type on Pinterest and I will leave the link below for the measurements and directions.  I am giving these cards to the birthday girls because I put REAL shells (from Cocoa Beach in Florida) on the front and didn't want them to break by mailing them.  But it is easy to fold them up and mail them depending on your embellishments.  Ocean Blue by Graphic 45 is so beautiful!  I have made so many projects with this collection.  Thanks for stopping by! Give this style of card a try!!

More August Birthdays


Bridge Card
Another birthday card for an August birthday!  The bridge card is a fun way to showcase the ocean.  Love using these little fishes.  The paper is from another favorite of mine, Graphic 45's Ocean Blue.

Here is the back of the bridge card with a perfect sentiment for the card.   Now that summer is winding down, the ocean theme is going to give away to autumn with falling leaves.  I hate to see summer go but I do love the fall!

Rainbow & Unicorns

This Accordion card is for a little girl who loves Unicorns and Rainbows!  She is so adorable and she loved this card.  I love looking for sayings to go with this card.  It just made me happy to make this for Julia!  Happy Birthday Julia!

August Birthdays


This is a quick post which will be mostly pictures. This was a fun card to make.  A record player is a thing of the past but vinyl is making a big comeback. Love the sentiments that go with this card.  I made them for a couple of great guys birthdays.  I also love using my music dies!
