Babies and Birthdays

My daughter asked me to make a baby girl card for a co-worker who just had a baby girl. This baby dress is a template that I have used before from Pinterest and I love using lace for it. The paper collection is Echo Park and so are the stickers from the collection. The baby's name is Eloise which you just don't hear anymore. Loved making this card!
Hello Eloise Jean!
Here is another Grace's Garden Stampin up Birthday card. I have made a few because I love this stamp set and I know so many people who love their gardens. This one is a tent card. Here are a few more pictures of it from the side and back.
Thanks for stopping by!

Handy Man Birthday

I have made these bench cards before for a Father's Day card but this one is a birthday card for my son! Today is his birthday and he and his fiance bought a house last year and they are doing a lot of renovations. His birthday gift is a Home Depot gift card! These bench cards are fun to design and I love how it comes together. I used a lot of my tool dies and the Sizzix embossing folder for the front of the bench table. It is hard to believe my oldest is 38 years old today! Happy Birthday Eric!

Fall Birthday Cards

Making cards for friends with a theme is more fun than just using the balloons and birthday cake ideas. Our good friend was a football coach and also played football in high school. His birthday is tomorrow so it is already in the mail. I used the sponging technique for the background, Elizabeth craft's football die, and the grass (which I use all the time) is from Die-namics.
Inside sentiment, love it!
This gatefold/crossover card is for my Aunt Carol who turns 80 tomorrow. Love the sentiment "80 looks good on you". She is my Mom's youngest sister. We are hoping to take her to lunch soon especially before the snow flies.
This type of card is a different way to close the card and I'm always looking for a different style card to make. Happy Birthday Aunt Carol!
One last card is for our friends who son just had a baby boy! So this is kind of like a birthday card too but more Welcome little one! His name is Jones Maloy Hallisey! Such an adorable little guy.
I used a template that I found on Pinterest to make this card. The embellishments are stickers from Echo Park's Baby Boy collection. Thanks for checking out my cards. As you can see it has been a busy fall as well as summer!
