I have some birthday goodies to show you, but first off, I'm going to show you a card that I made for my brother.
I struggle with masculine cards, but I think this one turned out OK. I used Basic Grey papers, and some My Mind's Eye rub ons. I always like to emphasize the fact that my brother is two years old than me, so having his age on the front was mandatory! After adhering the "44" rub ons to the ticket punched red cardstock, I distressed the cardstock a little with Tim Holtz corduroy ink. The "Happy Birthday" is a Stampin' Up stamp. I used some brads, and then I smashed them with my Tim Holtz texture hammer. The "stitching" is also MME rub ons. I guess it's not overly masculine, but I still like the way it turned out.
Here are my birthday goodies. My girls picked out TWO sets of the most adorable dog stamps. I love them both. Wow, my Princess pages are going to be styling! I also LOVED the movie Enchanted, so I was happy to receive it on DVD! I can't wait to watch it again!
I helped out with this gift a little!! I found this at Target on clearance for $3.98. It was originally $15. How could I pass that up? It was the only one there, or else I probably would have bought two more for my girls!! I've always wanted one of these craft totes! I love it! I bought it, and then gave it to my husband to give to me. I can't wait to fill up all of those pockets!
I have mentioned numerous times to my girls that I love the French Twist papers, and I didn't have any of them. So, they picked some out for me, and they got me coordinating cardstock to go with them. My girls are seriously the best shoppers ever! I will have a very hard time cutting into these papers! They're GORGEOUS!
I still won't be blog hopping too much until next week. My girls and I are off to Hobby Lobby today to take a look around, and then we need to do something FUN! It is spring break after all, even though the weather isn't cooperating! Have a great day, and thank for stopping by!
