A Couple of Birthday Cards

I had one of those weekends where I feel like I didn't even have a weekend! Too much going on, and not enough time at home to relax! It's going to be a LONG week!


I left making my Dad's card until the very last minute, so I whipped it together very quickly. I had this great Bazzil page starter birthday sheet of cardstock stickers, and I thought this one was PERFECT for my Dad's card. It pretty much says it all. I mounted it on double sided My Mind's Eye cardstock, and I added "Dad" to the top with some alphabet stickers.


I feel bad that I didn't mention my nephew's birthday on April 3rd! He is 18 years old! He's my very first nephew, my parent's first grandchild, so needless to say, he is very special to all of us! He was born when I was still single, and I spent a lot of time with him being a crazy aunt! I made his card quickly too. Same cardstock stickers and My Mind's Eye paper. I added some American Crafts ribbon to the tag.


Here are my girls with Grandpa. He had a very nice birthday! Look at the shirt my Dad has on! My sister-in-law always buys those for him. He wears them with pride!


These are my nephews, Matt (the 18-year old!) and Mike. Aren't they handsome? They are my sister's sons. My niece, my sister's 3rd child was at a soccer game.

I hope you all have a great week! Thanks for stopping by!

Great pictures! I love your cards too - that wild asparagus paper will go down as one of my favorites. I really enjoy the lettering on the cards.
