Recipe for A Happy Birthday

Recipe for a Happy Birthday - inside.JPG

One of my regular customers needed a birthday card for her daughter. Her daughter loves to cook. So I decided to do a recipe theme. There weren’t a lot of ideals out there and mostly were for birthday invitations. So I took some bits and pieces from some cards on the internet then added my own ingredients (ideals came from the mom on how they celebrate birthdays) to make a personalized birthday card!

The “lift category” this month in the April Inspirational Card Challenge @ scrapbook.com is to lift Cardiographer!! She is one of my favorites and is a friend of mine. She loves Doodlebug (so do I…friendship at first sight!) and she ROCKS it!! I keep telling her she needs to try out for their design team! Even though I did not “lift” a card of hers I “lifted” the use of Doodlebug which doesn’t count for the challenge but I least made a cute card!! Her cards are cuter but I tried! I fussy cut the presents out of some paper. And used a die cut to make the balloons. The recipe card was from Deedee’s Digis (no longer in business but she has some freebies on her site Papercraft Romance.)

CHALLENGES:
1) April Inspirational Card Challenge – lift Category – used Doodlebug like my friend Cardiographer does!

Cow Fathers Day

So one of the girls at work needed 3 Father’s Day Cards. This dad she said like cows and was a farmer so I said I can do that! When trying to figure how to make it Father’s Day card my husband came up with the inside sentiment “Milk it for all it’s worth!” I loved the saying and so did the lady at work.

I think I might make this into a birthday card by tying balloons to it’s tail!

CHALLENGES:
1) June Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – I used Freshly Made Sketches #1. I love this sketch and have used it several times over the years.

SUPPLIES:

Cardstock: Bazzill (Raven, lava)
Patterned Paper: cow paper found on the internet. The sentiment is on a piece of the cow paper that comes with the digital stamp.

Coolest Pop

I showed her the paper from Photo Play – This Guy Line – Keep It Handsome and she said this image was perfect. I used this card by Jody Marrow as my inspiration for the design.

Chillin & Grillin

And her other dad likes to grill. I made a card for him about three years ago but this is a completely different image and feel to the card. I found Team Dad by Echo Park at my local scrapbooking store and thought it would be perfect for several cards. I ended up messing up one of the cards so I cut the grill out of it so I could pop dot it on top of the original image.

Have I told you the good news yet? Deedee’s Digis is staying open!! You can read about it here… http://www.deedeesdigis.com/2015/01/we-found-way-to-stay-open.html

Today Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge #210 – anything goes as long as it is Christmas. So if you finished a last minute project and haven’t posted it yet OR you want to get a start on next year’s Christmas cards, this is the challenge for you! This was one of the last few cards I made before Christmas arrived. One of ladies at work needed Christmas cards for her daughters and one of them loves to cook. So I paper pieced this wonderful image from Deedee’s Digis, Mix it Up.  Paper piecing it was a little tricky with the arm and bowl in front of the apron but with a little fancy cutting and my Xyron X sticker maker I was able to do it and love how it came out! And her matching bow just makes me smile.  I used a Christmas paper pack from several years ago but I thought it was perfect.

I used Sketch Saturday #330 as my inspiration.
