Fiesta Birthday

Fiesta Birthday

Had another request from a customer to make a Fiesta themed birthday card for her 5 year old granddaughter. She had sent me a photo of what she liked which had a big number and a hat on the number. So I found the perfect fiesta digital images at Mygrafico and this is what I came up with. She loved it!

1) Feb Inspirational Card Challenge @ – Bonus Category – have a number on the card.

Birthday Disguise


Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Through The Craft Room Door Challenge – Anything Goes!

I made a birthday card for my brother. I used Funny Disguises Digital Image. My best friend is a card makers dream because I give her what I’m working on and the direction and she comes up with the best sentiments. I want to send her to Hallmark but I’m afraid I will loose my sentiment resource so I keep hogging her to myself!! She came up with the inside and outside sentiment. Isn’t she awesome!!

Inside: And as your sister, I have to tell you it also won’t get you kicked out of the family. (You are stuck with us!) Happy  Birthday!

I then got to play with Mustache SVG file. There is also a digital image Mustache Mish Mash if you would rather have it as an image.  I saw the hat/heart/mustache ideal on the internet and liked it. Then I saw the saying on a different site and liked it. So I decided to combine the two into my own unique card! I used the Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch #145 as my inspiration.

Mustache - love you

I’m so excited for the Doodle Pantry 40% sale….I have made my list of “really must need” stamps and now I can get more before having to save up more of my allowance! Check out the store I’m sure you will find “really must have” stamps that you can add to your wish list for Christmas!!
