Happy Birthday Cards....

Here today with a couple of birthday cards for some special people.  One is for my son who will turn 10 on July 10th!  The other is for my dear cousin Stacy who will turn....a.... 29.... again.  :)

Today, June 23rd, my sweet husband Stuart would have celebrated his 57th year and so I send Happy Birthday greetings to our dear "Papa Stu" up in Heaven!  We are all thinking of you today!  Tim and I will be celebrating with some cupcakes and an annual picture later today!

Here are some pictures of my cards:
 I finally did it!  I used sequins on a card!  I wanted this one to look like a birthday party!  I cannot believe my son Tim is turning 10 years old.  Double digits!  The teen years are around the corner!  Oh my!  Where does the time go!!!!

 I placed things at different angles to give it a more "happy" or "celebratory" feel....

And for my sweet cousin...a more feminine card:

 Same style of card just softer colors and some lovely Tilda papers I had in my stash along with my beloved gingham from my digital paper files.  I am linking this card up to this week's Shabby Tea Room challenge.  It is week #224 and the theme is "Party Time".  We are challenged to make a Birthday card or project using pink, green and polka dots.  I hope that the "dots" around the mat for my sentiment count for the polka dot part of the challenge?!  :) 

Thanks for taking a look my friends!  I so enjoy reading your comments and visiting your blogs to see what you are up to!  Hope you are enjoying these lovely summer days!  It is our first full week of summer break from school and I am so enjoying taking a little bit of time in the morning to craft!  Today we are off to take a walk with my sister and her newest grand baby girl!  So fun! 

Rhonda - sending big hugs to you and your entire family my dear!!!   HUGS!!!!!!

Hope to be back with another post soon!

  3. These are both fabulous. I really like the papers you used.

  4. I LOVE that you celebrate Papa Stu's birthday with cupcakes and a photo. That is such a special way to commemorate him. He is sending you both love down from Heaven.
    Both of your cards are wonderful! I can't believe Tim is going to be 10! LOVE the angles on the card!

  5. I just popped off a few lines to you and then your post appeared in the inbox! Gorgeous cards and you just know the girlie card speaks to my heart but the first one will certainly speak to Tim's!!! Ten is such a wonderfully round number and yup…hang onto your hat! Still easier with a boy though than a teenaged girl ;)) Much love, Rebecca

  6. PRETTY PRETTY PRETTY!!! Love the gingham and love the designs!

  7. Adorable, Miss Jill! Love the dual masculine and feminine takes with the same design! Thanks for sharing your lovely work with us in the Tea Room this week! PS - LOVE your blog makeover :)

  8. How wonderful to celebrate the birthday of Papa Stu with cupcakes and a photo! Both cards are so sweet! A big happy bday to Tim! And, your cousin will love the very pretty card! Happy bday to her, too!

  9. These are some great tools that i definitely use for SEO work. This is a great list to use in the future..
