Embossed birthday - C4G #212

It's time for another challenge at Cardz 4 Galz!  I've got a fun birthday card to share for this challenge and our theme of "embossing - wet or dry."  If you have followed me for any time at all, you probably know that my all-time favorite technique is dry embossing, so that's what I did for my background.  I actually heat embossed my sentiment, so I technically did both types. :)  Here's my card...


I embossed the card front with Sizzix Cloudy Day.  The hills are Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes.  I created the sunflowers with TH Small Tattered Flowers.  (Not sure what I used for the center.)  The fence is Poppystamps Pointy Picket Double Gate (only used half), and I stamped it with Honey Bee Stamps Barn Wood Background for texture.  My sentiment is Sweet n Sassy Stamps Pennant Party. 

Please come play along with us at Cardz 4 Galz!

Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!

Happy birthday - TMS #732

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Today, I'm sharing my hubby's birthday card.  Shhh!  His birthday isn't until Friday. ;) 


It's technically not for his birthday, but my hubby (and me, too) is getting a new car this week.  Last week, our daughter who is a teacher, was on her way to school.  She was driving our car for a couple of reasons.  At 6:30, it's still dark around here, and a big buck jumped out of the ditch in front of her. We're soooooo thankful she was in our car which is much larger than what she normally would have been driving, so she was not hurt, PTL!!  But... the car was totaled. :/  We did find a car just yesterday, so we're happy. :) 

The frame  is Spellbinders Postage Stamps.  My paper is We R Memory Keepers Sunsplashed.  The car is from The Project Bin Classic Man.  The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is Sweet n Sassy Stamps Script Sentiments. 

Here's our fun sketch...
