Happy birthday

Today starts a time in my life I simply hate the most. I hate getting TO this day, and not because I am turning another year older….. You simply have no idea of the crap in my mind these 2 weeks brings me. It is suppose to be a happy time, and mine… is marked by death.

Happy birthday cards

This year is the first time back home in 12 years, so it is special for me AND my family! My sister’s birthday is 10 days after mine, and this year we will be celebrating our special day’s with each other for the first time in I’m not sure HOW long! I am sure you will see pictures posted on Instagram and Facebook, so make sure you check there for all the fun times from that day! And I am even MORE sure I will be doing some fun projects with the pictures I have from this year! A special project for sure, a book from Shutterfly!

With birthday cards, you can use the same punch or die cut, just in different ways! If you notice the far left and far right cards, I used the same punch, both cards turned out different because of the papers used! You can use balloons for a lot of different designs to celebrate things, baby showers, anything congratulations… you get the idea! With the middle card, you can see I used a die cut (from Sizzix) and then a simple star punch to match the papers! You don’t need just birthday related paper for your cards! I hope you have enjoyed this little idea – make some birthday cards of your own and make sure to share them, I might just showcase YOUR project!

Thanks for stopping by,
