Birthday card & tag.

Posted by Michelle on June 1st, 2011 . Filed under: Birthday, Cards, Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye, Papertrey Ink .

I have a love-hate relationship with 4-day weeks. Love them because that means I only have to work 4 days, and I got a paid day off. Hate them because I still have 5 days of work to do in 4 days!
Ah well…. Up today is a fun lil’ card I made for my mother-in-law’s birthday. I’m REALLY hoping that my husband got her age right or it’s gonna be a pretty obvious blunder *giggles* And then the lil’ taggie is just a quick & easy ditty to have on hand for those quick & go gifties.

My Mind’s Eye patterned paper and chipboard; big number dies by Papertrey Ink.


Cosmo Cricket patterned paper and embellies.

    This is totally cute and doable so many ways–it’s saved to my inspiration file for sure! You can make this same card for my next birthday–just put “29” in place of the “63,” if you would. ;->

    Ooh, the card is so pretty – I’m sure she’ll love it! And I love the tag too – love the colors & how the blue pops off the tag, the paper, lace and the embellies! Man, I hope you’re having a better week than me – work is kicking my butt, lol.
