Summer Birthday Cards

It seems like I am celebrating someone’s birthday every week this summer.   From my friend Ashley to my husband and a few friends along the way, it has been one big party.  For your friends and acquaintances who you don’t need to get a gift for, a handmade card in the mail (or given in person) is a nice touch.   Kim Moreno has a great birthday card idea for a girl this summer.   She’s used the flower from PSA Life’s A Beach and stamped using various inks and her acrylic blocks.  She’s tied a small piece of twine through a coordinating purple button.    

For the guy in your life, Kim has a solution with a “hbd dude” distressed and colorful card.   She’s stamped from Peanuts Joe Cool.   I love Snoopy against his surf board!  She’s colored the stamp up with her makers to bring him to life – a technique that we almost always recommend when stamping characters!

Who’s birthday are you celebrating this summer?  Anyone special?
