Birthday Cards For JP

It’s my son’s birthday at the end of the month and these are two of his birthday cards.  No worries, he never even looks at my blog and I know for sure that these cards are too busy for him … but what the heck I loved making them.

Whenever I am home for JP’s birthday (which sadly isn’t often enough) I tend to make cards for the grandchildren to give to their dad and also make one for Claire to give him.  The grandkids can have this one, Alex and Amber will love it … not sure about Lauren (or JP)… she loves CAS like her DAD.  They both would prefer the card that I made here.


Entering the above for the Stampotique Designers Challenge 258 where they want to see a Favourite Quote.

Definitely love this quote as all my art starts off as complete chaos.  Did loads of freehand doodling around the edges and chose these two adorable chaps.  One is called Topher and the other Newton.  Stamped onto copy paper then cut out ready for my masks but decided that they went so well with the background that I just stuck them on as they were.

The second card will be the one that Andrew and I give him which means I have one more to make for Clare … mmmmm … maybe make Clare’s card a CAS one.

Then I have an 80th Birthday card to make for Clare’s dad.

These little guys looked better coloured in.  How adorable do those dogs look, bought them here?

Poor Mr Weasel was one of the first Stampotique stamps I ever purchased but not sure I should have cut his legs off to sit him on the wall!!!!

    My Son is just the same Shirl. He didn’t even show the slightest sign of excitement when my cards were on telly earlier in the year, so maybe it’s just boys! 😉 Your cards are very creative and I do believe that you should make the kind that you enjoy making. I love how you’ve done the wall on the second one, it looks so realistic and the dogs do look quite sweet. Crafty hugs, Sandra X
