One of my other favorite blogs to do challenges is the BBT2 blog where every week they have a new challenge. http://heather-bittenbythebug2.blogspot.com. This week's challenge is "BIRTHDAY CARD WITH A NUMBER". My grandson who will have a birthday January 27th will be turning 5. I made this card for him Some of us here in Kentucky will remember that day has the ICE STORM of 2009. It basically crippled western KY. But that didn't stop my grandson from being born at home.
Here is the card that I made. I will post what I used underneath the picture.
I also put the shark on an action wobble and used tiny google eyes. I think my grandson will like this card. I also have entered this in the action wobble challenge for this week. Please go and check out the site http://www.action-wobble.com and see how the action wobbles work. They are so much fun to use and will make your projects wiggle.
My niece's husband's birthday is also January 27th and I wanted to make him a card also. I saw this balloon card that Michelle (sorry can't remember what her blog name is) had made and I thought this would make a great card for him. I'm sorry that it doesn't look very good in the picture. I'm sending him the one on the left. The Happy Birthday is from the Artiste cart. I used some of my Baker's twine that I have and some buttons in my stash. I embossed the front which you can see with an Anna Griffin embossing folder called Matelassé.
The card on the left was an extra one that I had did for my stash. I used the same embossing folder on the front and used a button from my stash and baker's twine.
In this picture you can see the different cardstock that I used. I think that this makes a perfect masculine card. Thanks Michelle for the inspiration.
Hope everyone one has a great weekend and is able to get lots of crafting done.
