Boy's Birthday

Last weekend the family finished up with our March birthdays with a party for two of my younger cousins.  They are much younger than me so, closer to my son's age, so I had to figure out what style of card to make.  Male cards are my least favorite to begin with as I can't add any bling, boohoo.  I have improved on my male cards since I started this journey, so I take heart in that.

The first card uses the Phindy's Place image, Little Squirt.  Sadly, this wonderful digital stamp store is closed but I just loved this adorable image and thought it was perfect for my younger cousin.

I colored this cutie with my copic markers and used a Martha Stewart Punch for the Happy Birthday border.  A simple Spellbinder's oval die for the background and a few Bella's Baubles for some extra embellishment.  I just needed to add that little extra to give the card a little personality.

The other card, for my slightly older cousin who likes sports, is Joey from Saturated Canary.  

Joey is colored in bright colors because every time I see my cousin he is wearing a bright fluorescent color.  Another oval Spellbinder's die and the Martha Stewart Happy Birthday punch for this card.  Of course I added a few Bella's Baubles here as well.  A little "Male Bling"  you might say.

Well, that's it for me today.  Two more days of spring break and then back to work for me.  We used too many snow days so we have to go to school on Friday, what should be the last official day of break.  It's been cold and damp this break anyway, so I won't be missing the warm weather.

Enjoy your Wednesday!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
