Paper Pieced Birthday


Tonight I have a "twofer" (to quote Bert Stratton.) I needed to make a card for my husband's birthday, which is tomorrow. He seems to like my little HM's, and I got this one because I thought it would be great for putting about any message on it that you want. It's called "Chalky Consequences" and it features Maxwell. I also wanted to participate in the HM challenge for the week, which is paper piecing. So, this card will satisfy both the birthday card and the challenge. I cut out the stamped image of the mouse on the chalk rail and used dimensionals to place it on top of the same stamped image on the card. The chalkboard still looked a bit bare, so I made up a "writing chart" from what I remember them looking like back in good ol' school days. That helped and I also put it on with dimensionals. The balloon paper is from Basic Grey's "Cup Cake." The Happy Birthday was done by masking the mouse and then stamping the HB in VersaMark and embossing with white embossing powder. Be sure to check out the cards that the DT did at the HM site. They're all just too cute. Have a great Tuesday and I'll hopefully be back with more before too long.

Awww...such a fun and cheerful card. It immediately put a huge smile right on my face. In fact, as I am typing this, I am still smiling:o) You gotta love a card that brings joy to another. Your husband is going to love it! Tell him I said, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" I would sing it for him, but it would effect his hearing in a negative way;o]
