Happy Birthday, Dear Finley!!

Posted on

Hello, Friends!

I’m continuing the BIRTHDAY theme today by sharing a couple of things I made for my grandson’s fourth birthday!  It can’t be possible that he is already 4 years old, but those thoughts can be saved for another time.  Let’s get on with the crafting!

My very creative daughter-in-law planned a fishing themed party and I offered to make the invitations.  She found an image from Pinterest that I used as my inspiration, but unfortunately I don’t know who to credit for the original idea.  They were a little labor intensive, but turned out awfully cute, I think!

I then made a cute fishing themed card my grandson.  I designed the card in Design Space using several cartridges including Teddy Bear Parade, Outdoor Man and A Child’s Year.  The sentiment on the inside says, “You are the Catch of the Day”!

I’m so glad I could help with the birthday celebrations, but a little sad that I couldn’t be there in person.  I think I may need to schedule a trip to sunny Florida very soon!!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!   Laurie


Birthday Card for a Boy

Posted on

Hello, Friends!

I recently made this cute card for a young boy who likes to go fishing.  The little boy is from the Cricut cartridge Playtime and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from Paper Lace 2.

The sentiment on the inside is from the Outdoor Man cartridge.  I love being able to use lots of different cartridges when I design a project and Design Space makes it so simple!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Something wonderful is about to happen!   Laurie


Celebrating a Birthday!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

Last week my dad turned 80 years old–crazy, right?!!  My dad is a huge fisherman–almost to the point of being obsessed if you get right down to it.  He is also an expert fish fry chef and our whole family has been blessed with many a wonderful fish dinner over the years!  So of course, his birthday card had to have a “fishing” theme!

I used some paper from the Authentique Suave collection for the background along with cardstock from Close To My Heart.  The fish cut is from the Wild Card 2 Cricut cartridge and the sentiment inside is from Outdoor Man.

And now for a picture of the birthday boy–Happy 80th Birthday, Dad!  Wishing you many more successful fishing adventures this year!
