Let’s Catch Up!


2013 Birthday Class-5

First up today is the fifth and final card for my Birthday Card Class held on the weekend.  It was scheduled to post Friday morning but I had an unexpected visitor come by and my to-do list flew out the window. 

This visitor is pretty bald, perfectly chubby and has a smile that melts my heart.

9 weeks old

Little Camden is 10 weeks old this week.  It’s kind of dangerous to have a grandchild in the same city as me, not to mention, one that lives only 5 minutes away.  My to-do list has no authority when Camden is around.  I just can’t take my eyes off of him!

So now that Friday’s post is finally up, let’s get on to today’s card:

By the Tide set sampler-4

This gorgeous “hunk” of a card has really served me well this month.  I’m not one to pump out masculine cards on a regular basis, so I got as many uses out of this design as I could!  One of my hostesses chose the By the Tide stamp set as her stamp club set choice and everyone loved it so much, I chose it as a last minute, unexpected entry into my Birthday Card Class on the weekend as well where it was equally adored.

Supplies used:

Stamps- By the Tide, Perfectly Penned

Ink & Paper – Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Early Espresso

Accessories – baker’s twine, Pop Tops, Crystal Effects, 1 3/8″ square punch, sponges


Camden is coming over today again – I promise I’ll try to stay on track! 🙂 TTFN!
