Birthday Cards

Birthday Cards that I have made, just to keep my sanity and help me relax after watching over 4 kids.

This card is a 5.5 x 4.25.  The DP I used is from We R Memories, the ribbon is from Michaels, the punch is from Stampin Up that I got for free from last years Sale-a-bration and the stamp set is from Papertrey Ink.  The image is colored with copics.

This card is also a 5.5 x 4.25 size.  The dp is from dcwv, ribbon is from Michaels that I stamped with Papertrey Ink sentiment, the punch I used is from fiskars threading water and the image is digital from The Greeting Farm.  I colored it in with my copics and used some glitter pen on it.  The digital image actually only came with a boy called Birthday Boy Ian.  I altered it using Dressy Joyce using PSe,  isn't she the cutest.

Alexander Kai is here.........

Yes, he was born on 1/4/2011.  While it was nice to have him for my Birthday which was 1/9, it was a little bit bitter sweet for me because he is my last baby.  I got my tubes tied, too many repeat c-sections already.  But it's okay I am trying to enjoy him as much as I can, so please forgive me if I don't post that often.  I will be busy :}.  This is also my first time having my kids close together 2.5 years apart usually they are 5 years apart, so it's a bit challenging right now.

Here is a picture of him:

7lbs and 19 inches long

Here he is after 2 Weeks:

See how big his getting already!

Here is a card I made to send my adopted Aunt and Uncle:  (they are my mom's co-workers for over 20 years now)  yes that's how long I've known them so so I call them Auntie and Uncle already.  I had this ready already before I gave birth:

I used Nana's Stack for Boy, Cricut Cartridge: New Arrival, Stamp Image of Baby from The Greeting Farm, Stamp Sentiment "It's A Boy" also from The Greeting Farm and the stamp image from the bottom is from Papertrey Ink.  I just colored them with my copics.  The circle and scallop circle is Spellbinders.  Hope you guys like it.  Opps, Border punch I used is from Stampin Up!  

Other than that I didn't send any baby announcements this time around, I figured everyone I know pretty much has facebook anyway :}

1st Try

I saw this at the Sweet Pea Stamps blog and wanted to try it out.  I thought it came out pretty good.  I really like it.  Let me know what you guys think.  I colored the image with Copics and some of Sakura's Glitter Pens.

The image is called Ching-Chou Kuik's Carnation of May.  I love coloring her images.  It is just so detailed.  I really do need to start writing down though what colors I use.  Unfortunately it's really hard because all my pens are on the table and I could never decide what colors to use before hand.  I am more like what ever comes to mind kinda coloring.
