Here’s a colorful birthday card sent in by Lynne. I think it’s so cheery and love that Arthur bear stands out. She said that in Northern Ireland, where she is, they don’t really have beach huts, but that she’s seen them when she went on holiday.

Here’s what Lynne wrote that she did…”I’ve had this old beach hut stamp in my stash for years now, so I’ve used it here as a background image and then coloured Arthur to match.┬áColoured with watercolour pencils. Chalked clouds. Arthur popped up on dimensional.”

I know that Father’s Day has passed for this year, but I’m posting this card anyway. :) Maybe it’s early for next year?

I made this card for my dad and used one of my favorite dog stamps – Leaping Tucker. It’s just such a happy stamp for me. I actually used the mountain, tree and cloud dies from Sizzix Thinlits Snowglobe set. I cut them out and then watercolored them. I added a little black outline just to give them a bit more definition. I used some mounting tape to give some dimension. I added some wash tape and a little banner.

My dad loved the card. :) My mom even said that she had to find a bigger box because they saved all the cards I’ve made for them over the years.

Here’s a fun birthday card sent in by Alex. In this birthday “scene”, Norbert the dog is bringing balloons to the party and it looks like it must be time for dessert ’cause he’s running! After she colored everything in she used glitter spray on top of the card. I hope all the sparkles come through in the picture.

Here’s a sweet little card you could send anytime just to say “Hi”. Alex made this and once again raided her father’s train set box of goodies. Below you can see them actually standing on a bit of sand. She also finished the card using some glitter spray. I just think it’s so very sweet.
