There were a lot of birthdays to celebrate in August, but I ran out of blogging time so I'll be sharing three of them here today.
The first one was cased from Stephanie of Clearly Besotted Stamps. I loved the cut out clouds and knew they would work with balloons as well as a kite.
All the papers and stickers came from the July Simon Says Card kit.
Since my grand-nephew was celebrating his birthday right around the time he was here visiting at Conesus Lake, a nautical card seemed in order.
The card is one I've had in my stash for years, and I can't remember who manufactured them. They came pre-embossed and I bought several pack of them.
This card is really one of the most versatile around. By changing the colors of the cardstock and candles you could create a card for almost anyone. I loved Papertrey's new birthday set, Wishes Come True, as soon as I saw it because along with the candles the sentiments are perfect for men, women, or children.
I added some glitter to the flames with my Gelly Roll Clear Star glitter pen, the quickest and cleanest way to add some glitter.
