Birthday and a Blog Hop!

You should have come to my blog from Barb's Blog, if not, please start at the beginning at the Simply Obsessed blog and work your way through, to the end!

For over a year now I've been purchasing kits from Simply Obsessed and have loved all of them!

So, of course, I have to wish Simply Obsessed a
Happy 3rd Birthday!

Come join in on the fun during the blog hop and hang out and crop starting August 13th Friday!  Wooohoo!  If you haven't been there yet,
the girls are sweet and the gallery is awesome!  Such talent there!!!  The GAMES are also so fun, I don't know how they come up with all that great madness!!!


Okay, so I've been creating some birthday cards and will finally be able to share them with you!
This card is a masculine card, originally created for my cousin who turned 10...but I made it so stinkin' early that I forgot I already had one and ended up giving him some card I had laying around!  Sigh....
So I gotta hang on to this guy till I find a 10 year-old-to-be!  Ha ha!

These two card designs were borrowed from a card I created at a Stampin' Up! Convention way back when I was a Demonstrator!  It's so easy to make!  What's so cute about it is the pocket inside where you can tuck a gift card.  I used my Big Shot and my flower die cuts!
Easy Peasy!

And to make a masculine birthday card, I just used a stamp set with coordinating punch!
I'm planning on making a BUNCH more to give out as card kits this Christmas to friends and family!
If you start NOW, you'll have plenty of time to finish!
Just make a list of all the families you'll need to give gifts to so you know just how hard you'll have to work to make them all!!!!  One set can be for a whole family!

I hope to have inspired some die-cutting and card making!  Maye a project like this will work for one of the crop creations this weekend!!!

Okay...just a small giveaway!!  For fun!!!
I recently came back from a Hawaii trip and found some cute things I could use in my scrapping endeavors!

I will be giving away 5 "Aloha from Hawaii" playing cards (as featured in 2 of my scrappy creations below)...just so you can see what I did with them!

AND....I'll give away THIS postcard below.....

AND the two post cards on the bottom row of this photo (the surfer and the hula girl)!  Sorry, I used some of the others...he he....

Cute huh?
You can use them in your scrapping or as they were the mail!!!

Just comment on this post and become a follower (I love new bloggy buddies)!  Of course, if you do not want to be put in the running, just say so in the comments!

Muah!  Good luck and happy hopping!  Thanks soooo much for stopping by and be sure to see what fun the rest of the blog hop holds!  Again, crop starts tomorrow...Friday....August 13!

Next stop is Pam's blog!
