Happy Birthday Cards and a WINNER

Wednesday, January 19, 2011
I warned you earlier that I had been thinking of doing a couple of "theme" days where I stick to a common topic on that day- (i.e. Mondays are going to be "Mom"-days).
The other theme day I thought I would do is "Theme"-day Thursdays. Each month I will choose a theme and each Thursday's post will be centered around that theme. This will be a crafty theme (don't worry- I'm not going to wax profound EVERY day over here!).
So even though January is almost over- I've decided that the theme for January will be Birthdays! One of my goals for this year is to do a better job of remembering and CELEBRATING the birthdays of the important people in my life- from friends to family. So, to get started I thought I would make a bunch of birthday cards that I could have on hand and hopefully get into the mail on time.

I love the bright colors of this polka-dot paper, so I had a BUNCH of it on hand and wanted to use it up.

The shapes were cut with my Cricut and were too small for the original project I was going to use them for- but I had a TON of them- so I decided to use them up.

These cards I made using my 3" scallop punch (I LOVE that thing!)

I was trying to use up scraps and things I already had, and made quite a dent- I think I made about 30 cards so far.

Now, for the Winner of the Banner from last week: Number 15- Mandy! I've already been in touch with her and the banner will be in the mail soon! For those of you who didn't win- don't worry- a tutorial is on the way and will be the post for next week's "Theme"-day Thursday! (and if you don't want to make one- I'll also be making some available for purchase!)
Thanks for coming by!
