The Other Birthday Card....

This was supposed to be two similar birthday cards that I made, only as I went to post them, I found out I already delivered one of them without taking a photo (horrors!) Oh well... This one is similar to the Mojo Monday card for my sister in the previous post, but I did not follow the design as I did for hers. Everyone that you make cards for does not understand using multiple color schemes just so you can enter a card in a challenge! lol

Here's my quote for today, courtesy of (who else, these days... but...) Pinterest!

Just a thought for the new year...

I am linking this card to:

Here's the birthday card....the lady it was for loves her cat. I loved the color of that paper!

It's a little different. Plus I'm showing you the inside on this one...

The cards below are actually the cards I made for my girlfriend whose card was similar to the one above, but I forgot to photograph it. Again I selected some of the cards from the ones below and put them in the box at the end of the post. One day I will learn to make some prettier packaging, but for now this is working out ok...I think. :)

The paper used for these cards looks much prettier in person (I know we all say that, but it's true!) It is the pearlized paper by Core-dinations. Makes the "ordinary" a little more special. :)

Don't judge me.

Thanks for your visit, ...I greatly appreciate your comments!

  14. Hi Rae,

    Happy New Year my friend!

    Love the quote... how I wish I could understand it in all it's depth. Your blog always makes me wiser when I leave it.

    And those cards are out of this world... the sentiments are touching and sweet. What a priceless gift. And hey, the packaging is wonderful. All that you create is always lovely, Rae. The black ribbon looks so posh.

    Hugs and thanks for all the meaningful stuff you share.

    Love ya lots,


  15. Hi Rae, These are simple but absolutely stunning!

  16. Who's the kitty cat card for??? Very cute!

  17. Oh, those blings are so pretty! I always like your card sets. Love the package!

    P.S. I think core destination is discontinuing the pearlized card stocks. I saw their new texture card stocks. I don't like them.
