Another Birthday Card


There are a lot birthday celebrations in our family whenever March hits the calendar. Next week it will be my sister's birthday and on the 25th, my SIL, the 26th my BIL. Plus more from my cousins and other relatives. I made the card above for my brother-in-law who lives in Venice, California. We'll be sending him the card tomorrow and hope it will reach him before his birthday. I used Card Patterns Sketch #5 for this one. I must admit, I am not too confident with this card as I am not used to creating masculine themes be it for cards or scrapbook layouts. But I gave it my best and I hope he'll like it. :)

I used All About Scrapbooking (a local brand here in the Philippines) papers and stickers which I bought last year but never got to use anymore since someone told me they were not acid free. But I'm not so sure if they really aren't acid free because I did a test with an American Crafts PH Tester pen and it turned out good after all. So I guess it's safe to use them too but I mostly use them on cards and altered projects now just to make sure.

Well it's a brand new week and I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping I'd finally get to make my first LO for March! But I'm not so sure coz Marcie just caught a cold and has been acting like a baby the whole day. She wants to be carried and boy, is she getting heavier. I'm hoping she'll feel better soon because I hate seeing her looking weak. Get well soon my little girl. Here's a kiss from mommy... Mwah!

x's... Before I forget, do check out my cards over at Card Sketch A Day where I am the guest designer for the day. :) TFL!

This is really great Gracie!
You have a keen eye on little details. I like how this turned out to be vintage-y masucline.

Lovely boy card! Well done, boy cards are always a little more tricky to make but you have it mastered! Great take on the sketch.
