Steve's 30

My adaptation !
Card from Technique junkies

Cards for Amanda
Each of my kids receives 30 cards the month of his/her birthday - so I have to get in gear since my BABY will be 30 next month.

Amy, Dee and I spent a fun afternoon making cards yesterday.

The cardinal card was one Amy found in Technique Junkies from last year, and we figured it out and created the card here.

Cards for Steve
 I made the owl one as an extra ... my daughter Amanda said she used up the cards from her 30th, so I decided a collection of birthday cards would make a nice Christmas gift for her.

The image was a free digi from here... isn't it cute!

It is amazing

It is amazing how many cards I can get made when I have a briefcase full of papers to correct! It is my best inspiration ever!

I made these for 2 reasons ... my son is having his 30th birthday next month and our family tradition is to send 30 cards for the 30 days leading up to the big day. What WAS I thinking when I started that tradition 3 kids ago I will never know, but can't let down the third one. ( as if he would notice ...)

Also my daughter mentioned that she had finally used up all of the 30 cards I sent her for her birthday 3 years ago by erasing my name and putting hers in place of it so I thought a collection of manly birthday cards would be a good Christmas gift for her. Perhaps I will throw in a few of my ladylike ones too just to round out the collection.

Karen's sketch
This sketch is one of my favorites ... it came from a card made by Karen over at Splitcoast ... link and really makes a nice quick card with pretty paper.
