Happy Birthday Maile! - 1st Birthday card of 2016


Hope you all had a nice New Year's Day.  Every year on New Year's Day we go to my friend's house to celebrate and for the past 11 of those years it has been a double celebration with a birthday party and New Years celebration all rolled in to one.  I spent the morning working on this card for my friend's niece's birthday...

It's still got a little bit of the holiday flair going on, but with a touch of birthday fun.  I used the adorable image from TGF's Secret Santa set as the focal point.  I also broke open my Recollections Craft It Vintage Glam paper pads for this one.  Might as well use something new for this card.  I like this paper pad, lots of glam and glitter and it has lots of craft paper designs.  Also used here are some go to MFT dies, Blueprints 20 & Stitched mini scallops oval.  From Mama Elephant the two sentiments dies.  The gems and flower are both from Recollections.

I took this with me to the party for the birthday girl.  With friends, relatives and my parents, I spent another wonderful day celebrating not only the new year, but my friend's sweet niece's birthday.  Another wonderful surprise was to see one of my former basketball players there with her little family.  Her husband coaches my friend's niece in basketball!  Small world!  It was another blessing to see her there and to know she's doing so well.

Now that the Christmas season has passed, I'll be sharing the other cards & projects I made which include lots of birthday cards.  It should be fun trying to remember all the products I used, so if I can't remember please don't hold it against me.  hahaha!  Cheers to day 2 of 2016.  Thanks for stopping by!

Yes! The vintage colors are just right. This card would work for a birthday girl of any age. Glad to hear that your year is starting off so well. Happy 2016!
