Happy 1st Birthday, Oliver! Made using Martha Stewart Birthday Cakes cartridge.

Hello, everyone!

Today's card is made using the Martha Stewart Birthday Cake Art cartridge. It is so perfect for birthday cards! I made this one for my little English nephew. Do you think that I remembered to give it to him though while they were here last week? NO! What is wrong with me? I am like the saying about the cobbler's children having no shoes. I have drawers full of cards and constantly forget to send them out. I need help.

The paper used is Jillibean Soup.
I cut the circle out at 3 1/2" and the 'st' is cit out at 1".
The stamps are from Papertrey Ink.



Thanks so much for stopping by. Don't forget to keep checking out mine and Joy's blogs today for the 2nd Hello Thursday release of the month. We will go live with the new projects as soon as we get the go ahead. Fingers crossed it will be this morning!

Aw Cute! I am always forgetting to send cards. They are perpetually late! I borrowed the phrase from my son's Godmother..."You're birthday isn't over until you get the last card/present." :)

Aman said...

Scrapper69 said...

OMGOODNESS! This is such a CUTE card! LOVE that Jillibean Paper! And don't worry that you didn't give it to him while he was here visiting... we all forget especially while you're having lots of fun! :o) Just mail it and yes he may get it late... But I don't think you have to worry about him remembering since he's only gonna be 1! LOL Thanks for sharing such a great card! :o)

Heather R... mousemomma said...

Love the card! I just started cardmaking, but choke when I need to make one for anyone in particular. I guess the art part is easy, but the personal part is harder... :) I need to plan ahead I guess. I've got to craft two tomorrow or else they'll be late!! Yikes! Thanks for the chance to win a cart. Love your blog!

Very cute card.

Cute card...great paper!! Lee-Ann :)

Anniebee said...

This is a really cute "little dude" card! My problem is not that I forget to send the cards but rather that I never seem to be able to get it to the post office. I get the card and envelope made and addressed but then it sits on my desk until it's late or almost late. I just need to get a postal scale so I can do everything online! It sounds like you need to use your computer calendar to set up reminders for mailing yours out. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome cartridge. I have been wanting it since it came out.

Frank-LEE Speaking... said...

Love the cute card. I'm sure your nephew will love to have it anytime. We should teach them to celebrate the whole month that way we'll always have time to get our cards in. Smooches... Felicia at frankleecrafts[at]gmail[dot]com

girls -you have to get a calendar on your computer that reminds you of the birthdays. It stays there until you forward it to the next year or dismiss it - I use mine faithfully so I don't forget. Love the card and hope to win the giveaway. TFS

I have an old ceramic toast rack. I make all my cards for a month and stack them in date order (penciled mailing date in corner where stamp will go) in the rack. I check the rack each morning before going downstairs to see what has to be mailed. That is the only way I can remember. Love your cards.

Melanie: I have just the opposite problem. I am constantly needing cards, but can't seem to remember to make them up far enough in advance to have a reasonable stock. Too bad we don't live close, we could team up and solve each others problems!

I make 100's of cards a year for OWH, but forget to send any out to my family. It is sad and I should do better. I tell myself to do better and even get the card ready for the mailman, but think I will wait a few days so they can get it closer to their Birthday or the Holiday and then forget to mail it at all. Shame on me, LOL!

Love your card, it is a very nice one that you could easily change to 2 or 3. TFS
