Happy Birthday

It turned out that I had not one, but two birthday cards to make in a hurry yesterday and to top it all they were for a married couple.

Having limited supplies with me, I thought I would make use of the Hip Hip Hooray card kit for one of the cards and use some of the Designer Series Paper that I had left over from my last visit together with a couple of the stamp sets and framelit dies that I brought over in my hand luggage this trip.

Although it was Julie's 50th birthday I don't have any number stamps or dies with me, but one of the greetings from the Another Great Year stamp set had just the right message that I wanted to convey. I also had to make an envelope using my Envelope Punch Board because I did not have any standard UK sized ones with me.

Tom's card was made using the Hip Hip Hooray card kit. This is a great kit as the colours lend themselves to cards for both men and women. I kept this one neutral but could have used other colours which would have made it more feminine.

I'm sorry to say that we had to leave the party before all the presents and cards were opened, so I hope that they both liked their respective cards.  I had to get up early this morning for a 8.00 am flight and I'm now sitting in a hotel in Savannah, Georgia writing this. This is supposed to be a quick post as I promised to share a photo and now we are off out to find some dinner.

Tomorrow we have a tour of the university that Michael is interested in (Savannah College of Art and Design, aka SCAD) and Tuesday we get back on the plane (two actually) back to San Diego. I certainly can't say that life is boring in the Whitten household.
