Birthday Somethings CHALLENGE

This week's challenge over at
is to create something that could be given for a birthday (card, invitation, present, etc), something that would be seen at a birthday (party favor, centerpiece, cake...) or something that reminds you of birthdays in general.
This is a card I made for my BIL. His birthday is not for a while, but I like making my cards ahead of time. (He doesn't even know I have a blog so I am safe.) So tell me, does it look real?

Fold Gate Card

Have you seen the Bear Hugs stamp set over at ATS? It is so adorable. It it the top thing on my wish list. lol

I don't have the set yet, but I still want to play along- with a fold gate card. Thanks for the instructions. Here is my take on it:

I was sent the papers and embellishments in a mystery card challenge. I had no idea how I was going to pull off using everything until I saw Cyndi's post for Aug. 15th over @ ATS. Thanks Cyndi.

Birthday Cake Mini Album

Here are some pictures of a birthday cake album I made up while my computer was down. It is amazing how creative you can get once you have more time. I see now that I spend way to much time on the internet, and have started taking actions to correct this. lol

It was all made with scraps and misc. embellishments. I had a lot of fun making it. So if you are reading this blog and have been on the computer for a while, get off and go create!

A big thanks to Diana Crick at Scor-pal!

I would like to thank Diana over @ Scor-pal for her wonderful donation.
Everyone that knows me knows that I supply the material for my classes out of my own pocket. Being a disabled veteran and living on a fixed income leaves me only a small amount of funds for this. This donation makes it possible for us to have this wonderful tool which will help my students greatly, some of which are disabled like myself. Even with me not having any feeling in my dominate hand, I was able to use the Scor-pal with ease. I can not say enough about this tool, which is a must have for anyone that does any paper crafting. If you were thinking about getting one, they are very reasonably priced and very easy to use.
