Here's the other birthday card I did the other day. It is for my grandson, who loves fish, the kind in an aquarium. He and his dad each have an aquarium for the fish they like. I used 1 12 x 12 sheet of designer paper for both the envelope and the card. The envelope uses 8 x 8 for a standard envelope and the remaining pieces I used for the front of the card.
For this card I used the new Circle Thinlet and the circle die, which is one of the extra pieces in this set. I love the thinlets, both the Circle and the Label. They make some really nice a bit out of the ordinary cards. I like to shake things up once in a while and do something different so I was really happy to see these thinlets.
The stamp is Fishin' Around, which is a 1 stamp set, at $8.95 it is a really inexpensive stamp. I'm going to use it for the younger grands for future cards. I haven't done much water coloring lately. I have no idea why, because I feel water coloring is my very favorite technique. It makes me feel like a real artist. I need to get back to it again. You can't see it here, but inside I made a small slit and inserted a piece of green -- the spending kind.
So there is the other birthday card. Perhaps I can find a pic or two of the birthday. Let me see...........
Here's dad and the kids at dad's house. They had a grand time, but I had even more fun. I have to drive a long way to visit when they don't come up to our house, but it is worth it. I love spending time with them, they make me happy!
See that big grin on my face? That is HAPPY!
Have a great day. Be sure to come back again soon.
