My Digital Birthday Card

So I went from not posting for over a month to two posts in one day.. haha. Time to get back to crafting.

I just wanted to share the card that my other half made for me for my birthday. It's so darn cute!

He always goes on about digital stamping and digital paper and how I should use it more often. Last year for my birthday I said I wanted Bacon and Eggs for my birthday and that's exactly what I got... he made me a Bacon and Eggs SVG, along with a card he made using digital paper and font. There's a link so you can download my Bacon and Eggs SVG on my post from last year.

So of course this years card was you guessed it... made using digital images and my printer.

heeeheeeeheee this is to cute!
He even used a program to make his actual hand writing into font to use and print off the computer.

This was on the back of the card and I cashed it in right away and even managed to get two foot rubs :)

 Maybe one of these years I will find some time to play with digital stamps and paper.

Hope everyone has a great day!

How Time Flys.

Well the month of may flew past like the blink of an eye. So many things went on last month which left little time to craft.

One of those many things going on in the month of May was my 35th birthday... I can't believe I'm 35! Time goes by so fast these days.

Well I decided to treat myself to the Silhouette Cameo Designer Edition.... heeeeheee. Yay for new toys! Now I just have to find it a home upstairs in my craft area :p

Even tho lots was going on I did however make two cards for a little girl who broke her arm.

The first card I used my  brand new Silhouette Cameo along with the "That Hurt" file from Miss Kate Cuttables. There are so many cute files to choose from on the Miss Kate Cuttables site... I love them all! I used some SU dimensionals to pop up the title.

Then using a $1.50 stamp I got at Michaels I made my background paper, matted it in black and then placed that onto a red card base.

For the inside sentiment I used the same stamp as the background paper only stamped in American Crafts red Ink instead.

Super happy with the way it turned out...I LOVE my Cameo!

For the second card I used a piece of patterned paper from my stash and cut out only the part I wanted. Gave it a mat, added some ribbon and stamped my sentiment in Memento Black ink.

The sentiment is from the Pink By Design set called Joyful Tags.

For the inside I first stamped the horse from the Best in the West stamp set in some Memento Lilac ink and then stamped the sentiment from the Cowgirl Up stamp set on top of the horse.

Both stamp sets are from Pink By Design.

Well I'm sure I will spend a lot more time in my craft area over the next few months playing with my new toy, trying to figure out how to use all the features on it. So many things to do and so little time.

Hope everyone is having a great start to the summer.
