thirty nine: birthday cards for the boy

It's the boyfriend's birthday today :) The Mac broke so I couldn't use SCAL so the card was made last minute. Thank goodness he went out last night! This card is from the doggies: Look at their little paws!

DCWV pattern paper
Paper Pups cartridge
Sweethearts cartridge
Gingerbread chalk ink

This is my card for him. My stinkin printer was not working either so I had to handwrite the Calvin and Hobbes font. Turned out pretty good though. And the Calvin is an svg file I found online.

Hee hee. "Happy Birthday Calvin" is an inside joke. My boyfriends name is not Calvin..that would be weird.

thirty seven: sliding gift card

It's our neighbor's birthday so I needed to make him a card. His gf bought him a PS3 so what else would we give him? A gift card to Gamestop of course. I am such a hands on person so I'm always looking for interactive cards. I think that's why I like making cards rather than scrapbooking. Found this sliding gift card video by browsing the web. It's really quite simple and a fun little card.

thirty six: pet alert

I finally played around with vinyl! I ordered this stuff last year and have only now tested it out. My boyfriend kept bugging me to make a pet alert sign for our house so here it is.

thirty four: panda thanks

A special thank you card for my brother. I sent a panda poopoo paper frame from the zoo, with my sister to give to my brother. I think he loves it :)

thirty three: thanks a bunch t-slider

It was my birthday recently, yay for another year older...not. It's seriously all down hill after 21. Anyway, I decided to try out this T-slider card from splitcoaststampers It was pretty easy enough once I figured it out so I ended up making 6 total, that way I can have an extra stash of cards. They all worked after I made them but the next day when I wanted to write a message, only 1 worked! Now I'm trying to figure out if I can salvage them :(
