My Brother's Birthday - The Cutting Cafe meets Making Handmade Cards

Happy Friday my friends!

I'm running ever so slightly behind on posting my Friday post. I set the preset post time WRONG! Oooopsie! LOL!

Today I have some wonderful digi papers from Making Handmade Cards and also to compliment the "handsome" papers, I've used some digi stamps from The Cutting Cafe'! The paper set is called "Perfect Gentleman". These few papers I've used here are only a tiny few of what's in this kit.
And look how smart this stamp looks on this blue pinstripe paper. The stamp is from a set called "Extended Family Happy Birthday". After I cut the circle out with my Nesties, I punched 2 holes and threaded the twine through them and tied a bow. Then used pop dots to raise it up off the card base.
See that nifty frame there? It's on a sheet of papers in the PG kit. I trimmed around it by hand. I just love how fancy schmancy it looks!
My brother has got to be the best brother ever....also he's a wonderful Daddy and hubby too! I can always count on him to help me if I ask. Every year I want to make him a special card with lots of love in it....and I really love how this one turned out this year! Oh, BTW...his bday was the 25th and we are 4 years apart, he's the younger of us two. Hugs and smoochies little brother!
Okay, that's about all for me today. Be sure to join me on Monday for the monthly Bitten By The Bug Blog Hop! I'll be giving away a neato prize, so come check me out and join in on the hop! HUGS till next time!

Pin It!
