It's Birthday Card Central in the Happy Heart

I have been working hard to get all the birthday cards done for my sister....she asked for 11 birthday cards for the summer Bible Study she is co-leading. I've got enough finished to get her started but I will have more to make when I return from Chicago.

Oh did I mention that I'm going to CHA....leaving in 2 days! I'll be traveling with Kelly and Mike of Lawn Fawn. We are going early to construct the booth from scratch....I'm taking my vitamins and flexing my painting muscles to get ready. If you will be in Chicago, stop by the Lawn Fawn booth and do a Make n Take with me!

So on to the birthday cards....I'll be sharing them over the next couple weeks while I'm gone. The first card is one I made for my darling hubby. It was completely inspired by THIS card by Jenny that was featured on Lawn Fawn's Fawny Flickr Friday. It totally made me smile and is perfect because my hubby is kind of famous for his "Tom Selleck" mustache.

Here's my guy with our littlest guy:

They both make me smile! The papers are from my scrap basket and are by K and Company, Basic Grey and Sassafras. Stamps are linked below.

I hope the weather is cooling off where you are.  It's starting to heat up here finally so at least I won't be missing the cool weather while I'm in the Mid-West for the next week and a half.

hugs and blessings,
