Hooray for Birthdays!

Hi!  There has been quite a bit going on here.  This month I decided to start cleaning my craft room AND my son's bedroom, which got a complete makeover!  I also somehow managed to give myself a pinched nerve in my neck resulting in pain all down my arm which has really cramped my style these last few weeks.   I haven't been doing much of anything.  No reading.  And only the occasional crafting.  This past weekend I had an 84th birthday party to attend and a coworker was celebrating his special day as well.  I splurged a bit over at My Favorite Things Stamps this month and I decided it was the perfect opportunity to break out some of my new goodies.

The first card was made for my great-aunt's birthday.  I wanted something elegant and simple and I think this card is the perfect combination of both.  Also, notice.  No coloring and it's a standard A2 size instead of one of my usual 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" squares.  Trying to step out of my comfort zone a bit more...

My co-worker has a characteristic red beard and it was a no brainer to use Hipster Cat from Some Odd Girl combined with new dies acquired from MFT Stamps for his birthday card.  I embossed the sentiment using a stamp from the MFT Stamps Essential Sentiments stamp set.
