Birthday boldness

Sometimes I don't get time to craft.... then I get a chunk of time to create but no time to blog.  Life is a little like waves - up and down, back and forth.  It's easier for me to just go with it right now rather than try and swim against it.  But enough random thoughts about why it's taken me so long to blog.  Here's one of the cards I made recently in my creative wave time.

I really struggle to make cards that are not to feminine (not that there's anything wrong with that).  I feel like with this card I've achieved it.  It's striking but could be used for anyone of any age.  I love that you can get dies that cut our such intricate letters - and better yet - you can buy glue with a fine enough tip to adhere them :-)  Crafting is all about making it easy in my house. I'll just let you think I'm a genius - even though this is just 3 die cut shapes and some glue ;-)

I did decide to go the extra mile with this one though and make a matching envelope.  Well ok it's easy.  It was a pre-made envelope that I stick a strip of paper on.  But doesn't it look good?  Just because it's easy doesn't mean I didn't work hard.  I mean this took me at least 2 cups of coffee ;-)

Anyway I'm happy with how this turned out.  I'll let my friends think I'm a creative genius and you'll keep my secret right?

Happy crafting.
