March, the busiest month of the year when it comes to birthdays among my friends and family. I feel I’ve started strong this year by making two cards and it’s still February! Not sure I’ll use the second card but it’s always good to have some backup cards.
For the first card I followed this week’s mojo monday challenge #333
For the second card I followed the sketch from freshly made sketches #124
My youngest cousin turns 3 today and he’s a big batman fan so I decided to make him a themed card
I used my sizzix to cut out two oval shapes, one yellow and one black. Then I cut out the bat by hand and adhered it on the yellow piece. I stamped some dots on the gray background and smudged some gold glimmer mist over the badge to make it shine.
I used this week’s sketch from Freshly made sketches and the pink gem challenge #111; for the boys
So I finally managed to finish my cards for this Christmas, they are supposed to be mailed tomorrow at latest but I might just do that on Tuesday instead, depends on how much time I have tomorrow since I didn’t manage to write the addresses.
I’m going to make this post a quick one as I’m really tired after this weekend filled with candy and card making among other things.
So here are the cards, some of them are made inspired by challenges which I will name and link below each image. I might edit and update this post tomorrow to make it a bit more interesting and informative.
Sorry for the terrible lightning, the sun sets so damn early this time of the year.

Two of my friends are getting married (or they are married now) and I made them a card for the big day. I managed to assemble the pieces in the car on my way to the party, after some unplanned changes this is how it turned out:
I love the wee stamp, it’s super cute and fun to color! I wish I had more weddings to attend
Here’s what I first planned for, a bit messy!
A friend of mine asked me to make her a birthday card for a friend and here’s what she got!
I used paper from first edition paper pads, I’ll have to look up the names later on. The pink paper is sprayed with mists, pink and pearl. The stamp is from Kenny K and was colored with promarkers, flexmarkers and stickles.
