Birthday Cheers!


August is all about the birthdays! My own, my hubbie’s, and lots and lots of friends and crafty pals! I would love to send you ALL a beautiful hand-crafted card! Maybe if I start now, I’ll have enough ready for NEXT August!

Today, I’m going to share a few of my favorite birthday card ideas, a few new, and a few old favorites. The purple shaker above is a new card for an old friend, using some of his favorite colors to make a Burberry inspired festive salute!


This earth-toned Happy shaker has some of my favorite color combinations that I just don’t use as often as I should. Brown is such a beautiful, neutral shade that goes so well with so many colors! It’s nice mixed with August peridot green and sunshine yellow.  August is an unusual month – -hot summer days or warm autumn colors – -fiery Leos or earth goddess Virgos?


This simple and bright birthday greeting is what I like to call a “faux shaker.” It has the cute little window, but no acetate window or sequins, and is wonderful for mailing!


Sometimes, birthdays are all about the gifts!


Or about the wishes!


Or about the party!


Or about the joy!

But birthdays are ALWAYS about the love we share with each other!

Thanks for joining me today!

Live your life in color!


“There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why.”     William Barclay, Scottish writer
