Saturday Shares Handmade Cards I Received For My Birthday

handmade cards

It’s Saturday Share and today I thought I would share some of the handmade cards that I received this year for my birthday from some of my stamping friends. Each one a different stamp set and each one so beautiful.  This first card was sent to me by Sara Hoogendoorn.  It is so beautiful and I love all Sara’s watercolor cards she is so good at it.

This card was sent to me by my friend Holly Pedersen.  So pretty and I love how the designer series paper she used looks like textured drywall or plaster; it gives so much dimension to the card.  Night of Navy and Basic White is always a win in my book.

This card was sent to me by my friend France Martin.  I love how she used the Stitched Rectangles dies to create a “Faux Frame” on the card front.  The blues and browns are gorgeous together.   I need to pull this stamp set out again and use it; so pretty.

Finally this card was given to me by my friend Donne Hoogeveen.  I love how she used a Christmas stamp set to make a birthday card and by changing up the colors makes it look like a beautiful fall card.

I hope you enjoyed my Saturday Share of handmade cards and that these beautiful cards give you inspiration like they do me.

Today is my son Neil’s birthday so I thought I’d show you the card I’m giving to him.  It is one that I did a while ago but I think you will like the fun fold.
