A Birthday Card & Sneak Peek

Posted on

Happy day after Christmas! Did you get everything that you wanted? I certainly did! I got to spend the first part of the day with my family. I have some pictures for you too. The second half of the day Andrew came by and we just hung out. He is doing well, just some eye discomfort. We also had a Jewish Christmas dinner as he put it, Chinese food! I hope that all of you had equally wonderful Christmas days! I did get to see my little nephew yesterday too. In the first picture you can see that he is hanging on my every word! LOL!


Either that or he is thinking what is this nut talking about! Oh, and if you look on the wall behind me you can see me when I was little! The next picture is Daniel, my brother Jason, his wife Erika and I. Can you tell that we are related?!


Daniels is bored with the entire process that is going on! He did have a very cute little sweater on though, and the shoes!

Today I have a birthday card that I sent to a very good friend of mine who lives out in Indiana. I had actually just gotten my box of goodies when I made this card so all of the stuff on it is from the 2014 Occasions Catalog that you can order from starting January 3, 2014! The base of the card is Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper Pack*. The frame, filmstrip, camera and arrow are all cut out with the On Film Framelits Dies*. The frame from Coastal Cabana with So Saffron and the filmstrip and camera from Gold Foil Sheet. The arrow has a greeting from the Express Yourself Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Tangerine Tango. The greeting in the middle of the filmstrip is from the Peachy Keen Stamp Set* and is also stamped in Tangerine Tango. It’s a fun colorful card and I love the gold accents. I hope that you enjoyed my birthday card and pictures for today’s post. Thanks so much for paying me a visit, have a great Thursday! 🙂

Hard to tell as you both look so young. And Erika is very pretty! I love this card! Great colors and the gold looks so nice on here! And isn’t that camera framelit just the cutest thing? Thanks for sharing…enjoy your day!

  8. Justin, a lovely card for your friend and a lovely family too, your nephew is very sweet!! Happy Boxing Day from a Canadian peep.

  9. Such a lovely picture. So glad you had a nice Christmas. I posted yesterday giving you well wishes but somehow it wasn’t there when I checked back in last night. Your friend receiving today’s card is very lucky indeed.

  10. OMG, he is soooo cute. Oh, and the baby is kinda cute too, lol!! Almost forgot to look at the great card you made too Justin. I can’t wait to get my hands on these thinlits. Just three more days to go before I can place my pre-order!!!

  11. Justin,
    Wonderful family photos—we all feel like members of your family!
    Question–I LOVE this card–def. a CASE for my club members—did you use an embossing folder for the layer on top of the DSP? It looks like maybe it’s the new one with the diagonal lines. I’d really much appreciate knowing.
    Thanks SO much!!! Nola—still snow on the ground here in my neck of NE—rain coming in later today—to was it away!

    • Nola,
      Thank you! You are all my extended family for sure! You all make my days brighter! The lines in the frame are part of the die! Pretty cool huh?! I hope that your rain washed all of the snow away! 🙂
