Yes, you can believe it...TWO of my husband's sisters have birthdays in October and only one day apart, but several years between! I so love fall cards, and I am thankful that I have a reason to make cards for this season as I do not send them for Thanksgiving! I made the following two cards from a card kit designed by my sister, Heidi Gonzales (www.mylilscrapcorner.blogspot.com). Heidi is a wonderful teacher, as she lets her "students" tweak and personalize their cards to fit personal preferences. This first card became a square rather than a rectangle by enlarging it and adding a cream edge and ribbon embellishment. The front sentiment has been changed to fit a birthday greeting. I decorated the inside to coordinate with the front and added a personal verse or poem using my computer. I hope my sister-in-law, June, likes her card. Her birthday is special, because she shares the same birth date as my son, Mark!
And, the inside verse:
Happy birthday June...hope your day is very special!
Next is Judy's birthday...one day later! Again, I was able to use a fall card from the kit Heidi Gonzales designed! I only tweaked the size, making the card square instead of rectangle, and changed the front sentiment to fit a birthday. The card's design remains true to the original...such a wonderful design! Once again, I decorated the inside to coordinate with the front, adding a personalized verse.
And, its inside verse:
Happy birthday Judy...I hope your day is wonderful!
