Sweet Birthday Wishes!

I participated in a card kit swap on SCS. This card was created with elements from 2 different kits. I love the color combo they gave me to work with. This stamp set from SU is so pretty and sweet. I now have it on my never ending wish list. The card is already out the door and was given to my boss today for her b-day.

I have always been a little nervous to work with chipboard. I don't know why, I guess I was just not sure what to do with it. So needless to say I was excited to get this card kit in our swap so I could play!! I took ink spots to color in the chipboard flower and then accented it with the flower sticker embelishment. I think it turned out different and cute. I learned some new things for next time I work with chipboard.

Ooooh, am I the first person to write on this post! Firstly I would just like to say that I really like your birthday card designs! You are really talented! Making your own birthday cards is by far the better way than spending a lot of money on those big greetings card companies! Just wanted to leave a little comment about how cool I think electronic greetings are. There are so many people that don't really agree with sending e-cards, I think maybe they feel that it is a lazy way to send a greeting, and are more in favor of the traditional way of buying a 'real' card, and sticking a stamp on it and popping it in the post.
However, I think this is one of those cases of 'don't knock it till you've tried it', I am a fan of electronic greetings cards. A lot of my computer wiz kid mates introduced me to e-cards, and that is how I began using them. I think when you try something new, you are recommended it by word of mouth, and that is exactly what happened to me.
I have recently been sending my friends a Happy Birthday e-Card greeting when they are at work! They just said it was a really idea and that it brightens up their day. I have tried quite a lot of e-Card sites, and I have now found a really cool Free Happy Birthday Day e-Card site that I really like. This particular site has an awesome application where you can upload a photograph of yourself and incorporate it into your card. This is such a clever idea, and adds that personal touch, and as I already mentioned this particular site is totally free. I think e-Cards are definitely worth a try, they are not for everyone, but I am becoming a fan! Just wanted to share my findings with you all.Hope you find this useful, Have a good rest of your afternoon, Nicole.
