Feb 7th 6:30 p.m. Birthday Bash Stamp-A-Stack Choices

LOTS of choices ladies! I hope it isn't overwhelming! The titles are just suggestions--the pink and green preppy girl might be perfect for your MOM...just making sure I did my best to cover all the bases.

Be Sure to let me know your Birthday Bash choices (choose 15 cards for $20--you do have to make at least 3 cards of each one that you decide to make) as soon as possible if you are reasonably sure you are able to come (ideally before Friday), so that I can place the cardstock order for the event! Along the same lines, please let me know if you are unable to make it on the 7th. Please use both the number and the name of the card for clarity. Payment is due on February 3rd.

1. Silly Crab--with or without "A Pinch to Grow an Inch" sentiment inside.

2. Whimsy Cake--General Use (Perhaps leave off the ribbon tie if you need to increase the masculinity?) :

3. Vintage Brown Car--Masculine Birthday (the script Happy Birthday sentiment on the Morning Glory card below will be used)

4. Cutesy Birthday Pick-Up truck--you write inside the tan/River Rock colored mini-card portion. I didn't design this one--I CASE'd it! I made it at the North Texas Shoebox Swap last fall, and changed the colors. Unfortunately, I didn't write down who made it in order to give credit.
5. Orange and Black Sports Fan--Happy Birthday can be substituted in the spot that says OSU, or you can just stamp Happy Birthday inside.

6. Boyish Birthday Balloons--

7. Asian Floral--Feminine Birthday (Warm Wishes can be replaced with "May your day bloom with happiness" if you'd like)

8. Light Blue Morning Glory--Feminine Birthday

9. Pink and Green Preppy Girl--is shaped to be a gift card holder as well--we'll tuck a bit of pink cardstock inside the pocket, so that it doesn't have to be a gift card holder.

10. All in the Family Birthday Boy
11. All in the Family Birthday Girl
