winter birthday wishes...


I can't imagine growing up with a December birthday {says the girl with a summer birthday}...especially if you are part of a family that combines birthday and Christmas...that stinks.

Whaddya think about this for a winter birthday card?


Yup, I'm back at it again playing with my Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go collection!

I added Studio Calico Wood Veneer Snowflake...and a SRM sentiment....all topped off with my vintage green thread.

This is my first time linking up to



They are having a Snowflake challenge...perfect for this card!

So, what are your weekend plans?  shopping?

I hope to get all my done tomorrow morning...I desperately need to fire up the Cameo, it has been sadly neglected the last couple of weeks.  I have several days off in a row from work {wahooooo!} so I'll be sure to to playing with the Cameo!

  1. Shopping (I think is done...thank goodness). We're having a few neighbors over for an impromptu happy hour tonight...hoping for a low key weekend!

    Love those wood snowflakes. They are the perfect touch for this b-day card.

  2. Almost nine years ago, my first born and I spent Christmas at the hospital. With the exception of a few visitors, we were all alone. I feel sorry for him in a way, his birthday is on the 24th. We always do try to do something separate for him, on his birthday. Your card is so classy and fun, and I think perfect for a December birthday!

  5. Happy winter card, Amy, love those wood elements! I had two daughters with December birthdays and one son with a Jan 1 birthday and our anniversary which was the 20th, so I know about December holidays. I always tried my best to give each a special day. A few years the girls had parties at Valentines and a couple of years I made one large tree cake, which each child's candles in sections. Have a wonderful Friday, good luck with your shopping and have fun!

  28. I had to come see this card on my PC in full size! It's gorgeous. So rich in color and texture! I love the touch of green stitching.

    I've always tried super hard to make people's BD's around Christmas NOT Christmas-y. I even mail their Christmas card and BD card a few days apart.
