Jack's Birthday Cards

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends and I'm off to a FULL RUN today as I prep for this coming Saturday's Stamp Club.  I need to prep the three projects that we will be making at Stamp Club and seriously I'm running out of time - so ..... I will be held up today in my studio till this evening and then I will be BUSTING OUT OF HERE to take a super fun Vintage Valentine's Mailbox class with my girlfriends down at Real Deals.   I can't wait to have some SERIOUS DOWNTIME with two of my girlfriends tonight ...... I'm sure we will laugh till someone CRIES and share some AMAZING stories along the way.  SO .... Let's jump right in with three birthday cards that Jack received from my SUPER AMAZING Girlfriends.........
First card up is from Kris - OH MY GOSH - Talk about giving Jack one of his favorite sports wrapped up in a birthday card - AWESOME IDEA Kris!  I'm pretty sure that Kris created this fun shaped card with the help of her Cricut ........
Her card actually stood right up - but the most amazing part of this card is it actually took on the feel of an actual football ........ check out this next photo .......
Kris ran her card through the Big Shot and used an embossing folder to create the actual look and feel of a football to her card.  Honestly - the texture on this card was just too much!  Many Thanks Kris - Jack loved your card!
Next up I have the super fun card that Jan made.  She used a Tim Holtz stamp and some Stampin' UP! Well Worn DSP and she created a fabulous and masculine birthday card for Jack.  ROCKIN COOL CARD OR WHAT!
Jan created a layer of the Tim Holtz truck image on the front of her card and this seriously gave her card that extra WOW FACTOR that honestly all of Jan's cards have. This was one of Jack's favorite cards that he received for his 79th birthday.  MANY THANKS JAN!   
And next is the card that Debbie (the birthday cake surprise QUEEN) made.  Just the right colors for Jack and the DSP collection is ....... "OH SO JACK".
Check out the extra embossing step that Debbie took in creating the focal image on her card.  SUPER STINKIN CUTE!  Debbie surprised Jack on his birthday (with the help of her husband and Kris) and showed up at our front door with a birthday cake just a flaming and singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jack when he opened the door.  SO FUN and SUCH A SUPER DUPER SURPRISE TO JACK!  Many thanks Kris, Debbie and Eddie for surprising Jack on his birthday.  HE SERIOUSLY HAD A FUN DAY!

I'm off to go start on my Stamp Club projects - have lots to do and only one day to get 'er done.  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you the Trinket Box Project that I made last weekend.  Hope you can come back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
