Get Carded - A Pacific Northwest Birthday

Hello! I have a friend who has lived in the Seattle area for many years now, but her heart is in her native state of Oregon. So what better card to craft for her birthday than the following? 

Supplies used:
- white card stock
- yellow card stock scrap
- yellow plaid card stock scrap
- "Oregon" game card piece from vintage State Capitals game
- German scrap piece (girl figure)
- "Mary" cut from vintage alphabet flashcard set
- "happy" and "birthday" cut from various sources
- hand-dyed (by me) pale yellow string

The recipient loved her card and framed it to keep out on display - I can't think of a better compliment than that! And I didn't think it was my best effort - as I told her, my brain starts to fizzle a little with all the baking and crafting that I do this time of year. 

I do enjoy creating a homemade Christmas though! (and homemade birthdays!) 


  1. Just thought I would let you know that I was on the Sentinel site just now (about 2:00 p.m.) and saw your blog, kind of highlighted with this post. That was pretty quick.

  2. Thanks for noticing! I think the link to the Sentinel is finally working as it should. :)
