Funny Birthday Cards!

Many people enjoy receiving a birthday card that makes them laugh! Especially birthday people who have celebrated many, many birthdays!

No matter what kind of a birthday card you choose to give, it is extra nice to present a real card! They can look at it later, display it, and remember their celebration. Plus, they will appreciate your thoughtfulness!

Here are two funny birthdays cards I created that will result in a smile, maybe even a chuckle or two!

Scratch off birthday card, funny cards, funny words, cards for baby boomers, designed by HorseMark Cards

I used the stamp set from ‘Inky Antics‘ to create this funny birthday card. When you scratch off the circles, the words ‘liver spots’, “wrinkles”, and “adult diapers” are revealed. There are many other words included in this set, and you can even create you own!

There are many embossing folders on the craft market. I chose one that looks like a quilt to create this next card. I used the top portion of an “Art Impressions” stamp of an old woman and tucked her in bed. My customer really liked this card!

Hanging Out at the Beach!

Many people enjoy being on the beach. Some are fortunate enough to live by the ocean water, while others choose to visit the seasides.

If you can’t be at the beach, at least you can have a card that reminds you of the beach!

April Showers Bring May Flowers & Fruit!

This blog title sure sums up how the weather has been in northern California this year! We have had record rainfall, which is great, but it seems to come all at once! Fortunately, we have had several days of sunshine sprinkled in between all the rainy and windy days!

We moved into our new home and are discovering the new plants in our yard. A grapevine, orange tree, loquat tree and a fig tree are blooming now. I can’t wait to see how the fruit will be! Not sure about the loquats, but it will be interesting to see how they taste! (I’m not a fig lover, except in cookies! If anyone has a recipe to share, it will be appreciated!)

My creative room is about eighty percent complete. I have created a few cards already and I would love to share this special one I designed for
someone who loves flamingos!

I love Graphic45 papers, and I have had this paper for awhile so it was wonderful to finally be able to use it! I love the contrasting colors, and my customer really liked this card. I had the flower appliques that matched the colors, so it was the perfect touch! This was designed as a Mother’s Day card, but I can certainly see me creating note cards, thank you cards, or birthday cards from the other panels with this beautiful paper!

A Quick Hello!

Hello!

I thought I would share this birthday card designed with cards that I created for someone very special a couple of years ago.

Remember to give a card to the people in your life. They will appreciate it! In today’s fast paced world, receiving something in the mail that isn’t junk or a bill will certainly be opened first!

Hope you enjoy your creative day!

Enjoy Your Celebrations!

Hello!

This is such a busy time of year and the calendar is filled with so many different things to do and places to go!

Aside from getting ready for the upcoming holidays, many of us will be celebrating anniversaries and birthdays. Some of you may even be planning a fun filled vacation with friends! Other events may also be taking up so much of your time and the planning and organizing stages are set in motion. So many things….so little time!

(Happy Birthday for those celebrating in November and December!)

Several items and events on my schedule are requiring a good portion of my time and will keep me busy for the next couple of months. It is because of these things (all very positive and good) that I must take a break from blogging and social media for a few weeks.

I would like to thank all my regular followers, and those of you that are just discovering HorseMark Cards, for your continued support. Your encouragement has meant a lot to me! I will be back soon!
