Birthday Boys

Hi there!

There's still time to enter my giveaway! You can find it here.

March is a busy birthday month in my family. Both of my boys celebrate this month. It's difficult for me to make guy cards, so I tried to create ones that match their personalities.

My youngest son's special day is today! Happy Birthday, David! He is 16 today and a total joy in our lives. . .so full of energy and life! He has this wonderful ability to make us laugh each and everyday! We love you so much, Bud! Here's the card I made for David.



My older son, Erich will be 20 on Friday. Wow! Life sure goes by fast! Erich is the more serious one of the two. He amazes us with his brilliant intelligence and kind heart! He has a beautiful, gentle soul. Happy Birthday, Erich! We love you very much! Here is the card I made for Erich.



Erich's card was inspired by Hero hostess, Sharon. She made a gorgeous card for the Hero Arts blog yesterday, and I loved it! Thank you for the inspiration, Sharon!

Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share the love we have for our boys! :)

Thank you for this amazing inspiration, Barb! These cards are fantastic, and so perfect for your young men! How fun that they share the same birthday week, that was some fancy planning on your part....or maybe not.
Have a wonderful week, sweet friend, blessings to you and special birthday wishes for your boys!

Both cards are wonderful! Love the vibrancy of the first card and the second card is beautiful with the ghost stamped images on the panels. Happy Birthday to Erich and David! Hope their days are special!

Wow, Barb, your desription of your boys reminds me almost exactly of my own two boys (just a tad younger than yours...11 and 6!). I love how you matched the "personality" of each card to their personality. What a fun, vibrant red, white and black card for David! And what a rich, masculine card for Erich. Perfect! Thanks for sharing...enjoy this happy week with your family!
