Friends of Unity October Blog Hop ~ Birthday

Hello, friends! Welcome to October!! 

But, where did September go?? Seriously, did it fly by as quick for you as it did for me??

And hey, Happy World Card Making Day! WCMD is always the first Saturday of October and created to encourage making handmade cards. I love that. I plan to make a card or 2 today and hope you can, too! Be sure to tag me if you do! I’d love to see! 

I do love October though! And, I love this months cue! Birthdays!

My mother turned 70 yesterday! She still looks, and happily acts, like she's in her 50's! I love it and I love her so very much. I have 2 granddaughters with birthdays this month. Syvalee turns 3 tomorrow and Fenley turns 2 on the 8th. :) :) So so sweet!

Any birthdays this month??  I'd love to know! 
(Our very own Dawn B and Kim K are having October birthdays!:) 


Each one of my cards are made from KOM stamps. What I love about the KOM is there are so many stamps in each set and they are truly versatile! 

This first card is from the June 2017 KOM called "TIME TO ENJOY LIFE".

This girl is so beautiful and so classy! The DSP is also from Unity called Birthday Party. It is a gorgeous pack of quality paper. 

This next card is from the December 2018 KOM called "BEST FRIEND TIL THE END". (Using the same sentiment from the KOM above.)

This was my first time using this girl and she is gorgeous! I made this card specifically for a friend who's milestone birthday I missed!! I'm loving how well all the different colors blend so nicely together.

I love dimension on a card!

My last, and probably favorite, card is from the June 2020 KOM called "CHANGE THE WORLD".

This lady is just beautiful. It was my first time using her, as well.

I don't always keep the sentiment on the front of a birthday card as a birthday greeting. Often times I picture the recipient wanting to display the card and I love for the visual sentiment to have really special meaning. The inside, then, will contain the birthday greeting! Handmade greeting cards are wonderful for displaying in the home. 

I loved using from my huge stash of DSP on each of these cards. It made me realize I do not use my beautiful pattern papers near enough. 

I would LOVE to know which card is YOUR favorite!

As always~

Thanks for spending time with me today!
