Happy Birthday Bro!

Hi this is Sherry- Welcome to my new blog!  I felt like it was time for a change since I am basically starting all over again. So I hope you will join me and follow as I rekindle my love for stamping.  You can also see my work on the Stamping With the Oldies blog.  Myself and 4 other amazing stampers are using OLD supplies to make NEW and fresh creations!
Today I am showing you a birthday card I made for my brother.  Sure, his birthday was Wednesday and I haven't mailed it yet, but at least I made it, right?
For this card I pulled out my old buddy Riley.  I have about 4 Riley stamps that I bought while he was part of Hannah Stamps- so yes, they definitely qualify under the Oldie part.  In fact, this is the first time I used my Prismacolor pencils to color Riley.  Crazy, right?  Back when I bought him I was still using just my SU markers.  A lot has changed since then.

To simulate water I cut SU Pacific Point in a wavy pattern (free-handed) and embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder.  I kept it pretty simple- the HB is from the SU set, "It's Your Birthday" (I think?)  And of course I stamped Happy Birthday on the inside.

I hope he likes it even if it is late.  But then again if I sent someone in my family a card on time they might have a heart attack from the shock- and my brother is getting OLD.  (says the baby of the family who is 10 years  :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thursday!  One more day until the weekend- AND VSN!  I hope to break out my older supplies and play along- I hope to see you there!



  1. It's adorable!! Glad you see you blogging again.

  2. I'm your first follower! Congrats on the new blog. I seem to ebb and flow with blogging - it's all in what you want to make time for, right?

    Super cute Riley. I've got a bunch from the Hanna days and from his newer home. Love how you made the water! I'm sure your bro will love it, even if it is late ;)

    Happy Stamping!
