Happy Birthday and a few other things

Is everyone having a great week and staying cool in this heat?
I have a few projects I wish to share and hope you all enjoy them as much as I did making them.

First, is a birthday card for my father-in-law, kept it simple for him.
Image is from Graphics Fairy; Fiskers punch;
sentiment - Stampin' Up!: It's your Birthday set;
cardstock - Cosmo Cricket Core impressions (core'dinations);
Tim Holtz Distress ink- vintage photo

Second is a birthday card for my son who turned 6.
Paper - KI Memories-Little Guy Page Kit; Martha Stewart punches;
the Paper Studio Corner punch; Happy Birthday w/Stars - Hobby Lobby;
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Barn Door; Archival Ink-Cobalt

Third, actually this next photo is something I won in a giveaway from Vampire Craftin.  I won a handmade item from Immortal Visions and because I love reading I choose a bookmark.  BUT if you like Vampire, Victorian & Gothic theme cards (actually more than that), you MUST check out her etsy shoppe.


Thank you for stopping in, comments are always welcome and very much appreciated.

Until next time - happy scrappin'! ~ Carol

Wow, you are an awesome card maker! I love your style! I have been thinking about doing a Stalker Challenge that involves making a card. I know there are others there who like to make them and I dabble. What do you think?
