"Surprise" Birthday Set

Happy Saturday! I've been off the blogger grid as it's been pretty chaotic on my end but since things are beginning to settle down it was time to get a little crafty. I decided to stock up on my birthday cards. My goal is to have enough for a birthday calendar once Christmas rolls around.

I pulled out my OA Surprise set from The Greeting Farm. They are just too cute!

For this card, I'm playing with:
TGFSCS Sketch 16
The Stamp Spot - A spot of Yellow, Button, Grosgrain Ribbon
Bunny Zoe Crafts - Anything Goes

Medium: Prismacolor Pencils, except Oliver's face
Paper for Both Cards: 
My Minds Eye - Fly a Kite
Recollections Kraft and Red
The Twinery Twine 

For this card I'm playing with:
TGF: FFF - Masculine Card
Anyone for Anya - Stiching

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday. Thanks for stopping by!

Both these cards are GREAT! I would love to make a birthday calendar too. What are you thinking about buying one or are you going to make one? I need to explore this idea too to make it easier and more organized.

Stay Creative,
