Catered Crop–Good Birthdays Recipe Swap

The Catered Crop has a recipe challenge for every one.  Who doesn’t need birthday cards?    I always feel like I am rushing to get them done and popped in the mail on time (or only a little late).  So this is your chance to get a couple birthday cards made before the last minute!  Yeah!


2014-02-18 card WM


I escaped for a while into my craft room on Sunday afternoon. Wouldn’t you know that I finally find time to get up there and then  I can’t come up with a single idea.  That is when Pinterest really comes in handy.   After surfing around for a bit, I was inspired by this beautiful card by Joy Taylor at Simple by Design.  I used different papers and changed the layout a bit. 

Of course if you are looking for some birthday inspiration, Linda from the Catered Crop has put together this fabulous Pin-spiration board.    You can click on the photo below to go to the board.



If you are inspired to make some birthday cards, don’t forget to share them by posting your link at the Catered Crop
