Cards for a Cause -- male birthday

I think I am most pleased with the masculine birthday cards.  Typically masculine cards are difficult for me to make, but these cards came together nicely.  I'm glad there is a variety of interests to choose from.  Now I just need to make some for my own use...

Cards for a Cause -- female birthday

Now for the female birthday cards...  My favorite is the die cut bird card, but the purple card is a close second.

Cards for a Cause -- Kid Birthday

Each year the youth of our church host a huge fundraiser.  The money is used to send kids on mission trips, to youth camp, and for community outreach.  Over the year I purchase items to be used for the silent and live auctions.  I try to make something as well.  This year I created a set of 15 birthday cards to be used in the silent auction.  There are 5 for kids, 5 for women, and 5 for men.  I'll start by sharing the cards I made with kids in mind.

New Baby

 Last month we had the privilege to go and meet our new niece the day she arrived.  It's been awhile since I needed a new baby card, so I had fun creating a card to give with our gift.  I couldn't forget our young nephew, who became a big brother.  He loves horses, so I incorporated that into the card I made for him.  One of the little things we took him was a miniature toy horse to play with.
