Birthday Cards {my dad & mom's christmas gift}

Now that my Dad and Mom FINALLY got their Christmas package, I can share these cards with you.  I sent it off on December 14th, thinking it would get there in time for Christmas...WRONG!!  They didn't get it until the 27th.  Atleast I tried!!

Okay...back to the cards.  For the last few years, part of my Christmas gift to my parents has been homemade birthday cards  (HERE is a look at their 2010 cards, and the 2011 cards looked like THIS). 

This year I decided to go with pennant banners, and here's what I came up with:

Triangle pennant banners for the BOYS...

And scalloped circle banners for the GIRLS...

I used my sewing machine to stitch along the banners and around the edge of the cards, and LOVE how they turned out!  The box that I used came from the Beautiful Wings Tutorial from Paper Crafter's Library (you can receive the tutorial for FREE if you 'like' Paper Crafter's Library's Facebook Page), and the 'Happy Birthday' stamp is from the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler set.

Now I need to figure out what I'm going to make for MY birthday cards for 2012!!  Hopefully inspiration will strike soon...
