happy birthday! cards!

IMG_4256 there are a handful of very very special people who have birthdays in march, and this year i decided to make some custom hand lettered birthday cards to send their way. orange and white, with some very cool gold metallic gel ink on the envelopes. these aren't up in the shop, but if you're looking for something to help say, 'hey! you! i'm so glad you were welcomed onto this planet when you were!' - well, i'd love to help make that happen.

so, a brief interlude here while i mention that this past wednesday was my dear roommate  (and talented photographer - check out her websitelexi b.'s birthday.  this wonderful lady has made my stay so far in chicago incredibly fun, adventurous and, most importantly, filled with the most amazing and quite tasty dinners and parties.  obviously i had to embellish her birthday card with my new papercutting obsession...

love and good cheer for another year!

and enter the birthday boy

it just so happens that on this day in the years 1986 and 1988, my very best friend and my very best younger brother, respectively, were brought into this world.  last week, i couldn't wait to post images of lk's little birthday bundle, and now i've got just a few sneaks of the card/envelope i'm sending home to massachusetts.

 

alexander, happy happy twenty-third - now you're almost as old as me!  oh wait, i suppose that's how it is every year.
