It’s Birthday Time! A penguin punch art birthday card & giveaway!

Well, today is my birthday and I had to put together a special post for you this morning!  It’s been birthday month at my house and after my daughter’s birthday a week and a half ago, now it is my turn to celebrate!  With Christmas and my son’s birthday around the corner, I don’t typically plan parties or big events at home… but I thought I would have a little party online.

Birthday (Long) Weekend CeleBration

I decided that even though traditionally the birthday boy or girl gets presents, I would have fun sharing with you!  So, each day from now until Sunday, I’ll be sharing a project and offering a giveaway.

So first up, my happy little birthday card I shared with my gals at club this month:

birthday penguins punch artOk, I’ll admit, this is a slight variation on the card we made in club… this version uses one of the new designer series papers from the upcoming Occasions Catalog – Retro Fresh.  I LOVE the colors in this paper and the fun modern patterns.

Anyway, aren’t these penguins adorable?!?  I finally broke down and got the Owl Punch and these were the first guys I made.  They are so easy to make and so stinkin cute.  I’ll put together a little tutorial for tomorrow on how to make them if folks are interested.

Presents Time!

And no birthday party would be complete without presents, so here are the presents up for grabs today:

  1. I would love the tutorial for these penguins. What are the odds of me having all the tools to make this card.
    Thanks for the continued inspiration, Jennifer, and Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday! My favorite birthday tradition is eating cake. Because after all calories don’t count on your birthday. Thanks for a chance to win these amazing Stampin Up goodies!

  3. I love the penguins!! The card is so cute and festive, i have it out as a holiday decoration! I must get the owl punch sometime soon. Happy Birthday Jennifer! My favorite holiday tradition started as an adult. With my family not close by, I have to find other ways to celebrate and I’ve been celebrating by spending the day and/or evening of my birthday with friends….a couple of years it has been the casino and another time or two it has been the renaissance faire. It doesn’t matter as long as I spend time with friends – the best gift of all!

  4. Hi Jennifer and Happy Birthday! My fav tradition isn’t really a tradition, since it never caught on with the hubby, but I love giving a small little something each day beginning with the birthday and running through the end of the week. I had some friends do this a few years back on my birthday and I felt so loved. Thanks for the chance to win!

  5. Happy Birthday Jennifer. My fav birthday tradition is having cake with my family. Hope you have a lovely birthday – loved the card.
