1 Year Anniversary with Aiden

I found this paper pack quite a while ago and I put it aside knowing that this is what I wanted to do with it. The paper pack had paper with bikes - something Aiden and I both enjoy - and a quote from the song You Are My Sunshine - which is "Our Song". All I know when I started was that I wanted those 2 elements in my card and eventually I found something that worked. Most people probably won't notice this, but the cloud paper on the outside is grey and the cloud paper on the inside is blue - showing that with each other grey skies turn to blue (Yes, I know that is cheesy, but I don't care, it's true). Finally, their is the "05.13" which is our anniversary; May 13th.

Aiden's Birthday Card

My guitar playing boyfriend is 17 today. His favourite colours are blue & sea-foam green. There is no definite colour for sea-foam green and I used 2 variations of it for this card. Aiden takes every chance he gets to play his guitar, so I figured it would be appropriate to base his birthday card on that. I printed off a guitar silhouette from the internet and cut it out so I could make everything else go around it. I stamped out the music note pattern and the "Happy Birthday" is in a paper guitar pick. 

For this card, I used:
• CTMH - Glacier & Juniper paper and ick
• CTMH "Happy Birthday" stamp from Holiday Tags Occasions
• "You" & "Rock" I get from a stamp set from
• The music notes and staff stamp was from a different stamp set from
