Have A Sweet Birthday card by designer Deborah Nolan

Welcome back to the Hampton Art blog!
Hi, it’s Deborah here with a Sweet 16 birthday card, but feel free to mix it up to accommodate just about ANY birthday or an anniversary. All you have to do is color the necessary numbers and add a sentiment, or a die cut, etc. to suit the occasion.

Don’t forget, there are more than birthdays and wedding anniversaries to celebrate! Other memorable accomplishments include the number of years a person has been cancer-free, worked at a job, been a member of an organization, been alcohol- or tobacco-free, etc. You can also use numbers to mark a reached goal, like the number of pounds lost, miles run, or school years completed.
