Finally a card or two to share....



April and May are busy months for Friends' Birthdays! I bet if your birthday falls in the month of April or May, I'm likely to get along with you real well and be buddies!

Out of more than a dozen cards, I only managed to take a picture of these three - the others were given away and sit in someone's desk drawer or worse yet, in the trash (they better not after they know how much time I put into these cards!) lol

Anyhow, here are the latest funtastic cards....

Actually the third one isn't wanting to load, so I'll post it later...

The Blue card with stars and circles is my BASIC GREY Lime Rickey pad - love the colors and fun patterns! The light blue background is swiss dots cuttlebugged, and there is a Stampin Up Birthday Sentiment on there embossed in white. The button has a little bow of periwinkle ribbon, and the green sashes are ribbon from May Arts.

The "it's a boy!" card is mostly PaperTrey Inc. (Patterned paper and the Ocean tides cardstock - I just love that dusky blue-green color!) Sentiment "Happy for you" is an SU rub on, and the ribbon is actually SU twill layered onto Papertrey twill! The sailboat image is from SU and it was clear embossed on patterned paper and cut out, then applied to the oval on pop dots...it's cute in person! :)

There's been a lot going on in our family the past few weeks...from funerals to weddings to birthdays...it's all happening here! I hope you all are having a nice Spring!! I'm enjoy Seattle's liquid sunshine today...and lots of it!

hugs,
Elaine
