A few Birthday Cards

Good Afternoon and Happy Saturday!  I want to send a warm welcome to all my new followers and of course to all of you who drop by and follow me here.  I read and love all your wonderful comments.  Thank You!

OK, Now for 2 birthday cards I made earlier this week.  The 1st one up is one for my nieces 15th birthday. She loves turtles and her fave color is yellow, so this is what I came up with:

And here's the inside too:
 Made this cad with the turtl digi I had in my files but unfortunately i failed to name who I got it from, sorry.  Colored it with Copics and fussy cut it out.  Added tiny white bow to top of presents, form Wal-mart.   Flowers are from Recollections.  Used  cuttle bug embossing folder, b/c I thought it kind of looked like the turtle's shell.  The green enamel dots are recollections also.  The die cut is from Spellbinders that I had for ages.  I used the cut out from the die cut to make a yellow space to match the front and stamped sentiment from Anna Griffin in blue.  Also stamped yellow tiny flower in corner also from Anna Griffin.  And that's it.....

I also made a birthday card for a dear friend, who loves to get handmade cards, Maria E.  She loves Stargazer Lilies, Shoes and the color purple, we both like all of theses actually!  So I made this card for her this year:                                            

OK, here I used another Spellbinder Die and the shoe die is from Top Dog Dies.  The flowers are from a Google search for lilies coloring pages.  It was a quixcke card but I really like the end product.  Hope you all do too.

Until next time,

Pocket Card

Morning everyone.  I had to make a card for my card groups weekly challenge this week and the idea was to make a shaped card of a thing, not just a square or circle.  It actually had to be something.  So I have been wanting to try my hand at a pocket card. And so I decided on a flower pot pocket card.  I am very happy with the out come.  There are so many tutorials out there for this type of card.  I watched several and then just made this one from memory.  I did not add a sentiment yet, because I am not sure who the receiver will be.  Here is a link to one tutorial that was the easiest for me to follow:  Steph's Paper Crafting.
