Three Birthday Cards and a Book

It feels like forever since I’ve done anything to post. Before I know it another week has passed and I’ve accomplished nothing. June has three birthdays one right after the other in the first week. So I had fun doing three completely different cards. Each one for what I thought they would like.                                            The first card was for my sister. She loves robins and can’t wait for Spring when they come back. Tammy Tutterow had a tutorial on a speckled egg background. Perfect! I had my eye on another of her tutorials and it was perfect for this card also.

The next card is my other sisters birthday card. Deb loves Gerber Daisies so I used Memory Box “Glorious Gerber Daisies” die. I learned this technique from Annette a friend from Iowa when we lived there. I have to say it took me quite awhile to do this card. There were a lot of pieces to assemble!

I didn’t have the Papertrey Ink linen impression plate for the background so I quick ordered it but it didn’t arrive in time for this card. Will definitely do this technique again. Yes, Linda, I couldn’t make three cards and not have any orange on them. 🙂                                                                                                                                    The third card was for Linda another friend from Iowa. I also made a faux Midori book for her.

Linda is a Tim Holtz fan so I found this idea here. I made a card instead of a recipe box. I used Memory Box “Ariel & Lunette butterfly” dies for the butterflies.  I had a lot of fun making this card. Here is a side view.

Here is the faux Midori book.

Over Memorial Weekend we went to Bismarck. On our way home Monday we saw our first moose. We were so excited. People have been seeing them in the city but we haven’t seen them. Happy to finally see one. They are HUGE!

Thanks for visiting and leaving some love. It’s always appreciated.
