Two More Birthday Cards

My oldest daughter is a Francophile and she and my son-in-law spend 3 to 4 weeks each year in France although this year they are going to Italy (gasp, gasp). I made her birthday card a very French one. The frame is from Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur de Lis square die, the Eiffel Tower is from Cricut cartridge French Manor I believe, and the roses are from Emma My Creative Time's flower die. Daughter loved it.
For my sister's birthday card I used Sizzix Framelits Fleur De Lis die which is absolutely beautiful cutting not just 1 but 3 frames at the same time and the tags and sentiment are from Emma's My Creative Time. So now I am in the middle of cleaning up and reorganizing my craft room so I can be more organized.

Some Cards I've Done Lately

This card was for a brother-in-law who is very ill. Used Emma's My Creative Time balloon die along with her cloud die. The sentiment is also from her stamps.
This card is for one of my grandson's birthday. The clock is from Peachy Keen Stamps as well as the inside sentiment. Stamped the clock, colored it with Copic Markers and cut it out. The face is also a stamp in the same stamp set.
Made this card for my daughter-in-law for her birthday. Used Emma My Creative Time's balloon and clouds from "Fly Away With Me Dies" and cut out the houses from some scrapbooking paper. I think this addition was just what I needed on the rolling green hills.

Birthay Card

I had done a birthay card for a lady's daughter for her birthday that featured 3 monkeys so she asked me to make one for her BFF- there are 3 friends and she and one of her other BFF's like monkeys while the BD lady loves penquins so this is the card I made.
The monkeys are from Cricuit's Create A Critter cartridge while the penquin is from Winter Frolic cartridge. The balloons are from Imagine cartridge Best Friends and the cake from Imagine cartridge Yummy.

Oldest Son's BD Card

My oldest son is a contractor so this is what I did for his BD card. Used Everyday Paper Dolls Cricuit cartridge.

Took a card class at Helene's Scrapbooking store last week and we made ten cards which I COMPLETED during the class, a first for me. Usually I have to finish some at home or go into the store and work on them there. Here are five of them - the class was French Country.

Graduation Book

Well it was Graduation Night yesterday for my second oldest grandson and I had to make him a Graduation Book like the one I did for my eldest grandson. Used a lot of Emma "My Creative Time" stamps and dies. They are so much fun to make and bring back lots of memories. Congratulations to Jordan, love all my grandsons to death.

Birthday Cards For My Twins

Now that my youngest children celebrated their birthays (can't believe it was their 42nd one) I can post the cards I created for them. This is my son's card. A tri-fold card using a Jolee's sticker plus Emma My Creative Times die and stamp.
My daughter's card is based on a card done by Mandi on her webside "having a mandi moment" and was lots of fun to make.

Birthday Cards

My daughter-in-law's birthday card: The gate and fence opens up.
The inside of the card features My Creative Time's gift card die.
This card was done for my son-in-laws birthday last month. He loves his coffee. I used the die from My Creative Time for all cup, background stamp and the sayings are from her sets: Coffee Break an You Are PerFect.
