Birthday cards gone postal!

I have been so busy getting all the fall canning and freezing done that I haven't posted the BRAK cards I've sent out.  So -- here they are--
The first one went to Sylvia Lokhoff.  I know she received hers by the Thank You she posted!

I really like the Sweet Tilda stamp.
Copics used were
Dress - G09, 05, 03, 00
Shoes - E00, 0000, 43, Crystal Effects
Hair - Y11, 21, E97, 99

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The beads are Prima Say It With Pearls.
The dp are My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus.  The wide lace from my stash.  I really love the way this card turned out!

This one is for Gayna Hurst! 

I used another Kleenex box for the beautiful rose and swirls background. 
I colored New Year Tilda quite a while ago and have no idea what purple Copics I used. 
The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.
The ribbon behind the flowers is from Wal Mart.
The sentiment panel is cut using Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy Tags.  The rhinestone flowers are from Michaels.

Here's another Kleenex box background for Vicki Parson.

Flower Girl Tilda was colored with Copics, of course!
Dress, socks, lace - B26, 24, 21, blender pen
Shoes - E40, 42, 44, Crystal Effects
Hair - E35, 31, YR20
Flowers - YG67, 63, B39, 37, 34 and Sweet Pea and Shamrock Green Flower Soft
Wings - Star Dust Stickles

Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts & Magnolia; ribbon from Wal Mart; Diamond Stickles are on the swirls; Wheat chandelier beads from AC Moore; Leaves punched with MS Branch punch.

These two cards used the same Kleenex box design in different colors and made two very different cards.

Then as the weather turned much colder in our area, I got into a very fallish mood.  Sharon Lemon's card reflects that mood perfectly.
What better way to celebrate fall than with A-P-P-L-E-S!

Apple Pie Tilda is perfect for this card! She has her basket of fresh picked apples just waiting for Apple Crisp or maybe Applesauce or perhaps another Apple Pie! YUM YUM!! 
The cute little hearthside kitty stands up. Can't you just hear him/her purring!?!

The perfect apple background paper is from my stash. 
Tilda's Table is dressed in a paper pieced tablecloth with two rose bud stems waiting for a vase.
The table is colored with E39, 37, 34, 33, R000 (lace)
Apple basket - E29, 25, 55, R24, 22, 20, YG00, 03, E37, G09.
Kitty is resting on a 3-layer rug cut with Nesties.  Kitty's colors are E37, 35, YR14, 12
Apple pie - C4, 5, E50, 31, 34, 35
Tilda's outfit - R17, 14, BG10, R00, 01, 17, E44, Crystal Effects on shoes; her wings are Star Dust Stickles.
Her hair is E49, 59, 25, 53.  There! I think I got all the colors.  My work space was covered with Copics when I finished coloring these little gals!
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Magnolia.

I hope you all have enjoyed seeing the latest cards and will stop back often.  I promise there will be many more coming up!

Wow, Kathy! You've been super busy. You have a gift in arranging the flowers in bunches. (Not as easy as it seems). Love that the cards are all different colors and all beautifully executed. Nice job. Keep them coming.
Wednesday Blessings to you~

These are all so gorgeous. I love the dp's you've used - how elegant they are. On the first card the lace is a perfect match. I love the Blue flowers on the other card and the red card is just outstanding! You've been a very busy lady!
