Lots of Birthday Cards

January through April are the peak months for my family to have birthdays.  At least it seems that way!  I had six birthday cards that were late or very late due to my being away much of the winter.  Last week I managed to get four of them in the mail - three to the same family.
 The first one was for my precious daughter-in-law.  She is such a joy!  She lives in Georgia, but I sure wish she was closer.
Here is Tilda with her Bunny.  The papers are from Magnolia, flowers from Magnolia and Wild Orchid Crafts.
Copics used for coloring are -
R81,83, 85  E30,33, 35  YR20,21,23  W2 ,4, 5, 7
C2  Hair E25, 49, 53, 59
All skin in all cards are E000, 00, 11 and R21
The Magnolia Tag is perfect for this neat sentiment from a birthday sentiments pack.

 My grandson Jeremy turned 16 this February.  Where has the time gone?
I used the Magnolia Sea Background, Sea Banner and the Howser on the inside.  This adorable little aviator is from Penny Black and was a "miss you" gift from my friend Roxy. 

The Copic colors used on this card _
G24, 21, 20, 82,  R11, 17, 14, 12, 20, 000, 46,   Y08, 02, 11, 26, 21,  000  C0, 3,  W0,
E01, 00, 13, 17, 37, 43, 42, 41, 30,
B95, 93, 91, 0000, 24,  BG10,  BV20,  

The inside was very simple.

This was my son's card.  They really aren't into boating, but these just seemed like really great cards for guys.

These image are all from the Bon Voyage collection.  The eyeltes, pearls and ribbon lace are from my stash.  Stickles cover the tops of the waves.
The Copics I used for this Sea Background  are BG000,   B91, 93, 97, 99,   C1, 4
E25, 21, 27, 29, 50, 51
Edwin Copics - E000, 00, 11, 29, 25, 31
R20, 17,  Y19,  C0, 1, 2, 5
The sentiments were stamped in Chocolate Chip SU ink.  The DPs were all from my stash.  The sea shells were from a K&Company stick-on assortment.

These three cards all went to the same family.  It was a real feeling of accomplishment to pack them up and get them mailed!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please take a minute to leave a little Maggie love in a comment.

These are great...I can't decide which I like best! I think the first one, then I take a look at Edwin by that porthole and think that one, then I look closer at the second one and think that one! Oh well, guess that means they're all wonderful!!!!
