May Birthday Cards

A big hello to everyone.  The weather here has been so changeable.  Saturday and Sunday (Memorial Day) were so cold the furnace was running, the heat lamp for the garage kitties was turned back on, my winter nightie was pulled back out and I wore my  winter coat to go shopping.  Sunday our church had our annual pig roast (sort of).  It was very windy and chilly so many of the attendees sat inside to eat.  Monday was sunny and rather warm getting into the 60's.  Today is rainy and chilly again.

Now that the birthday girls have posted thank yous for their cards I sent, I can post pictures of them for all to enjoy.
Study Tilda sitting on her picnic quilt reading her book was very fun to color with my Copics.  Offsetting the layers seems to be the answer to uneven margins around the pieces.
The circles background paper came from My Mind's Eye Simply Delightful stack.  The paper with the numbers was from DCWV Kids 4.5 x 6.5 stack.
The cardstock was Stampin' Up Cherry Cobbler and Prismatic Sunflowers.  I sponged the lighter Prismatic paper to breakup the solid color a bit.

The ribbon was a gift from an SBS22 sister (Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers group 22).  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Hooked on Crafts.

The die cuts, Spellbinders Labels Two, were popped up on dimensionals, as was Tilda and the quilt.
Here is Study Tilda open.  Happy Birthday, Lisa Whittemore!!

Tilda with Daffodil is too cute.  Imagine a daffodil as big as she is and it looks a little heavy as Tilda is struggling to hold it up!

Tilda was colored with Copics and mounted on a Crumb Cake oval with dimensionals.
The background papers were from Magnolia Love Collection, Stampin' Up Tempting Turquoise and Crumb Cake.
The oval Tilda is on was cut using Spellbinders Ovals.  The daffodils and leaves were from Hooked on Crafts.  The ribbon was from the stash.
Here is the inside of the card - no easel this time :-(
The ovals were cut with Spellbinders dies Scalloped Ovals and Classic Ovals.
Happy Birthday Aida Gonzalez!!

Wishes for a great day go out to all of you.  Thank you for stopping by and looking at the latest birthday cards.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the May birthday cards.

Wonderful birthday cards and I'll bet they were so happy to receive them. The weather here in MD has been crazy, too. It was in the low 60s last weekend and it's 92 degrees today. Craziness!

Both cards are cute - and wow, daffodils to match Tilda's daffodil. I'm sure both recipients must have loved getting these in their mailbox for their most special day! Hope your weather improves and acts more like summer . . .
