August Birthday Cards

I am hoping that by now everyone has received their August birthday cards. So let's get right to it and have a look at those pictures!!

The images used on all of the following cards were colored with Copics. Most of the flowers came from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The ribbons were all from my stash.  The card bases are all Stampin' Up cardstock.  The designer papers came from several sources in my stash.

The first one went to Shirley Wilson.

Tilda with Big Ice Cream was so fun to work up.  It brings back lots of fun summer memories.The Ice Cream Stand needed the Happy Birthday banner on top to make Tilda feel really special.  The ice cream cone sticker was from my friend Lillian.

Here's a close-up of the stand.  I put glossy accents over the counter part of the stand.  I tied the banner to the top knobs of the canopy to make it look like a floating banner.  The banner is Magnolia.
I hope you had a great day, Shirley!

It doesn't matter where you live.  If you want a birthday card, be sure to sign up at the Magnolia Yahoo Group Home page.

The next card went to Renate Landgraf in Germany.

Renate's card is the same as Shirley's except I used green for the color scheme.
Happy Birthday, Renate!  The background paper was from my friend Lillian.

Next card coming up went to Shana Tackett and features Piping Tilda and Little Rose Cake.  That little cake was the perfect size to go with Tilda's icing bag.

Shana got a peek into Tilda's kitchen as she put the finishing touches on Shana's birthday cake.  That cake sure looks yummy!  Happy Birthday, Shana!

Tilda is strutting her stuff showing off her special cake for Marjorie Lindleu.  Looks a little like it might be a strawberry flavor.  The background paper came from Lillian.

I hope your birthday was very special, Marjorie!

The last card for this post went to Madge Haycock. Love, love, love Tilda is a real sweetheart.

 Tilda colored up so quickly.  The bottom of the card is edged with Tilda Lace die cut.
Aren't those heart shaped chandelier beads just too cute!?!  The heart covered paper was a perfect compliment to the hearts Tilda is throwing.  This paper came from my friend Lillian.

I hope your birthday was wonderful and you enjoyed the day, Madge!

Thanks for stopping by and having a look at the birthday cards I made for all these wonderful ladies.
