Friends Birthday Cards

As I was editing the pictures from my camera, I realized not all of them were from the Magnolia birthday list. So here are some for my church friends and special friends. Enjoy!!

The first two cards were belated birthdays for two friends from church.

Both of these ladies work in the church kitchen making snacks for after church fellowship time in the Cafe'. Maureen is in charge of the kitchen. Janet helped with the baking until she took some time off for a knee replacement.

At this time I don't remember which card went to which lady :-( 

The card base is from Stampin' Up.
The small designer papers are from the stash.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Tilda is colored with Copics.

The background papers might have been from a Stampin' Up pack.

The ribbon was from the stash.

The silverware die cuts were from Magnolia and were cut from silver glimmer paper.

Here is the other card also with a kitchen theme.

The background paper used here if from SU Domestic Goddess.

Tilda with Cowberry Muffin was colored with Copics.

Ribbon from the stash.
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The silverware was the same as the other card.

The next card was for my dear friend Shirley Emerson.  She and I met when we lived in the same town in Pennsylvania.  She is from New Hampshire and was married to a guy who was a neighbor of mine when we were kids.

We had lost contact for many years. She is back in New Hampshire and I'm in New York. One day I was just looking for names on Facebook and I found her.  We have been in touch a bit since then.  It really is a very small world.

Tilda with Love is so pretty in her purple and yellow outfit to match the iris blooms on the designer paper from K&Co's Cottage Garden.

The fence is Magnolia's Spring Fence.

Both images are colored with Copics.

The mounting panel was cut with Spellbinder's Labels Twenty-three.

The pearls were from the stash.

The die cut flowers were from K&Co's Cottage Garden Accents.

The ribbon was from the stash.

 Caroline McKay from church loves Tilda Loves Flowers.  After she opened the card, she was showing everyone!!

Tilda is colored with Copics.
The designer paper is from K&Co's Cottage Garden.

The mouning panel was cut with Spellbinder's Labels Fourteen.

The ribbon is from the stash.

All flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.

 The vine around the sentiment was cut using the Memory Box Twirling Vine Frame die.

I count Norma Lee as a very special friend.  Her cards are absolutely works of art and never cease amaze me.  Her creativity seems to know no bounds.  You can visit her blog here to see for yourself the wonderful things she creates.

Here is the card I created for her.

I used Hello Little Butterfly and Magnolia's Sign images.
They are colored with Copics.

The die cut is from Memory Box's Kensington border.

The card base is SU.

The background paper is from K&Co's Cottage Garden.

The little jewel flower is from my friend Lillian.

The pearls are from the stash.

 This shows the center panel and the last panel.  Norma makes tri-fold cards a lot, so I made her a tri-fold that is just a bit different.

The designer paper is all one long sheet.

The rainbow ribbon was from my stash.  I haven't used it before, but it was perfect for this card.

The sentiment was computer generated.

Here is the full card opened up.
I couldn't get the center panel to open for a flat picture.

Here is a close up of Tilda showing how I tried to color her apron and the butterfly to match the one on the designer paper.

I think it came out close!

That's it for me tonight. Thank  you for staying with me through another long post.

Please leave a note to let me know what you think of these cards.

Hi Kath, each of your cards are delightful! You put a lot of thought into each one. I just know the recipients were delighted to receive their card. Love that flower background - its gorgeous. How particularly thoughtful to make Norma a special card using a fold she often uses. So sweet of you to mention her in your post and give a link to her blog. I agree...she is s very talented gal!

These are all fabulous cards once again, Kathy, but I must admit that the Tilda with Love and the iris paper is my favorite! Of course, daisies are right on top, also. Thanks for sharing your creations and wishing you more crafting time!! Great job, girlfriend !! said...
