Fun Cards!

I'm almost caught up with the older birthday cards to post.  Yeah!!
Due to Kodak Easy Share "eating" some of my pictures, I don't have all of the newer cards, but I have some of them.

The first one to share with you features Dangling Tilda.

 The paper is from K&Company's Handmade tablet.  I tried to have Tilda hang from one of the circles, but it didn't work out the way I saw it "in my head".  So she got hung from the ribbon instead!

Tilda was colored with Copics.
The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The ribbon from my stash.
The butterfly was a gift from my friend Lillian.
This card went to Crystal Thomas.
 The center features the swing from Magnolia's Swing stamp without the tree branch part.  The circle was cut with Nestabilities Scalloped Circle dies.
The sentiment panel was cut using Deckled Rectangles.
The sentiments were computer generated.

Ballerina Tilda is showcased on DCWV's Primrose paper trimmed out with a piece of pale turquoise wide lace from my stash.
The flower in the upper corner was a Melissa Francis design that I got from someone's Etsy shop a long time ago.

The die cut is Magnolia's My Love Heart.
The tiny roses and leaves were from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Tilda was colored with Copics.

All the papers used on the inside were from the The Primrose tablet.
The Happy Birthday stamp was from Stampin' Up!

This card went to Jody Blaufus.

 Princess Tilda looks very regal as she posed on a Marianne Designs Creatables oval.

Tilda was colored with Copics. 
The pearls were from my stash.
The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.The papers were from K&Company's Blue Awning tablet.
 The glitter on the paper is very glittery in real life, but doesn't show up very well in the picture.

The sentiment panel was cut using a Joy! Craft die.
The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The sentiment was computer generated.

This card went to Karen Gauthier.

My nephew, Nate's birthday was in June.  I had intended to take his card with me to our Family Reunion in early July.  However, I didn't make it this year.  His card was a fun never ending card.  This is the third one I've made and they get easier every time!

Here is the front - Face 1.

This is the front of the card.
Mini Cool Edwin is mounted on a petite oval panel cut using Nestabilities Petite Scalloped Ovals.

The Sweet Christmas Present looks very much a birthday gift colored in non- Christmas colors.

 All of the papers were from my stash.

Face 2 results when opening Face 1 by turning the panels to the sides.

Mini Hiking Background and mini Moose provide a peaceful camping scene.

Mini Burger Tilda and Barbecue Riley the Moose create a cool picnic scene when mounted on watermelon paper.
The sentiments were computer generated with lots of trial and error to get the placement exactly where I wanted it. Tee Hee!!

Top and bottom panels for Face 2 flip up and down respectively to reveal Face 3.
You'll notice that the side panels from Face 2 also show in Face 3.

Mini Edwin in Miami is mounted on seashell paper from my friend Lillian.

Mini Hiking Edwin is mounted on paper from the stash.

Face 3 panels are flipped to the sides to reveal Face 4.

The papers are from the stash.
The swirl stamp was from an Autumn Leaves set by Rhonna Farrer called Swirls V:I.

Mini Edwin Wants a Hug stands behind his brand new car (Tilda's Summer Car stamp)!
The top section is left blank for a hand written note.

My May Mingle card went to Myra Webb.

Tilda with Cross Necklace is mounted on offset Deckled Rectangles which were cut with Nestabilities dies.

All the embellishments were from my stash.
The flowers were from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Of course it was an easel card!!

The sentiments were computer generated on offset Deckled Rectangles.
More flowers were added to dress it up a bit.

Thank you for staying with me through a long post.  Have a wonderful day!

Wow, now I can see where your "time" is going to, Kathy! These are all fabulous cards and I can see all the love that was put into them -- your flower bouquets are lovely, your coloring is great and these creations got put together perfectly. No reason as to why anyone would not be thrilled to get one of these masterpieces!! Keep it up - and you should enter these into some challenges.
