Birthday Cake Card

I made this cut out card for my friend's birthday...I will be giving it to her today and I hope she likes it...She loves purple so I used that as the main color...I added Prima flowers and ribbon lace that reminds me of piping that they put around cakes...I also punched out the butterflies in different colors and then I glittered each one with Stickles Diamond Glitter Glue...The sparkle is so pretty and I love the Martha Stewart punches...  I added lots of pearls and stamped the "Happy Birthday"....Inside it says, "Wishing You a Day Filled With Good Things."

I'm not sure what I will be working on next...I may do the butterfly lottery at ArtHaven and I have a couple of birthday cards to do, too...I'm waiting for some inspiration to hit me... I hope you are all having a good day and thanks for dropping by...You make me smile....Kathy

Another Hat Card

I made another hat card for a friend and for this one I wanted a fresh and springy look so I chose the pretty floral paper, by American Crafts, for the brim and paired it with the softer, pink patterned paper, by Little Yellow Bicycle, for the crown..I added the floral, white lace, a big and bright pink, Prima flower and ribbon tails with tiny, cream colored flowers attached...Inside I stamped "Wishing You Blue Skies and Sunny Days," in a dark pink ink...

I love making these cut out cards..Next I am making a 3 tier birthday cake card...Hope to show you that soon..Wishing you a wonderful Sunday afternoon..It's raining here and a good day to do art...Thank you for visiting my blog...I love your comments...Kathy

Quote Card w/Matching Envie

One of the April swaps in my Arthaven art group was to make a card with a quote and matching envelope...Well, I cheated just a bit and added 2 flowers, but that's okay...I love this quote by Picasso and wanted to make a card that was pretty and artsy at the same time...I stamped the quote on a blank label, added the paper flowers, pink pearls and for a little sparkle, the pink gemstones...On the bottom is a strip of creamed colored, crocheted lace and for the artsy part I added the stick on tubes of acrylic paint...I like the way it blends together with the swap theme and the quote...

For the matching envelope I added a blank label to the front, just like the one on the card and a return address label with a cute little bee on it...The back of the envie has the flap in the matching polka dot paper that is on the card...I also added two roses to pretty it up...

So, now I am off to make a birthday card and a get well card for friends...I hope to join in on the ArtHaven May lottery, too...The theme is butterflies...Should be fun...

Thank you all, once again, for visiting my blog and for all your kind comments...I so appreciate it...Hope to see you again soon..........Kathy
