My Last Birthday Card for Tonight....

Okay, this is it for tonight. I haven't had a whole lot of time on my computer lately. I have been letting other family members use it to play Minecraft. This is why I have a lot of posts for tonight. I wanted to post some during last week, but I never had my computer for long enough. :)

This last card was made for my sister. I used another one of my new LOTV stamps. The bunny is soooo cute! The paper is actually from some of my Christmas paper, but I liked the colours (suits my sister).
I know the photo isn't the greatest. It was late at night and the best light was from my range.

Well, that's it for me tonight. Have a good evening.

Another Birthday Card

The next card I made was for my sister-in-law. She likes cats, so I thought I would use my cute Penny Black stamp.

One of several Birthday Cards

On the weekend, my family celebrated 4 birthdays. I was busy making cards last week. I will make a separate post for each card so I can enter them in a few challenges.
My first card is for my niece. A while back I won a copy of Card Ideas for Paper Crafters. While looking for inspiration I found a beautiful card (can't remember the page right now, sorry.) I altered it slightly - added a second butterfly.

LOTV Adorable Stamp

The other week, I won a fabulous prize at The Ribbon Girl .  I received some beautiful ribbons, lace, buttons and flowers, as well as a gift certificate for Lili of the Valley.  I purchased some adorable stamps. I was so excited when all my prizes came in on the same day!

I bought three stamps with the gift certificate. I love the elephant one and had to make a card with it right away.

Animal Birthday

The Simon Says Stamp Challenge is currently Animal Antics. I needed to make a masculine birthday card, so I used Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Forest stamp set. I was inspired by Gingerbread-Gal's card here (it is the 6th card down.) I liked her design and background, but I wanted to add a few more images to the scene. I paper-pieced everything on the card. I find it easier than masking images.

Sorry about the dull colours - it was another overcast day. -sigh-
