Birthday Cards in the Mail



Thought I'd share a few of the handmade cards I received for my birthday in addition to the one from my DH. This beauty is from my friend, Marybeth. I didn't measure it but I think it's about 8" high. I love the chipboard flowers and the beautifully colored image. I think she used some kind of tissue paper for the checked background.

The next card is from Janet. I just love the sweet cupcakes and the sparkly DP she used!



This one is from Karen. She used a Cuttlebugged birthday cake image as her focal point, vellum for the sentiment and threaded the ribbon through eyelets. Love that happy DP, too!






And finally, a gorgeous card from my dear friend, Patty. I love the Swiss dot background, the happy colors, her ribbon treatment, the pearls in the center of the flowers. It's just beautiful.


I still have a few shadows as I'm learning to use my new Photo Box to take my pictures. I'm using my Ott lights instead of the lights they sell with some of them because I read those are not strong enough. Got mine on ebay for 19.99 and free (fast!) shipping.


Thanks for stopping by!


Blessings and Happy Stamping,


Charlene
