Cards for Eileen

I have been a busy, busy bee making cards! My old piano teacher (whom I adore, still) requested that I make her some cards (birthday and anniversary) to use. The two from the previous post are for her, and all five (yes, five) cards in this post are for her. I made/collected (from my stash) 10 cards for her, and now I'm ready to send them in the mail.The first one is a kid's birthday card. I'm not sure I like how it turned out, but a kid would probably love it. I know Michelle thought the pony and cow were "awesome" (yes, she says that).

Up next is another birthday card. The coloring and lighting on this card is poor; it's a very cute masculine card IRL. I used my Loads of Love set, which I love. Stampin' Up just came out with a new addition to this set with things that you can pull, and I can't wait to get it! I paper pieced the pickup and colored in a few spots, too. The quote says, "Driving by with a birthday hi."

Next card is an anniversary card. The "Smile" sentiment came from Verve's Circular Sayings, but I received it as a "thank you" for ordering from Verve one time (She is so great about that!).

Another anniversary card. I used the poppin pastels method for my flowers (I haven't used that for a long time!)

Finally, my absolute favorite of the bunch. This is another anniversary card. I've been hoarding this beautiful Bella Rose paper--it's my last full sheet, and the paper is now retired. I finally cut it up to use it, and I love how elegant and gorgeous this card turned out! I even broke out my sewing kit and sewed two buttons onto the ribbon!

All the ingredients for each card are listed below my signature. Have a happy Thursday!
