Last Birthday Cards for May!

Whew!  That was a crunch of crafting.  May is a very card heavy month.  Bam, bam, and a final bam.  Hi everyone!  It's Saturday and I have the last of the birthday cards to share with you today.  I have used the incredible ScrappyDew file called Garden Girl 2015.  But first the lyrics...

~ScrappyDew Garden Girl 2015
~Recollections scraps
~Silver Bullet 24" Pro
~Sure Cuts A Lot v4.044
~Recollections Sparkles paper
~Card base Canvas Corp. Choc. & Kraft mini dot
~Happy birthday stamp by Inkadinkdo
~AlmaLynne (Inkadinkado) Flower Pot and Watering Can stamps
~Envelope & Gypsies Spitafields

I have used this image for May birthdays quite a lot.  Very easy to put together.  I used as an embellishment seed packets that I have received in the mail.  Probably to old to sprout.
So this is what I dreamed up.

A card for Dolores!

A card for Auntie Kathy!

Even got in a little bit of coloring!

I've taken to decorating the envelopes also.

Both together!

The card base is the flower pot she has in her hand but really blown up.  Duplicate it and weld and you have a very unusual card base.  These two cards went over fantastic.  I guess that is why I keep coming back to the Garden Girl 2015 file!!!

Now I have a graduation card for the gal across the street for my next post in 2 weeks.  Are you all gardening?  That is what is taking my time and energy.  Instant gratification!!!

Bright Blessings, Jana

Welcome Little One!

I've lived in this neighborhood for just over 14 years.  I have seen the youngest children now graduating from high school, and some neighbors have passed on.  But new blood and life is percolating in this small universe.  We have my little neighbor boys that I spoil.  Now a new little one has made her presence know.

Welcome to my Saturday Post for the wonderful ScrappyDew Digital Cutting Files.  A new baby card is always fun to make.  But I finally got to use pinks for this little girl.  She took her time getting here.  But first the lyrics...

~ScrappyDew Digital cut file "Baby Girl Crawling"
~Scrap Factory hair "johnny"
~CTMH Baby girl kit (1990's)
~TPC Sweet Beginnings Stickers
~DejaViews My Sweet Girl printed vellum
~Penny Duncan Creations leaf branch
~Small white flower stock from $1 store
~Mark Richards Baby Rattle Sticker
~Silver Bullet 24" Pro cutter
~SCAL V4.044
~didn't use the kitchen sink this time around

I have to admit, if I was doing another card like this, I would make the baby smaller.  It just looks to big for the card base.  Otherwise, didn't have a bit of trouble putting this one together.  So here she is...

See What I mean about proportion...

The inside

The back


She really enjoyed it.  Miss Zoey finally arrived May 12, 2016.  She was a week late.  Mom and baby are great.

So that's it for this week.  See you on May 28, 2016.  Bright blessings, Jana
