The Canoes

My niece has twin boys, they live in the US, but in the summer the family spends time at their cottage on the lake in Ontario, Canada.  It was their birthday this week and these are the cards I made for them.
I always do Ryan's card with mostly red and Nathan usually gets blue or green.

I purchased the images from The Scrapbook Stamp Society but the artist is from Digi Doodles.

I flipped the image to get one on the right and one on the left, but they would not go side by side.

I used copics to color the image.  The sentiment is from Netty's Cards.  I added the string to the sentiment and to the bottom of the card.  Kept it fairly simple.

Birds and Summer

Another wonderful image from Sassy Cheryl.

And the inside says - Bird Chirping weather.  Sentiment shown in Sassy Cheryl's shop, but computer generated.  The image is colored with copics.  The die cut is from Spellbinders.  The DP is from K & Company.   The butterfly, the double flowers and the the bird are from my stash.

This image is from Sassy Studio Design named Miranda Sassy. Pretty isn't she!

Wow, I always seem to get the lace or ribbon on the bottom of my card crooked - will have to find a way to improve on that.  Image colored with copics - dress and shoes paper pieced.  Oval is a die cut from Nellies Frames with pink pearls added from my stash.  The DP is from Paper Pizzaz, the circle swirl piece and the lace are from my stash.

Mothers day weekend coming right up and I am going to spend Sunday morning golfing with several of my friends.  One of the local golf courses offers free golf to mothers on Mothers day!  Hope it turns out to be a sunny day.  It is suppose to rain here to-day.

Another grandaughter's birthday so the search for the perfect image for her took me to Digistamps 4 Joy and the talented artist JenLee.  The image Misteri seemed the right choice for her card.

I have colored her with copics.  The Designer Paper and the Sentiment are from Theresa Collins.  The flowers and the narrow ribbon are from my stash.

Wow, we are having wonderful weather here - everyone is out working in their gardens, or sitting on their porches in the sun.  Hope it stays like this for a while I am golfing in the morning!

The Purple Dragon

It's always such fun to make a child's Birthday Card, especially when it is for your youngest grandson!

This happy purple dragon walking through the rain is a digital image from Sweet Pea, the artist is Lisa Victoria.  I have colored him with copics.  Used regular colored cardstock to frame the image, and Cut out curved pieces to add some color behind him.  The sentiment is stickers from my scrapbook stash.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
