I did another card last night to give to a little girl named Adrianna.  I had given her some of my old pattern paper that I had for sometime to just use as she would like... and I have heard from her Grandma that she loves playing with it.  I also had sent her Grandma a birthday last year and that child plays with the card just about everytime she goes to her Grandma house.  Adrianna sent me a thank you card that she had made so I thought I would just send her a card.

Hi everyone,
I wanted to make a card for a challenge the theme is Sound Of Music so one of my favorite songs is Livin' On Love by Alan Jackson.  My hubby and I both pick this one as a favorite.  So we do have our anniversary coming up in the fall... so I thought of doing a card for my  hubby with Livin' On Love on it...It is so nice to have cards done ahead of time so you don't have to make your brain work so hard and fast at the same time... :)  I also love adding my cards to other challenges.  So here is my card.

I made this card for my bother-in-law today his birthday is this weekend and he will be 74 years old.  I sort of struggle a bit with the masculine cards for some reason... I guess it is because I like the ribbons and bows!!!  But if I would do a few at  a time I think it would go a bit better because once I started working on this card it seemed a lot of ideas popped in to my mind.  On the outside of this card it states "The car is Vintage" and on the inside of the card I put "You are Antique!   Happy Birthday and many more!"

PURPLE ROSE MOTHER'S DAY CARD                                                                 

Hello everyone, 
Mother's day is just around the corner so I decide to make a card for my granddaughter to give to her Mom... It will be ready for when she will ask for it... :)  I did the outside so it will be ready for her to put what she wants inside.  Oh I can hear her now ... asking for a 2nd Mother's day card for her boyfriend's mother.  But that is wonderful because I love making cards.   The purple rose Mother's day card was made with the spellbinder's dies...even the roses and the other flower were made with spellbinder's dies.  I just love spellbinder's dies!!!  Can't you tell? Now that  this card is done I need to do 3 more cards for the other 3 grandchildren so they can have a card to give.   I wonder since the youngest is 6 years old and a boy if it would be ok to make a card with a car on it for Mother's day??? I think that would be what he would want to do.  Oh I think I will put some things in a box and give to them so they can all make their own cards. 
If my Mom was still here on this earth I would send her a card just like this one because she loved roses.  Miss her a bunch!!!

Spellbinder's dies:  Shapeabilities Persian Accents, Rose Creations and one of the Edgeabilites classic insert.

COWGIRL BIRTHDAY CARD                                                                                     

I think this little cowgirl is one of the cutest little girls in town... she is a digital stamp from The PAPER SHELTER.  I have a granddaughter that loves horses so I thought this would be great card for her.  Her birthday isn't until September.... So I  can put her name on the list of the cards that are done!  I need to get busy and make about 5 guy cards ... there are 3 guy birthdays in May... that includes our Great grandson's, son's and my Brother-in-law's.

On this card I also used 3 spellbinder dies.
