July Birthdays, Layout and... A Commissioned Card!

July Birthdays:
     Both of my nieces have birthdays in July.  Aubri's is the 20th and Tori's is the 24th.  And my friend, Abi, had one on the 23rd.  The girls got their quilts mailed to them along with the cards I made for their birthday's.  Here are the cards:

Aubri, 3rd Birthday:  I love the way this turned out.  The layers are great and the paper was just so funky!

Tori, 6th Birthday: Took a bit of effort to get this cupcake done.  Probably would have been easier if I had a template or a cricut cartridge with one on it, but no, this was all me.

Abi :  I used the same kind of layering that I did with Aubri's card.  And the flower was one made from the previous posts.  I love the way the flower turned out!

This layout was made using papers from My Scrapbook Nook.  The photo was taken of Caylie and Tori at my mother's wedding back in October of 2009.  Those two girls don't miss any opportunity to be together and truly love one another.

And finally, I was asked to make a card for Abi's grandmother for her 100th birthday.  I tried to make the card look as elegantly vintage as possible.  I like the design I ended up with.  I also made the envelope.  That was my first try at an envelope that I couldn't do with the help of my cricut.  I'm happily surprised at the end result and hope they're happy with it too.

      Well that does it for now.  I'll post more when it gets done.  Cheers!
