Class Cards and JP's Birthday Card

Hi there everyone....I think it is finally Spring. According to the weather forecaster on my computer, for the next 10 days the temps will be in the 70's. Now that is perfect weather to me. Spring like and not too hot. Gosh, I sure do hope my air conditioner works this year, I may have to think about getting a new one for sure. But I will cross that bridge when I get to it....not sense running towards it if I don't have to run.......
So following are 4 cards I made at Betty's card class yesterday......the top one, as you can see is a bride and groom.....very simple and easy to put together.
The tulip card was fun to do. Stamped the tulips on black card stock with white ink. Then colored with colored pencils.....very relaxing, now I know why those adult coloring books are so popular now a days. Just gabbing and coloring can sure relax the mind.
This little birdie was told it was your birthday.....a simple card and fun to put together. We cut the tree in half then added the black and green strips that were punched out with a border punch. Betty had the bird cut out for us, so we just had to glue dot him in place.
I love this card and those two was fun coloring them. The inside verse says "Oh nuts, I forgot your birthday" The two nuts were colored in with copic markers then layered on a die cut frame and printed paper. I shall have to look for these two nuts at the different sites I visit.
Now here is a card I made for JP for his birthday. I thought he would really like this one. I got the stamps and folder from one of those magazines that come from the UK.
Here is the inside of the card....don't you just love this card. It did take a long time to put this card together and I made 5 of them. So I actually spent a whole evening on these cards. One already went to Kylie's groomer for her birthday, JP got one and another one is going to a friend. Two more left.

Well, time to close this quickie post and go walk Kylie. Hopefully I can get up the energy to do that. I wanted to work outside, but for some reason....the motivation was not there....Oh now I understand that saying and how true...."the mind is willing but the body isn't."

Note: After Kylie's walk, I did work outside for about 1/2 hour, raking leaves and moving them to under the tree. I moved the swing a bit, turned on the water fountain and sat on the swing with Kylie for awhile....I think a mosquito found me. Well, I am armed with Vicks Vapor Rub, which I did not have any on. I read that Vicks keeps the mosquitoes away.....we shall see.

Have a great day and keep looking up, better days are coming.
Cheers ~ Louise

Wishing JP a happy birthday and I hope it's a great day for him. Your cards are great, I love the "nuts" one. Isn't it nice to be able to work outside for a change. It will be 70 here today and maybe winter is over! You are right about my card being an adult coloring page. That's exactly what it looks like.

Happy belated birthday to JP! I love the card you made for him - so clever! I don't like that it's been in the mid 80s already, I miss the 70 degree weather this time of year :D
