Here is a collection of birthday cards that I created for my friends in our Birthday Card Swap. We all had so much fun doing our Christmas Card Swap, we decided we are all "happy mail" addicts and wanted to continue the fun throughout the year. So here's my collection for February:
First up is my card for Bobbi. She is such a talented lady and I was in a plaque swap with her last year so I happen to know that she loves fairies and the shabby chic style. I'm just now learning that style and have only done a few things in it so I haven't quite mastered it yet.
Last month my friend LaRee taught us how to make easel cards with this pretty little fairy card. It was fun and so easy to make I decided to use it as a base for Bobbi's card.

|Inside Sentiment Before Finishing Touches|
Next up is my friend Debbie. She is the hostess at Brat's Latte Cafe where we hang out between swaps to stay in touch. Debbie is so sweet and exceptionally talented so I knew I had to dig a bit deeper to make her smile. She loves pinks and whites and the shabby chic style too.
Here's the vintage card I created for Debbie:

Last but not least is my friend Glenda. She is a wonderful artist and I've displayed some of her work on my Art Journal Board on Pinterest. Glenda also loves pinks, pastels and shabby chic too! Are you starting to see why I really need to learn this style! lol
Here is Glenda's shabby chic card:

Glenda's loved her card too! So happy my friends all enjoyed their special gifts this month. I'm already busy on next months creations.
Well that's it for me today! Thank you for stopping by and may I wish you a very special day. Till next time my friends, scrap happy! Hugs ~ Dawna
