Last in the series

Hi!  How is everyone on this fine (warm) day.  It is going to reach 82 degrees F here in St. Louis, Missouri USA today.  Love it!  I wanted to share with you the last of the recent birthday cards I made .  I think I will reserve this for my dil Jackie on the 26.  Gosh, how I love her.  I got lucky in the dil area of my life.  Between Jackie, Amber, Jill and now what will be Felicia (as of May, 2013) I couldn't ask for better.
Since I cleaned and organized my studio and went thru all of my paper I have been trying to use whatever I had.  I found this beautiful paper that made me want to smile.  Isn't it pretty?  It combined two of my favorite colors, lime green and purple.  I decided to color Tilda (isn's she adorable?) with the same colors.  I wanted to showcase her so I just added a few bottons and my Happy Birthday circle.  Simple yet sweet.  I will be showcasing more cards using up papers that I found in the near future.  I have three more made that I need to take pictures of.  I can't wait to share them with you!  I certainly am glad that I am out of my creative slump.  It wasn't fun not being able to create new things.  It isn't in my nature.  I have been playing with things every since I was a small child.  I won't even tell you how many years that has been!  lol.  I hope you enjoy my card today.  Love, Elle
