"Fun Birds" and February birthdays

Most of our immediate family celebrate birthdays and anniversaries in January and February.

My oldest Grandson starts the ball rolling on 21st January and this year I made him an Angry Birds card.  I had seen a few on the blogs and picked bits and pieces from them to create my own version with the punches and papers that I had.  The card proved very popular and I ended up making quite a few more:

and, yes, I did go a bit overboard, but they are disappearing fast !!

One with the lot !

finishing off with a large circle card which was totally my own design and which I loved.

Then it was birthday time for our princess:

Beautiful butterfly:

 This one is a case of a card I saw some time ago on the blog of Laurie Zoellmer.  Such a simple design but quite lovely.  I had some trouble with the Elegant Lines embossing folder cutting too deeply and had to add an extra layer of card to correct it.

Thanks for dropping in,
cheers till the next batch,
