Happy Birthday Cards


We had a gorgeous weather over the weekend.  The snow were melting and we finally saw the grass for once in a long time. But more snow is on the way.  Oh, well, it is still winter after all.

Any way, I made these cards awhile ago.  They looked like I spent a lot of time on them but they are quick cards.  They are all the same layout just different color.

I had a hard time finding nice buttons for the doll clothes.  My niece told me a thrift store in Philadelphia. I drove by that place all the time but never went in.  Until last Saturday I went in oh boy so many buttons. They store them in big plastic containers.  I had to search for the buttons that I like.   They are 10 cent each no matter size or design. I went for the big and fancy looking ones. I thought it was a good deal.    What do you think?

These are my favorite.  They are about 3/4 " big.

Have a wonderful week a head.

Such beautiful flowers there... love the three dimensional aspect and also the bright colours.
Helen, my daughter has taken off the crochet flower from the hairband and she wears it as a clip on her hair. It looks soooooooooooo pretty and it matches with lots of her tee shirts so she is happy.
Thank you for your kindness,
