Flying By To Say Happy Birthday

I have 3 birthday's in October and I needed to make more birthday cards. I seem to always need birthday cards more than anything.
I used some Tim Holtz water color paper. I applied some Chipped Sapphire distress ink all around the outer edges and then in the center I applied Dusty Concord distess ink. I took some water on my hand and splattered some water all over the paper and then took a paper towel to dry the spots. I put some perfect pears on my craft sheet and mixed it with some \water and put it on my paint brush and splattered it across the paper to give it some shine and to look a little like stars. I also took my Signo Uniball white pen and made a few small dots for some brighter stars.

For the circle I cut it out using MFT Die-namics and then I used Dried marigold on the circle. I thought it could use some other color so I used Rusty hinge to a few spots. I also splattered water on it.
I wanted some trees on the card so I found Mama Elephant Winter Wonderland has a birch tree and I used Versafine black ink. Some of them are 2nd generation stamped. I don't have any bats in my stamp stash so I just took the birds from the same stamp set and placed them on the card.

The mouse image is from Gerda Steiner Designs Challenge. I used a lot of markers to get the colors I wanted. I will list them all at the bottom . I used wink of stella clear to put on the cape and purple band of the hat. I used Zig 2 way glue to put the image on. Then for the whole front panel I use 3m foam tape and put it on some orange card stock.
The sentiments are from 2 different stamps. Flying by to say is from My Creative Time Fly away sentiments , Happy is from Simon Says Stamps Love this and  birthday is from Simon Says Stamp Happy stamps.

Here is the list of supplies I used:

Father's Day

I think this is such a good card for a guy. Since Father's Day is tomorrow I have made a few of these. I found some shiny light gray cardstock in my stash and embossed it with the diamond plate embossing folder. Then I took a pocket die from My creative time and cut that out of blue jean paper that I also had in my stash. The wrench and screwdriver's are from my silhouette design studio. I'm not sure where I found the images lol
Here is a list of supplies that I had used

Thank you card

I finally got this done. I think the little skunk is so cute and it was so easy to color.  I colored him with some spectrum noir markers and some copic markers.
 I also used Lawn Fawn Gleeful Gardens for the mushrooms and flower. I cut the clouds out with Lawn Fawn Into the Woods cloud dies. The sentiment is from WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals.
The little flower in the background is from Lawn Fawn Let's Play set. That is the closest flower I had to what the skunk is holding.

Hello Card

I'm sorry I have been missing in action. I ended up going a week to Cheyenne, Wyoming to spend time with my grandmother for her 97th birthday. I really enjoyed the time with her. Then when I got back I spend a week searching for new living room furniture. I forgot how hard it is to find what I want lol!
 Then I decided to move my craft room to the smaller room so my hubby can have the bigger room for his man cave. I still don't have my room done but I needed to get this card done.

 I colored the girl with my spectrum nior markers and cut her out with My creative time stitched rectangle die. The hello sentiment is from My creative time chunky jar accesories. The girl is from Gerda Steiner. She is so cute and easy to color which I am just learning to color with markers so I need easy
