Birthday's Galore!

Good morning ~  I've got a couple of cards to share that I made for specific challenges.  I've been super busy being involved with an Easter Event at our church but had Wednesday off to play and since April is a big birthday month for us (9 birthdays), I needed to catch up on some birthday cards.   
These first two cards are for the PTI Create Along With Us challenge.  I was completely taken by Stephanie Gold's idea to create a sentiment border.  I stamped two different panels, one with the sentiment border and one with balloons and cut them evenly so I could create two cards.  Both of these will be going to two of my great little's who celebrate their birthdays this month.

This card is for one of my nieces.  They have 4 cats and a dog so I thought she'd get a kick out of this fun Newton's Nook Birthday Flutter image.  This card will be entered into the Seize the Birthday challenge using two patterned papers.  

 My next card is a spinner card for another niece.  She has a hedgehog as a pet so this card is perfect for her.  My sweet friend Marcia sent me this adorable hedgehog die and it works perfectly with the ECD spinners dies.  The flowers are from MFT.

I'll also be entering one of these cards into the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Spring Colors
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

These are all absolutely perfect! Love the balloons with the hearts!! The cat who ate the bird is just too fun, she will think it is funny and who wouldn't love a spinner card with your pet on it, great thought went into all of these!
