Birthday and Thank Yous

My youngest celebrates his 2nd birthday tomorrow.  How quickly time flies.  Got this cute card from Cheryl.  It has all these interesting folds and I haven't really seen this anywhere so I'm not sure if it has a name or anything.  Maybe she'll blog about it later???

This is how the card opens up.

This is the back side of the card.

The back side also opens up but horizontally.  Isn't that neat?

I really liked how the card opened up so I thought I would make a couple but just a simpler version.
My version just opens in the front.  I love Fleur Anya from TGF.  She is so cute.  I cut the scallop square from felt that I bought at Walmart using my new Big Shot.  I really want to try the wool felt from PTI though so that's on my next order there.  And I do love my Big Shot.  It's so easy to use and my youngest likes to turn the handle with me.  I'm sending this as a Thank You card for Cheryl.  (Sorry, spoiling the surprise).  She was so thoughtful to not only remember my son's birthday but also to give all my kids Disney gift cards while we were at Disneyland!  Really generous.

Opened view.  Yeah, my copics leaked through the paper.

Another angle.

This is the second card I made with Fleur Anya.  I've been meaning to send Jen over at Pieces of Me a Thank You card for all the wonderful blog candy but got sidetracked by our trip.  I don't want her to think I forgot.

That's it for now.  Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Wow, I can't believe you already crafted something. I think I waste too much time watching TV. Thanks for the thank you card! I got Ryan a gift card too, but he wanted to save his and only spend mom's money!
