Birthday cards and other bits and bobs

June is a busy time for me birthday wise and here are a few cards I've made so far this month.

Some new papers and the in colours for 2015-2017 from Stampin Up.

This is the inside.

A card for my brother in law's 60th birthday.

The bags I made for Adam and Lucy's wedding anniversary gift of matching aprons.

A few post it notes for my neighbour

and finally a card for my friend Pam's step daughter's 40th birthday.  We are going to her BBQ tomorrow and the invite said no gifts so I thought I'd do a special card instead.

It's another easel card with a drawer full of note cards.

Maria's birthday card with note cards.

I wanted to make a special card for my friend Maria's birthday and I saw this ages ago and really liked it but never got around to making one.  Anyway I thought it was perfect for what I wanted with a little tweaking - I wanted to put some 4" x 3" notecards and envelopes in the drawer so made it bigger.

This is the result:

This is the box

and the box open

the easel card inside

and the little drawer showing the note cards.

Penguin card in a box

I was asked to make a card for my friend's step daughter's 40th birthday.  She wanted penguins, Robbie Williams, Take That, Olly Murs, New Kids on the Block and Taylor Lautner.  Oh yes and the colours of Aston Villa, her favourite football team!

This is what I came up with:

It all folds flat to go in an envelope too.

I just hope she likes it.
