Birthday Card for Dawn/Baby Shower Card for Kimberly and Thank You Notes

This is the birthday card that I made for Dawn, a friend of mine from church. Her birthday was yesterday, Sunday, December 7th. She loves purple so the card base is purple with a piece of designer paper that's a little lighter than the card. I added a black layer and then used a SU set on a white layer. Those are 2 lavender flower brads on the left side with a fabric flower in the center. I used a lavender brad in the center of the flower. The saying says "happy bird-day", there's a tiny bird perched on the edge of the wheelbarrow. I used Copic and SU markers to color. I finished off the inside of the card with a layer of white cardstock and a strip of the designer paper, however, forgot to take a picture of the inside. After church we enjoyed lunch at Mimi's in Roseville with Dawn and her son, Shane. The daughter of another of my friends is expecting her first baby in February. She is having a girl and will name it Brooke Lynn. Kim's shower was Saturday afternoon, given by her mother Diana (my friend) and her big sister Laura. The nursery colors are lavender, seafoam green and cream. I made her card in lavender although it looks blue. There's a piece of designer paper on the side and then I embossed tiny feet on a piece of white backed by a soft green.
This is the inside of the card, I used a piece of ivory cardstock then a strip of the designer paper which I embossed the tiny feet on. I apologize, the pictures aren't very clear.

Here are the thank you cards I made for Kim. The card base is a glossy white that I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder on the top of the card. I used the tiny feet again and backed it with either the soft green or lavender. And added the ribbon to finish it off.
Kim really liked these cards and placed an order for 2 dozen more, 1 dozen of each. She is having another shower at work in January and wants me to make more thank you cards after that shower. She has also asked me to make her birth announcements.
