HummingBird UPDATE and May CrafterNooner Swap Cards

Happy Friday My Blogger Friends!
Today I have the cards that my friends Opal and Jan made for our May CrafterNooners Swap card.  BUT......before I share those cards with you......I have SUPER GREAT NEWS!  Our Momma Hummingbird's first egg hatched yesterday.  It was right on schedule at 16 days.  We are keeping our fingers crossed that the second egg will hatch either today or tomorrow.  Here's what our first little hummer looks like........
You can see him next to the one egg that hasn't hatched yet........and even though he looks like a good size.....Honestly he is only the size of my little finger nail.  I think I will name this little guy SPIKE!   I'll keep you posted when the second egg hatches.
SO.....on with my card share for today.  First up is Opal's card.  Opal used a Melon Mambo card base and added a Pretty in Pink panel to the front of her card and embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.
She embossed three gorgeous flowers and added them to a string of ribbon and then onto a piece of FUN ribbon that ran the length of her card.
She also added some little daisy flowers and a 'heart' sentiment to the front of her card. This is a GORGEOUS Card Opal and I honestly have to say that this is a TRUE Kadie Card from start to finish.  LOVE THIS CARD!

Next up is Jan's May CraterNooner Swap card......
Jan made this EXTRA SPECIAL Birthday card that packs a LOT of punch......
Jan used a "Happy Birthday" embossing folder and created some WOW flag banners and arranged them PERFECTLY on her card.  AWESOME CARD JAN!  Might just have to send this one to my granddaughter who loves purple.
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share more Kards by Kadie creations with you - Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
