Birthdays Times Four And An Anniversary

This post is full of birthday day cards for my niece and her family plus an anniversary card for my niece and her husband.  I missed getting cards off for my grandniece Katie's 5th birthday in February and her daddy's birthday in March.  In just a few days it will be my niece's birthday, her anniversary and next month is her oldest daughter's 8th birthday. So I decided to make cards for all of them and send them in one package along with two bags of papercrafting supplies for my little grandnieces. First card here is for Katie:
I just had to color this darling Happy Mimosa image by Bildmalarna with my Copic markers making her hair red  in honor of my cute little redheaded grandniece Katie.  Also had to use lots of pink and purple on this card 'cause those are favorites of Katie's  I used embossing folders for added interest on both the pink layer (Stampin' Up folder)  and the lavender layer (Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder) plus a die cut with a coordinating designer paper.  Hope she enjoys her very late birthday card.

My niece's husband love old trains so this was the theme for his birthday card here:

My niece will be celebrating her birthday in a few days.  I created a  Swing (Flip Flop) Card here:
 Here's another view:
 And with the reverse sid of the flip flop:

The day after her birthday is my niece and her husband's anniversary.  Here's their card:

And last but certainly not least is Marie's birthday card.  She'll  be turning 8 in June:
This darling image is Ella by Claudia & Company
The designer paper is from DCWV All Occasion Glitter Stack
I added some glitter white paper embossed wtih a Cuttlebug folder
The flowers are by Recollections at Michael's.
A little stickles on Ella's necklace for a little added glamour.
For the layout for this card I used this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:
