Good evening everyone! I hope that today found you well. The past couple of weeks I've been a little busy. With Mother's Day, then Danielle's birthday ~ she turned 23. Where has the time gone to? And then with hubby working last weekend and his only day off we had chores to do. The planting of his garden. It is a little small this year, but that's ok. Gardens are nice to have, we always had them when I was growing up and they are so rewarding. But with hubby working so many hours they are a lot of work. I did get some plants for out front and NO I have not killed them yet. As I knock on wood :) and I did get some herbs I planted out back. I have already plucked some cilantro for salsa I made this week!
So enough of my babble, I seem to do that a lot. I'm sure you have not missed that! I'm on to the card that I made for Danielle's birthday.
The base is a basic white card that I layered with Basic Black and some green pattern paper I had. I used the Pleasant Poppies SU! background stamp for the main focal image that I layered on to a die cut circle and scallop circle that I cut out with my nesties. I also colored the images again, hand cut them and pop dotted them on to the card for a little more dimension. I then added the sentiment "celebrate" that is a foam stamp I had with a small piece of ribbon, button and bakers twine. Notice the stitching? This self proclaimed Non-Seamstress actually pulled out the sewing machine and did the stitching all by herself. Yes, I am proud of it!!
Danielle loves poppies! She has SO much stuff she's purchased for her house/apartment when she moves that has poppies on it so I knew that she'd like the card.
I wanted to share that with you tonight. I will be posting cards that I've made for the upcoming class on the 30th. If your in the area.... I'd love to see you! And if I don't get back here in the next day or two I hope that you have a safe holiday weekend.
