Pleasant Poppies Birthday

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.

Happy Cinco de Mayo Everyone!!!  What I wouldn't give for some Mexican food right now :) but it's going to be left over chicken & mashed potatoes night.  Bummer....

I was busy with Jan this weekend helping her out and Monday I didn't feel like getting on the computer so I didn't ~ so that brings me here with your card for the day!
This was another one of the cards I made from our last class.  It's the same card I just different ribbon and turned the DSP around.  It was actually a hit!  I had one girl do this one twice.  That made me feel good.  The DSP is some old SU! paper that I have had for about 3 years now, and the package was not even opened.  I stamped the bird cage and owl from the Aviary stamp set in Chocolate Chip and Daffodil Delight inks and layered them with some (old) YoYo Yellow and Marina Mist papers and pop dotted it to the card.  OH!  I almost forget to mention before you pop dot the focal point you've got to add the ribbon.  Trust me, my first one I had to wiggle it thru with the tweezers.

I'm sitting here in the craft room with the window open, there is a little breeze ~ it's so nice outside.  I think that I just may have to go out there!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great afternoon!!
