So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Birthday Blessings

This is a card made for 2 challenges....and ALSO for a 93 year old's birthday in June!
It is for Joan's Garden card and also matching tag card -- anything goes and the card and tag are to match. Also for Stamp TV's  Mix It Up Monday Challenge which was to use flowers as the focal point.
I enjoyed making this set...I used some new dp paper I found by Daisy Bucket Love Blossoms , on GKD turquoise cs. Used Grand Labels 4 to cut out the stamp design on GKD white cs. The stamp was Outlines Spring Bonnet colored with copics and sakura glitter pens.  I also used GKD Stenciled Spring for saying on the front. I used Vivid Raspberry, Memento Summer Sky inks. Added some pearls, ribbon and embellishments. The inside stamp was Hero Arts.  For the tag I stamped with Outlines Summer Breeze in Bahama Blue Memento and used Papertrey Birthday Basics sayings in black Memento. Think it should do the trick as she LOVES flowers!
