So, how'd I make the card? With the exception of the card base, everything is made from snippets. It's funny, I've been saving the stripe piece for a long time. Only it was the other since I planned on using. I think the stripes are perfect for this card. The sentiment is a Hampton Art stamp that came from a clearance bin. The scarecrow is from Stampendous. I probably bought this stamp 12 or more years ago. The pumpkin is a Cuttlebug die and embossing folder, as is the maple leaf peeking out from the inside. Yes, that is a Spellbinder die or two....I'm going to post this card over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. I know there will be lots of friends posting there. You might want to check it out, after all....I know you have snippets too! The gals I've met there are so much fun and you can skip onto the playground and have a go on the swings.
I know I don't look a day over 35 (now is where you say...35! I was sure you were younger than that!) but....I had a birthday, and it was so much fun hearing from my kids and grand kids, family and friends, opening cards, going out to dinner with the neighbors and enjoying the beautiful flowers. I have to smile every time I walk past my dining room table....Isn't it beautiful! Thank you everyone who made my birthday so special. I love you all!
Brenda brought a bouquet that someone had given her. She thought I might want to disassemble it and she was sure I could find a good use for some of the parts. This is what she gave me....
And this is what I saved......
I'm sure I can find a good way to use these flowers....I guess I should get off to bed. Tomorrow I'm cropping with the Monday group and going out for another birthday lunch....I love birthdays!
Sending happy crafting wishes to all....and don't forget, it's not too late to enter my blogaversary give-away. Check previous posts for exactly how to enter!
Hugs to all,
