Another December Birthday

I’ve still have a “thing” for paper flowers. So, the paper flower appearance in this card could not be denied. I used the Mojo Monday 170 sketch for the card’s layout and came up with this…

Because I have a love of things that "pop" such as the flower and the sentiment, it was easy to participate with this week's Ways To Use It Challenge (302).
Enjoy and please let me know what you think.

Congratulate with "Floweriness"

I have wanted to make these paper flowers ever since I saw the video.  So when I saw this card from Julie Lacey and the lovely yet simple layout.  I knew it would be perfect for the occasion and chance to create a paper flower.  When it’s meant to be, it’s just meant to be.  So there’s my story and I’m sticking to it.  I hope you enjoy my vision of paper “floweriness”.  Believe it or not (because I didn’t) “floweriness” is a word.  I looked it up because inquiring minds have to know.

Enjoy and please tell me what you think.  Your comments are the air that I breathe.  Ok – not really, but I really, really enjoy reading them.  Great….now, I have The Air That I Breathe by the Hollies stuck in my head.  Don’t ask me where that came from…I’m completely random at times.  All I can say is that my music repertoire is far and wide and all it takes is a couple of words to trigger the most obscure. 

Ok, Ok…I’ve blabbed enough.

Birthday Suit

It’s that time of year when not only the holidays are near, but my Pop’s birthday is here. Let me tell you the story behind this card…

I wanted to tip my own personal creative meter with his birthday card. I was in competition with myself to top his Father's Day Card (click here to view). After much creative pondering and Google searching for ideas, I got the idea for this card when I came across the Father's Day Trio Card Kit Instruction Manual (click here to access). 

ETA: to make links more apparent.

I said to myself, “Self…” Just kiddidng, but I did think this card would the creative challenge I’ve been looking for. My pops is very dapper in his suits and he thinks so too. LOL! So, I knew this card would be a hit with him.

Anywho…needless to say pops loved it. He probably enjoyed the card more for what was on the inside. I had a photo of him posing in a suit and underneath the photo was “Still Looking Good!

The rest as they say is history. Please let me know what you think.

Paper: Dark Brown and Green CS (Hobby Lobby), Designer Paper (K&Company)
