It is a beautiful day here in Nova Scotia. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the squirrels are up to their squirrelly antics. Although the lawn has some dandelions that need to be pulled, I opted to head into the craft room first to finish the birthday card I started last night. Funny how "work" easily moves to the back burner. :)
The birthday card used Quietfire's Happy Family Days set:
The set was designed to coordinate with Spellbinders Labels One. The swirls were stamped in green and the sentiment in Archival Ink (Potting Soil). It was die cut with Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One. Next green card stock was die cut (Spellbinders Decorative Labels One), ivory card stock (Labels One Card Front) and all was mounted on Kraft card stock.
I stacked white tissue paper and die cut it using Spellbinders Blossom Two die. It was dyed using Distress Stain in Abandoned Coral, a brad inserted through the center and was gathered to create the flower. Green card stock was die cut using Spellbinders Create a Rose leaves dies.
Sweet, simple and happy. I hope whoever receives the card will like it.
Before I head out I wanted to show you some of the tulips that popped up in one of my gardens this year. I should literally have hundreds of tulips in the spring showing off their beauty. However, last year I had a problem with my tulips and I do not think even 20 popped up. I was concerned that a disease had gotten a hold of all of them but decided to wait a year before pulling out all of the bulbs and starting over. Thankfully many of the tulips came back. Here are a few from one of my gardens. This garden is full of red, yellow, and red/yellow blended tulips.
The photos do not do them justice. They are stunning in person! They really brighten up a day and I love seeing them soaking up the sun.
Thanks for hanging out until the end! :)
Have a fabulous weekend.
