Birthday Blog Hop


Let’s light the candles and strike up the music!! The owner of Flourishes – Jan Marie Caruso – is celebrating a birthday and we’re helping her by getting the party started with just about the entire Flourishes Crew! Why not leave some love on her blog HERE and while you are hopping around, pay a visit to the Flourishes team members who are honoring her special day! Jan I hope your day is wonderful and your year is even better! Happy Birthday!

My creation is using A Year In Flowers 2. The fun trim was actually made from cutting out several other dies and the end result was this fun design. Well I am not one to waste a cool design so here you go. lol Tied my sentiment off with a button and twine combo as Betty taught me that buttons are my friend. Yes they are, and I can't put them down. LOL

Thank you so very much, for this special day in my life. You ladies are great!

Very pretty card. I really don't like this new blog and word verification, it's very hard to read. If you all change your preferences to having to ok them after 3 days it keeps the spammers out of your blog.

Betty Wright said...

Love the colors and coloring, Stacy! I really need to remember to do the embossed framing more, too! Love that look!

The depth of color of your iris is just lovely. Just simple detail but the embossing adds a punch to your design.
