I made a birthday card for my nephew this morning. I am really proud of myself because his birthday is on Sunday. It will arrive to him a couple of days early - yippee!! Now this may sound strange, but I am notoriously late with cards and gifts. I don't mean to be, but time always seems to slip away, and there I am hurrying at the last minute again. So you can see why this is an accomplishment!
Fanfare papers for this card. My nephew plays baseball in the summer, so I wanted to get a baseball in there. I found one on my Slice Big Kids card. I cut it on some of the patterned paper and then adhered it to a white circle. Of course, I had to sponge it all with desert sand ink to make it look dusty from a ball field! The ribbon is from the Black Mini Medleys collection, and the stamp is from Happy Birthday (a discontinued set).
I took a look around the yard and everything is so green. I guess after all the rainy weather we've been having, it should be! I wanted to show you pictures of a few of my favorite blooming flowers. The first is a bearded iris. It has propagated by someone in this area, so it has the most wonderful smell! I always cut these and bring them in.
I've been working on a 3x3 card class, too, so when that is done I'll post pictures and give you the details!
