FOREVER 59 PARTY

My husband and kids threw me a Forever 59 party.  Of course I made all of the food and the decorations.  We had such a great time.  I had friends from high school and college.  It was a lot of work but well worth it.  Here are some photos.

PUPPY IN A CRATE

GOOD MORNING. The good news is I have been doing a lot of crafting.  The bad news I am at home because I have bronchitis.  For 4 weeks I have had the flu then a cough.  Finally I am anti biotics.  On the flip side-I have had a lot of time to create.   We are celebrating a ton of birthdays tonight at my sister in laws house.  I made this card for my nephews wife.  They have the cutest maltese and they are expecting a baby in July.
The outside stamp is Heartfelt Creations "You're Paw-fect.  I watercolored the image with Marvy Markers.  The inside image is Heartfelt Creations Pampered Pooch Pals

HYACINTH

Here is another floral card.  This time I chose to cut a Hyacinth.  I cut the bloom twice in two shades of purple.  Then i sculpted the flowers and added a lavender pearl to them.  The papers and the St. Patricks Day sentiment are from Graphics 45.

"HELLO" DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY CHALLENGE #200

Today begins the 200th Thankful Thursday Challenge and the theme is Flowers.  Of course you can always substitute a Thank You Card.  I love seeing what you create for these challenges.  You are all so inspirational.  Congrats to Diana for hosting 200 challenges.(At least, that doesn't include the Linky Challenges).  Diana has so many beautiful Bundles in her shop.  Check it out HERE.  For this challenge  I chose  Gold and Crown Gold from the GOLD BUNDLE.  I also used a pretty green button from the VINTAGE BUTTON collection.  Diana offers my readers a 10% discount just use the code k34510 at check out.
Daffodils are my favorite flower.  My dad always grows them in the yard and they usually bloom on my birthday.  For my 18th birthday (So long ago) he watercolored a beautiful vase of daffodils.  I began by searching Cricut Design Space for the perfect flower.  I found this one on Spring Cottage.  I cut the image out of Colorbok paper.   Then I distressed the edges with Distress Inks.  I scored some line on the leaves.  I wanted an abstract sky and grass.  The blue is a flocked paper by Anna Griffin.  The patterned green paper and the "hello" die are also Anna Griffin.  I adhered a band of Crown Gold between the sky and grass.  I tied a gold bow and attached a pretty green button to the center of it.
