Happy B DAY!




 
 
Sunshine weather.....straight ahead!  We have only a small baby patch of ice left on our back patio.  It will be sorely missed by our black lab Riley (he loves to roll in it after playing fetch).  I have a card today for RRR that reminds me of sunshine...gingham, bees, and just plain cheerful.  I used the 3/8 red gingham ....fell in love with it.  Perfect red.  I decided to have fun and dressed up my envelope as well.  I am often guilty of leaving it plain and many of my cards are just plain to thick for an envelope.   It is so much fun though and makes it more special.  It is a great way to use those little snippets of ribbon you don't want to throw away too.  I used just a "tail" for my envelope and think it looks cute.  I think I will be doing this more often!  Hope you enjoy and Happy spring!  hugs, cherry

Cherry these are so wonderful! Your blog always warms my heart each time I visit! I have been gone on a trip for a while and busy with too many other things but I am back in my studio this week and had to come see what you were up to when I saw your name on the Frestive Friday blog!
Love your snowflake card!
Hugs!

I love your gingham. I just bought this paperpack and it's by Authentique. I found it at Bluemoonscrapbooking.com. (It's an older paper) The colors are very rich and I love what you did it.
