SSC #200 Fun Flowers

Fun Flowers Die

I just got the Fun Flowers Die and I had to use it even though it is similar to cards done by the 411 operators.  I also used the Fun Flowers to make felt flowers which the girls put on straw purses ($2.50 from Target) for church on Easter.  I made my mother 2 flowers with ivory and green paisley paper for her garden club scrap-book and she offered to pay me they looked so nice.  Actually after 7 years of college, 14 years of dance- I thought the least I could do for her is make Easter dinner, give her three beautiful granddaughters  and 2 Fun Flowers.
This is a short post because I just finished 45 baby shower invitations for my friend.  She wanted a Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme, and I was inspired by a bud vase I got for a wedding gift 22 years ago in a beautiful  turquoise Tiffany’s box with a white bow.  I still have the box-go figure, and the bud vase.  Also I owe a big Thank you to Lee Conrey’s bow maker, otherwise I would have never been able to make 45 bows that look perfect.

Onesie Baby Card

Nautical Onesie

My parents asked me to make a baby card.  I made this cute onesie several months ago, and tried another rendition.  The template is from Butternut Sage, http://butternutsagedesigns.blogspot.com/, however the additions are all my own.  A friend of my daughter, Kenny Wilson, an artist drew the anchor since my mother wanted a nautical theme, and I did not have any suitable fish stamps.  I think the card came out cute.  In hindsight with the anchor I might have used a darker blue, but the cherry cobbler color was added later.

I am on spring break with the kids, and it is almost over :(.  Today we had torrential rain, but our friends were visiting from Orlando so we all went to the Japanese Steak house for lunch.   There were 10 of us so we filled up our own table.  If life gives you lemons make lemonaid.

As a final note today is our cat’s, Miley 1st birthday.  We have had her eight months.  To celebrate we had cupcakes.  What my family won’t do for food.
