I was looking outside my window yesterday and was a little sad that our daisy's are finished blooming for the year. We have a stray one here and there, but that's it. This card was made with no stamp set or ink. I used the Happy Birthday Thinlits and the Daisy Punch along with cardstock and the beautiful Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. Did you see the ribbon? It is called double stitched ribbon which means there are "x" on one side and the other side looks like stitching.
This is the ribbon I like so much that I have order 6 spools of it. LOL Whenever I was placing an order at the beginning of the catalog launch I would add it on to my order. I did that 3 times! What is really sad is that I only have 2 left. I guess I really do like it.
To make this card you need the following materials:
Night of Navy Cardstock #100867
- cut at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" for the Happy Birthday

Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper #144137
To make the Happy Birthday easier to stick down I used our new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. I was so excited when I saw them return in the annual catalog. If you haven't tried them, you will love them once you do. I had some left from when we use to sell them, but I have to admit I was hoarding them. LOL Now I can buy more!
I punched out 2 of the daisy flowers and staggered them to give it a fuller look, which I like. For the center of the flower I used the Faceted Gems in gold (I used the largest sized one). I attached my ribbon first and then added my daisy, but I laid my daisy down where I wanted it for a guide of where to put my ribbon. The daisy is adhered using a dimensional to give it height and to go over the ribbon.
This is a fun and easy card to make for a birthday, especially a summer birthday.
It was a busy weekend at our house. On Friday, for two of my angels, it was their last day with me taking care of them. I have to say, this is the hardest part of my job. I love these children so much and when they leave it breaks my heart. Heck, I am crying while I am typing this and its been three days. I know they will do great, but it is still hard. I think the hardest part is, they won't remember me because they are 3 and 4 years old. Can you remember anything when you were that age?
On Saturday I went to Stamp Away (it is a convention of different companies selling all things to do with paper crafting) with my best friend Robin. We both wanted to go to the Stamp n Storage booth. If you are in need of storage for your crafting supplies, I highly highly recommend them. Click HERE for their website. The two of us definitely bought out share of things from them. I can always find places to add more pieces to what I already have.
When we got home Mr. Wonderful and I went looking at countertops for the kitchen and carpet for our upstairs. We are slowly trying to update our house (which is 18 years old) and are almost finished with the upstairs. We decided on our countertops! Yay! They have been ordered and hopefully they will be here in about 4 weeks. Now, time to really starting to look at carpet.
I hope you had a terrific weekend and have a marvelous Monday! Today is the beginning of a new week, make it special!
