Bloomin Birthday

Does this title remind you of the Bloomin' Onion from The Outback? You must be hungry!

This is a birthday card for my friend Carrie Beth. She loves to garden, and loves flowers, so I hope she likes this card - it reminds me of her! I paper pieced the wheelbarrow with chocolate chip, and the wheel for the wheelbarrow is a jumbo eyelet - I love it!

Time Well Spent

Today is my best gal pal, Lynsay's birthday. She and I go way back, and unfortunately we don't get to see each other often enough! I hope she likes this card - she is a very regular follower!

This stamp set is a retired Hostess set, but I just LOVE LOVE the saying. And it is very appropriate for her since we have to really take advantage of our time together! And she loves a little bling - whatcha think of the bling?

Card Recipe:

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Accessories: Rhinestone Brads, Pink Pirouette Ribbon, Clear Embossing Powder, Dimensionals

Happy Birthday Girlfriend! :)
