Apothecary Birthday

Good morning everyone! Once again I am pre-posting as we will be driving home early in the morning. What a most fabulous time we have had! The boys didn't win any of their games and it wasn't even close on any of them but they gained some great experience and made some really great memories! As for the adults, we all had a super fun time, too! My cousin Diane lives in this area and met us for Nick's games! We don't get to see each other except for maybe once a year so this was super special! We went to the zoo and had lunches together! I just love being near family! The other fun thing that we did was to meet up with a classmate of my husbands. They were friends all through high school. They fixed us dinner two of the evenings and then we just sat and talked and talked. Nick even got to take home a scorpion! Yuck but Nick loves it! They also gave us two boxes of tangelos and a few lemons all from their backyard! They smell SO good! It will be a long drive home but our hearts will be full of wonderful memories! We can't wait to come back!

Today's card is the last of the cards that I did with my stamp club ladies this month. I really loved how this one turned out! I stamped The image from Apothecary Art in black StazOn on Confetti White card stock. Then I used a blender pen to color in the flowers. I used Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade and Daffodil Delight ink pads. Then I cut around the image with scissors. I stamped the greeting from the same stamp set in black StazOn. I cut a frame from a piece of Basic Black card stock with the Labels framelits die and adhered the stamped one to the Basic Black one. I punched a piece of Daffodil Delight with the Lace punch and glued this to the card base of Confetti White card stock. On top of this I glued a piece of Wisteria Wonder that was run through the Big Shot with the Petal Cone die. The labels are popped up on the card. The finishing touch was to add two pearls on the banner. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!!
