Are you my mother?

I loved that book when my boys were little.... the bird looking for his mother and asks all kinds of things if they are.  It inspired this card.  This little duck is flying into the pot with the daisy and asking if it is his mother.

The inside of the card is finished as well.

Sunny Days

I successfully planted and grew sunflowers this year.  I have such a black thumb and I've never been able to get them to grow.  I have been successful also with pumpkins this year. In the spring, when I planted these plants, it hailed.  I lost the corn, wildflowers, and carrots in that storm.  

This is my thank you card with sunflowers and impatiens.  The banner is a "Thanks" stamp from Close To My Heart's Wonderful Wreath.  I weaved the wreath out of some rather stiff twine to give it a kind of grapevine wreath feel.  I sewed the wreath into the card. Then, I began adding rows of branches.  I used Martha Stewart's branch cut for them.  I  used a Marvy punch for the sunflowers and impatiens.  Add some fall color backgrounds, polka dot embossing and someone will appreciate this thank you note.  

I really love sunflowers.  However, I do NOT like the dog days of HOT summer.  Staying inside and crafting cards seems like a much more fun thing to do. 



Smaller photo to show that the inside has layers as well.  


Have a happy day!

I Can't Believe It.........

This is my grandson, Ellis, lip-syncing on the video release of THE COASTS new album.  The song is fantastic even if I am super proud and prejudice about who it is starring.  Take a look.  If you like the song, PLEASE share it so the song gets more airplay.
