Daisy Birthday Wishes

Eun Bday 17-1

This fabulous sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! is CTS_230my inspiration for today’s card.  This is one of those sketches that I’ll save and revisit a bunch of times. I’ve already cut the pieces for about 10 more cards in various papers, to be made up when I have more time to fiddle with how I want to finish them off.

This card, however, was for one of my closest friends. Our group of seven friends have been together for forty-plus years now…and we’ve called ourselves “the Daisies” for about half that time.  (DAISY is an acronym for a now-long-forgotten description of us that we came up with when we were all still young enough to NOT be eligible for the Red Hat Society, but liked the concept of having our own group moniker. Ah, those were the days–young, brash, and just plain silly!  😉 )  Anyway, so when SU offered their Delightful Daisy suite this year, it was naturally first on my list. Between the beautiful paper prints….and the stamp set….and the PUNCH!….I’m in daisy heaven, which is definitely a delightful place to be!

Suite Sayings celebration

K Bday 2017-2I’m on a birthday-cards-made-with-vintage-yumminess kick, so here’s another one along that line.  Lots of pretty bows and banners happening here. This one is a belated card for a great-niece who is officially a teen this year. (How is this possible??)  We DID “celebrate her” on her special day–I just didn’t get a card made in time! EEK!  That’s okay–she said this one was worth waiting for (gotta love that!)

I went full-on vintage-vibe for my sister’s birthday card this year. I figure “vintage” describes us well, but don’t tell HER I said that!  This paper encouraged me to use some grunged-up stamping on the sentiment panel, too, and the ombre ribbon was a perfect finishing touch.
