You Make Me Happy ... Most Days

Pin It

Happy Thursday, race fans!

Today's super-simple card was created with Designer Paper and chipboard flowers. My collection of chipboard appears to be procreating because every time I open my chippy-stash, there's more of 'em! I decided it was time to disrupt the breeding, hence today's project. Fascinating, huh?

I covered my chippy flowers, and created stems, with patterned paper from the one, the only, Cosmo Cricket! This particular paper comes from the "Hello Sunshine" collection.

I stamped my sentiment, from Close to My Heart, available HERE, and mounted it in a label holder from Stampin' Up's "Hodgepodge Hardware" collection. I die-cut some flowers from card stock, threaded some buttons with DMC embroidery floss, created a border with a Martha Stewart punch, and finis! So quick and easy, it's practically illegal!

So, Sheila's mother-in-law has a birthday coming up. Last night, I asked her what they were planning on getting for her.

"Nothing!" Sheila answered.

"Well, that's cold," I responded.

"No, it isn't ... not really. Last year, we bought her a v-e-r-y expensive cemetery plot and since she still hasn't used it, I'm not getting her anything this year."

I. Kid. You. Not!

Love this! Great job with the chipboard. I am seriously chipboard challenged and rarely use the stuff.
