Birthday Wishes

 A friend recently asked me to make a birthday card for a friend of hers.  I wanted to do something girlie and fresh looking.  I pulled some of my stash of The Girl's Paperie paper and layered it with some pink and yellow gingham.  I love gingham!  Reminds me of homespun fabric that I absolutely adore.  It adds such warmth to a home. 

Anyway, I digress.  I added a paper doily that I distressed along with a blue ticket that I stamped "Wish!" on.  Used a tiny tag from Papertrey Ink and there ya have it. 

A sweet little card for someone special.  Love the sentiment on the die cut.  So true. 

I also want to share some pics of my garden flowers.  I love gardening.  Mostly in the spring and fall/winter when the weather isn't so blazing hot and humid.  The summer takes such a toll on the plants no matter what I do.  I always hate knowing I'll lose some.

This is our Desert Rose.  Flowers like crazy and super simple to care for.  Drought tolerant which is a huge plus.
My hanging geranium in red.  I've loved geraniums since I was a kid.  My Nana always had them growing in planters on her and Papa's porch.  The smell is so distinctive and it always brings back good memories.
Ah.. my hydrangea.  You wouldn't believe how I've babied this thing!  This is another fond memory from childhood at Nana and Papa's.  They had hydrangeas in blue and I always thought they were so pretty.  Wish I had them all around the house.  Maybe one day
Until next time,
