Happy Belated Birthday Debi!

Late as usual.. I did quite a bit of traveling last month, so we had a hard time meeting up to celebrate Debi's birthday this year.  But we were finally able to get together for lunch and had such a good time catching up!  I guess we were gabbing too much and forgot to take a pix.  Next time!

So I decided to keep with my resolution and use the stuff I have.  I bought the new Jumbo Tim Holtz tattered florals die and wondered when I would ever need a flower that big?!  So here's what I came up with...

Decided to replace the bow with a handmade flower.  That flower is huge!!!  But I like how it came out.  Cut about 6 of the largest flower and made a rose with it following Rosanna's tutorial.  Check it out- you can use smaller flowers too.  Love the results and how easy it is to make.  Thanks Rosanna!

Next I finally sat down to make a card.  Not sure why I always struggle with cards nowdays.  But I managed to crank one out before our lunch.  Started with Recollections corrugated cardboard base and distressed it using gesso.

Then I layered using the new Lawn Fawn paper and cut some green cardstock using my PTI die that makes making hills so much easier!

On the green hill, I used my new Walter and Winnie stamps.. I LOVE THEM!!!  Super happy with the results.  Also picked up a similar set by Stampin up that I hope to get to use soon.  Also used the new banner punch that I got from Stampin up and punched out several papers. Strung them on some pink twine I got from the dollar bin at Target (score!).  And the focal point of the card is the two bunnies from the new Mama Elephant set.  So cute!

Finally, I also made her a Happy Meal too.  Decided to keep it simple since the background paper was a little busy.  Stamped up another bunny from Mama Elephant's Up and Away set. I also wanted to try using some of my pocket scrapbooking cards in my other projects, so I pulled one from an American Crafts birthday set and added it to the Happy Meal.

Need to catch up on more birthdays!  Hopefully I will have more projects to share in the near future!
