Birthday Greetings with summer flowers

I finally had some time to play today so I actually have two cards that I posted - wow - I know that's it's been awhile since I've done that.  Here is a wonderful summer birthday sentiment from TLC, Create.  I made an easel card, which is one of my favorite designs.  I bought some new Prima flowers....just don't tell my Dad who complains about how many craft supplies that I have, lol.  I just could't help myself with the blue flowers.  Later today, I will be driving back to my hometown since it's my brother's birthday to have dinner with him and celebrate with my family.

I made a CAS card which is difficult for me.  I couldn't decide if I wanted a new home or anniversary so I didn't put a sentiment on the front and figured I would add one to the inside.  I loved the MFT color challenge so I added that too.  I haven't had a lot of time for crafting so this was a lot of fun for me. I was cutting my grass today and I noticed that I had a large box at my front door. One of my past DT friends, Audrey,  was so generous to send me lots of goodies and I was shocked.

I need a vacation

Today is Humor Me Wednesday at Bugaboo and I made a Bugaboo card using Stella Vacation.  I put Glossy Accents on her sunglasses, drinks and beach ball.  On June 15th is Flip Flop day and that is what I made the card in honor of.
My parents finally had their 50th Anniversary Party celebration this past weekend. It was a wonderful and the weather was perfect.  I included some pictures.

I made a card for my brother.  He is my only sibling and I adore him greatly.  My parents are having their 50th Anniversary Party this weekend and I am looking forward to special time with him.  This card is for his birthday and Father's Day.  The image is from Bugaboo and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  The image is this weeks Friday Freebie know as AKV BBQING so grab it while you can.  My brother does a lot of the grilling/cooking when we have a meal at my parents and he does an incredible job.

I love sunflowers. They are so bright and cheery. I made this card using the Verve Sketch for May. I kept it generic because I had a request for some blank cards.
