Happy Birthday....May 2018 Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink

Hello Friends,
Long time no blog....seriously I have been taking a break from all things crafty for some reason...just haven't felt like, nor had the energy for creating AT ALL!  Not normal for me my crafty friends.  However as spring arrived my love of gardening got me out of doors and perked me up.  I love the spring months here in the Pacific Northwest! It is my favorite time to play in my garden.  This year I am adding additional blueberry bushes to my blueberry patch as well as a couple of new floribunda rose bushes.  All of my roses are opening this week and my yard smells like heaven!  Plus I love watching for humming birds drinking from my clematis and the last of my tulips.  Nature is so rejuvenating and rewarding - one of God's greatest daily blessings!

I have several birthdays to celebrate with family and friends over the weekend so I finally entered my craft room and made two cards tonight!  It has been too long since I made a card...LOL!  I might have forgotten how!

Just kidding....

For inspiration tonight I looked at the photo for the May 2018 Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink.

My card below was inspired by the wood trim on the camper and the pale pink lanterns:

Stamps:  You've been framed: oval - Papertrey Ink
Ink:  Fine Linen, Enchanted Evening - Papertrey Ink
Cardstock:  Spring Rain, Sweet Blush, Kraft - Papertrey Ink
Dies:  You've been framed die set: Papertrey Ink;  Sew Sweet Valentine Die Set by Tammy Tutterow for Spellbinders for the felt leaves.
Other:  Embossing folder, Paper Studio Flowers - Hobby Lobby; Copic Marker, digital paper

The other card I made is for my friend Sally's 60th birthday tomorrow!  We are going to a lovely party for her!  I will share that card with you after I give it to her. 

Have a lovely Memorial Day Weekend!  We are so blessed by all of our service men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom!  God Bless them and their families and friends who miss them every day!
