  Hello my creative friends, Today I have a card I created in honor of all those men and women gave their lives for our freedom. My card is a twisted easel with Spellbinders Petite Picot Oval and a basket full of Susan's Garden Club Lily of the Valley from her Spring Floral release.  I wove a small basket from some leftover chair caning that I had and used a small flag removed from a stick and folded to fit basket rim. S usan's Lily of the Valley was cut 5 times shaped and assembled using Susan's Specialty Cardstock.  Leaves were cut from green cardstock 5 times giving you 10 leaves.  They were shaded and shaped using Susan's Deluxe Tool Set. Card base was 6" X 6" with front panel scored diagonally fold on score line into mountain fold.  Patterned paper was cut 5-3/4" square adhered to inside of card and card front using clear double sided adhesive.  On front panel I made sure to put adhesive on each side of diagonal score line as close as possible

Hello Friend w/Forget Me Nots & Ferns

Welcome my crafty friends, Today I have for you a card I created for a friend from my childhood she use to come to stay with her Gram who lived up the street from us.  We haven't seen each other in at least 55- 60 years and recently met up - what fun it was to reminisce and catch up on each others lives. I used a retired Susan's Garden Forget Me Not die set and Spellbinders Susan's Garden Club Ferns die set.  The Ferns and Forget Me Nots were chosen for this card from one of our childhood memories in which we got into trouble for picking these items. Card is 4-1/2"X 5-3/4" White Cardstock was cut 4-1/4 X 5-1/2 Spellbinders Diamond Lace Frame Cut and Emboss was used on this piece.  Colored cardstock was cut just slightly smaller than embossed piece.  Attach to back of embossed piece using Bearly Art Glue.  Attach to card front using clear double sided adhesive. The mason jar was created from Shrinky Dink Film colored with Copic markers and shrunk in oven.  Bearly A

Pink Lily of the Valley on Mini Pizza Box

Welcome all you crafty friends, Today my creation is a mini pizza box adorned with pink lily of the valley.  Susan Tierney-Cockburn did the pizza box on her Susan's Garden Club "Live" so of course it was so cute I wanted to try it.  Simple and fun to create.   To create box Susan has directions on her blog If you want decorative paper inside box as I have you will need to cut 4 instead of 2 pieces 3-3/4" squares and add them before constructing the box. Susan's Garden Club Spring Flora Lily of the Valley die set was used to create flowers - I created 3 from Susan's Specialty Cardstock leaves and stems from green cardstock.  Susan's Deluxe Tool Kit was used for shaping flowers and leaves.. Kids Choice Glue was used to adhere some leaves first then the 3 stems of flowers then a few more leaves.  A small pink bow was attached at base of bouquet using
