A Special Friend's Birthday Card



I can share this now because my special friend, Danielle, received it already!  I just had to use this cute image from PTI's Vintage Picnic basket; I paper pieced the basket and watercolored the image after stamping it on watercolor paper:


I mounted it on some textured Really Rust cardstock that had been embossed with the Autumn Type folder, then distressed.  The only real embellishment besides the nestie was some twine.  I really loved coloring this in!  So much fun!




I added a little stamped embellishment on the inside as well!


I still have things to share with you from my recent downline meeting!  This is a gift that my downline Laura made:

DSCF5457 A really cute BIG gift bag with all these cute Trendy Trees stamped on it....and look how she stamped the "falling leaves" on the ground using one of the leaf images....soooo cute and clever!  Inside were a few goodies:






This adorable tablet......


 DSCF5456and some CANDY!  Very cleverly packaged, I might add!!! 






Aren't I the fortunate one????  Thanks for visiting today!

  9. That birthday card is fabulous! The paper-piecing on the basket is perfect! It looks exactly like a metal picnic basket I remember my Grandma having!

    Your Trendy Trees stuff is adorable, too! What fun stuff to come home with!

  10. If you ever make a card that is lopsided and has the wrong colors, as well as a crooked ribbon, would you please photograph it so I can feel better? You're TOO precise!! I can't even fake it! (and I try)

    OOPS! I just spilled coke on my last piece of cardstock.

  11. Your are a fortunate, but so are all the people you have made gifts for. I love the embossing folder. Is it by SU? Does it work in a CB?

  12. Wow, everything is beautiful!
    I love fall cards, the colors, the chill in the air...Already?!
    LOL :-)
    Your friend will be showing off her gifts, I know I would!
