Flowers, Flowers, Everywhere Flowers blog hop

Flowers, flowers, everywhere flowers...Don't you just love flowers? They bring color and beauty along with fragrance to our world and that is why this hop is celebrating them in all their glory. Hop along to see how the crafty people in our line up have used flowers in and on their projects.

Our Hostess for this hop is Lissa Marie and her site is the place to start if you've happened upon this hop by accident and want to see more pretty flowers. Otherwise continue on and enjoy all the color and beauty of flowers everywhere.

For my project today I made a birthday card.  Well actually 8 birthday cards, all a little different.  We have a "birthday luncheon" at work and celebrate 4 months of birthdays at one luncheon.  Usually it isn't four months, but we were behind and had to catch up one month.  There were 8 co-workers, one a guy, we had to celebrate.  I made all the birthday cards with flowers, butterflies, etc. like pictured here, except the one for the male co-worker, his was embossed birthday presents across the bottom.

So here it is:

I had picked up these pre-made card bases, probably at Michaels, awhile ago and had no idea how to cover them so they sat.  I pulled them out for this hop thinking I needed to use them with flowers somehow and boing!  the idea hit me to simply stamp them with Versamark and cover them in Perfect Pearls.  Now why didn't that idea come to me months and months ago?  Well I was just recently introduced to Perfect Pearls during a lunch time run to a local stamp store LOL.

Thank you for stopping by today. This is a two day hop with two projects to share for each person participating so please come back tomorrow to see more flowers. Now continue on to Jearise to see what wonderful projects she has come up with!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy scrappin!

      Hi Liz ...
      I always smile when I visit your blog. I love the images and frenzy, it is SO me! Your card is very pretty -- wow, 8 cards! I was just wondering something ... your card base at Michael's: did it have the die cut (or whatever) on the front, or did you do that? I just want to know so I can go on a search for some! They'd take the stress out of lining the dies up straight for perfect use. BUT if they didn't, I'm thinking I can use my other dies (e.g., circles) to make something similar.

      Thank you for being such a fun part of this special group with me!

      What cute cards. I would have looked at the card bases and thought about them for a while too. I like how they turned out for you.
