Daisy Patch Birthday

Well, I don't know about you guys, but that was one fast paced, crazy weekend! I did get a few holiday chores completed, so that was good. My tree is up, but I am sure I will add a few more things today. I alternate how I decorate each year, and this year is all of the cute ornaments. My DS helped do the top, since he is 6'3", and he got to put on the angel I use every year, which is from 1927. It was bought for my mom the year she was born. Then I know she is looking down on me, and sharing my holiday mayhem.

Okay, today I have a birthday card that I created using Heartfelt Creation stamps. My dp is from Cosmo Cricket. I then stamped leaves from HCPC 2254 Leafy Swirls PreCut Set with Memento Rich Cocoa ink directly onto the dp. They were colored with YG91 Putty, Copic Marker. The reverse side of my dp is a solid rusty/reddish rose. I used that side to stamp assorted daisies from my HCPC 3318 Daisy Patch Flowers PreCut Set in Versamark. I then added gold detail EP and heated. The centers of my flowers, were colored with Lipstick Red Copic R29, and then covered in Glossy Accents. They were cut and popped over the leaves. My happy birthday is from an EF, since neither of my Heartfelt sets used had a sentiment. The embossing is highlighted with Poppy Parade ink from SU!

I will be entering this in Joan's Gardens 25th Challenge. You must go check it out! There are amazing prizes to be won!

Happy Monday to all! I am out of here, and going to try to get into the Post office parking lot. This is all about timing during the holidays. Wish me luck.....

Didn't even get to the scrapbook/card-making stuff it was so crowded! Just got a few crafty things for the grands and poof! We were gone! Hope your trip to the PO went well, it's CRAZY out there!!
