FTTC106 Happy Birthday and more!!!

Hello my sweet stampin' friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend? Mine was so so...I came down with a horrible head cold..or what my doctor called the crud! I was pretty much sleeping all day Sunday and Monday...now I'm on medication and hopefully be good as new soon!

Since I'm still not up to speed right now I'm gonna keep this post short.....my cards are for this week is Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC106. Tammy is our host this week and she is challenging us to create a *Birthday* card/creation.





I actually created two birthday cards since I was in need of them. The sentiment is from the Flourishes Many Sentiment Set. I used my new SU Texture Empression Folder, some SU DP, Spellbinder & PTI Dies, some fabbo flowers I received as a gift from my friend Sabrina, some Gray Satin Ribbon, some White Lace and some beautiful Pink Twine I received from my friend Judy's store. Of course I had to bedazzle my cards with some Silver Button, some Silver Pearls (Michael's).

My color are inspired by this weeks beautiful and soft CR84FN16 Color Combo.


Thanks for swing by today! Please make sure to stop by my team members ~ Cindy, Maki, Betty,
Tammy and our awesome February Guest Designer Laura Pryor!!!

Have a wonderful week! Hugs ~S~
