Birthday Card - Heart 2 Heart Bingo Challenge

I managed to squeeze in a few hours in my craft room yesterday, the first time in far too long. I created a birthday card for the Heart 2 Heart challenge this week, as well as for the current Clean & Simple sketch using the colours at Color Throwdown.

This weeks Heart to Heart challenge is to create a project using products as outlined in the Bingo card below. Use three items found in a row, I chose Flowers / Border Punch / Buttons. The 8 petalled flowers are hand made using paper from the Wings collection and Unforgettable (retired). No punches were used to make the flowers (one was used for the leaves).

Here is the sketch from Clean & Simple :

Life - "1" Creativity - "0"

Hi everyone, I have had a few people express concerns that I hadn't posted in a while so I thought I should leave a quick note. All is well, however, computer problems, having to be out of town for a while and family obligations have kept me out of my craft room for almost 3 weeks (yikes!). I hope to start creating and posting again soon.

Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather. Have a great day!
