Patchwork Birthday Wishes

Good morning everyone....hope you are all staying cool!!! It is sooo hot here that I think we could fry eggs on the sidewalk...LOL!!!! We don't have any rain in out forcast so I'm sure we will go into water rationing....I just hate to see the grass turn brown. I may have to buy some green spray paint...LOL!!! Anyway....

I made this card yesterday for the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast. Holly challenged us to use a patchwork on our card. I used papers from Pink Paislee's Butterfly Gardens and the Happy Birthday Square from Rubbernecker. Sewing was done around the blocks and Primas, seam binding, twine, lace, and a Spellbinder's die finish it off. This is also for the Shabby Tea Room's challenge to use pink, green and flowers.

Thanks for visiting today....hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!!!!

Beautiful card, love the patchwork, quilt look with the stitching. Gorgeous. Our lawn is turning brown in spots and my poor flowers keep wilting, can't seem to keep them wet enough, not to mention the pool, it gets hot and the water level is always going down.

Beautiful card....love all the detail you put into it....the flowers are gorgeous too. I know what you mean about it being hot. I live in the South where it is hot AND humid. :) I have to water all those flowers I planted in the spring (when it was cool and seemed like a good idea....wink)....now in this heat...I do it in my swimsuit in the afternoons. Thank goodness our backyard is private. :)
