Happy Birthday!




Hello everyone...Hope you are having a great Saturday!!! My hubs left at 4:00 this morning to go fishing....that's a bit early for me!! I would get up at 4:00 AM to stamp but not to fish...LOL!!!  Anyway....

Today's project features the  3x4 Pockets and Pages Circle Showcase die from Taylored Expressions. Several TE Little Bits dies were also used: Little Bits Watermelon, Little Bits Sun and Clouds, Little Bits Flowers and Stems



The Circle Showcase die was used to cut the frame out of two shades of blue card stock. It was also used to cutout the sun and the Little Bits Watermelon die was used to cut the mouth and eyes. The Little Bits Flowers and Stems dies were used with several different colors of card stock to create the little garden and the clouds were cut with the Little Bits Cloud dies and popped up with foam dots. The TE Grass Border die was used for the grass and the sentiment is from the Taylored Expressions Sunflower Bouquet stamp set ......the twine and enamel dots finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by...have a fabulous weekend!!!!
