Sunny Card!

At the end of last summer, our lawnmower died, so we decided we would get a new one this year.  Well, this year is here and we haven’t bought a new one yet.  Of course, the lawn was looking rough last week (to put it nicely), so we borrowed a mower to at least knock the grass down to a reasonable level until we could go get a mower.  Then, last night I got a text message saying “Keep the mower, we got a new one”!  Thank you Lord for the blessing of a new mower for FREE!  So…I decided to make a thank you card.  And it had to have grass on it, of course.

For the card base, I used Birthday Bash.  I love this card shape.

The tree is from Simply Charmed.  I added some purple buttons instead of cutting the flowers that go with it.  The clouds and sun came from Create A Critter.

I cut the grass from Plantin Schoolbook.  The stamp is from the dollar bin at Michaels and I put it on pop dots to make it stand out.

I’m really happy with this card.  It looks really bright and cheery in person.  The pics don’t do the colors justice. 

One last thing…..the giveaway!!  I want to say thanks to all of you who entered.  I feel truly blessed to be able to share my creations with you through my blog and am so thankful for you guys!  Chosen randomly, the winner is….
