Flower Birthday

Is it finally spring? I think we are there now...but that of course brings rain and I am not so sure I like how that mixes with the start of soccer for my son. His first game is tomorrow and it is totally going to rain...and I am pretty sure it only gets canceled if it is lightning. Not sure how it will go if it isn't canceled...we will see. But at least it isn't snow coming down! A little more warmth would be good, but I am trying to be patient.

So I finally got to stamp after a bit of a hiatus as my family went on a trip to Chicago during my son's Spring Break. We had a great time and the kids did great, but I am realizing it has been awhile since I was in my stamping area! So I decided to jump in with the "Get Your Diva On" Verve Stamps challenge. It was a recipe challenge...your recipe is determined by your first name. So hi, my name is Andrea and I need to make a card that is 1) blue, yellow, and cream, 2) has flowers, eyelets and ribbon, and 3) is square shape or has 3 layers. Check, check, and check.

Went for a couple of blues with Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze and I think it technically has more than 3 layers, but it is square so I am good on either way you look at it! It was kind of weird to pull out the eyelets...haven't used them in awhile. Nothing to crazy here so I won't bore you with specifics...ingredient list below!

Here's hoping for lightning in the morning so I don't have to watch Kindergarten soccer in the rain!! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
