Happy Birthday Field Flowers Tuesday Treat

Hi all. Oh what a day. Wow, yesterday I said I liked rain and what happened around the country was devastating. High winds in southern Minnesota and almost tornado like winds in the south and then earth quakes today in Mexico. My gosh the weather is crazy everywhere. Warm up here and cold south which is very strange for up here. My heart goes out to anyone that had damage. 

My cell phone had died last night and I couldn't unlock it to answer it so I took off to where I could get it fixed an hour away from me. I just made it t shopping trip and I had to go to pick up my taxes anyway so it was a day of driving and when I was on my way I got a call from my dentist to say my checkup was tomorrow so today I drove south and tomorrow I will drive north. It makes me tired so I don't get much done. Does driving do that to you too? 

I wanted to share another card from my party last weekend. My hostess wanted a female birthday so this is what I came up with and I thought it came out so purdy, how about you?  It just made me happy and I hope the person to receive my card thinks the same. Above shows you how to use the 2-1/2' circle punch to make a tag. Since I can't do videos this is the best I can do. You just slide it in from the back making sure it is put in evenly into the bottom of the punch and then slide your card stock into the slit of the punch where it cuts. Walla, you have a curved tag. Isn't it just too darling?

  1. I like the tip about rounding the tag top with the large circle and also love your coloring on the field flowers!
