Happy Birthday Sunflowers card



There's nothing like some cheerful sunflowers to brighten up a cold winter day.  I stamped these flowers a couple months ago and finally got around to coloring them as a break between Valentine's Day cards.  I see Clearly Besotted also has a pansy stamp...I need that one to brighten my day.  I dotted a variety of colors to make up the seeds in the center.

You're Tea-rrific card



I made this card recently for an Instagram friend to thank her for her encouragement on my cards.  She makes excellent cards so it's always fun to get inspired from her creations.  I added in some tea packets since we both live up in the cold north part of the world.  These little mice are so cute.  I stuck to soft colors and made all my mice the same color, unlike the packaging they came with.
