Happy Birthday!

Good Morning fellow crafters! It is hard to believe we are back at Thursday again but here we are and I get to be your hostess over at 4 Crafty Chicks. We would love it if you hopped on over and played with us this week.

Birthday cards are always in need, so I thought why not challenge everyone to a birthday card.  It can be girlie, boyish, masculine, bright, elegant, textured and oh so much more.  On Sunday my dad turned 83 and last Thursday was my grandma turned 92.  We have a few more birthdays this month too and quite a few anniversaries.
Challenge #142
My Grandma loves to garden and truly she has a green thumb.  She grows the best veggies and has some of the best fruit.  Her flowers are just stunning. Every spring she looks so forward to getting out into her garden.  My dad also loves to garden but this particular card is going to my grandma, for I always loved eating strawberries out of the berry patch.  Unfortunately, I don't have a green thumb but I do soooooooo appreciate the beautiful flowers and great fresh food.

Here is card #1, it is made with all Stampin Up products.
 Here is a second card with some pearls, I am partial to the top one but I hope you like both.
 I would love to enter my card into Make It Monday - Anything Goes

It is another crazy week here for me as always watching the clock and running to appointments during the day, with a little bit of time here at home to get stuff accomplished and then off to activities in the evening. Today is no exception but it will be a good day. Can you believe that we are half way done May?  The time is going by so fast, only a month in a half until school is done.  So whatever you are doing, may it be filled with sunshine, smiles and joy!

We would love it if you hopped on over to 4 Crafty Chicks and played with Leanne, Lori, Melissa and I.  It is always so much fun coming to see your blogs.

Have an amazing day and thank you for stopping in.
