Ribbon Carousel Seize's the Birthday!

I am So excited I can hardly contain myself.....I signed up for Convention in July....first time going, I don't know what to expect (although my dear friend LeAnne has shared some valuable info...thanks LeAnne) and so here's what's happening so far! My DH and I are escaping town (a well needed vacation for both of us) ~ we are loading the RV and road tripping to Utah ~ road trips are our favourite vacation times ~ once we get to Utah, I have NO idea where to go as I don't have a room booked, don't have a roommate and don't know a soul ~ so I'm on my own! If I don't find a place to stay for convention, Dean will drive me each morning and pick me up late in the evening ~ I hope if this ends up being the outcome, that I won't feel like I missed out on Convention, but sleeping on a park bench, just doesn't sound to comfortable to me! Okay, am I rambling, yup, I think I am...oh, if you are going to convention I'd LOVE to meet you...and if you need a roommate, let me know!
On to my card...I loved the idea at Ribbon Carousel, showers and flowers!
And so I did showers OF flowers for my card!

And at Seize the Birthday #14, they were asking for a feminine birthday card following this sketch!
I had a blast with this and I'm really pleased with the outcome of my card.

We are stuck in the middle of winter here...April 21...are you serious!!!!!
we had our grandson Owen spend the night with us on Friday, so I headed outside with him to shovel some snow off the deck ~ I shoveled, Owen ate!

Thanks so much for stopping by today ~ I hope you have a wonderful day ~ and if you are going to the SU Convention, I sure hope I have an opportunity to meet you!

If you live in Winnipeg or the vicinity and would like to host a party I would love to come and stamp with you and your friends!! Or, if space is an issue, come here and create with me at one of my many clubs or classes! Drop me a line for further info! I'd love to meet you! Enjoy your day!

  2. Oh, another card .....yippee. This is soooo pretty. Great job on the sketch. I love the flowers and the flourish.
    I'm so happy for you that you are going to convention. I will be so anxious to hear all about it. That is something I'd love to go to (even though I know I can't because I'm not a demo)- it sounds like so much fun. We need to talk and set a date soon;)

  3. Woo hoo, Denise! I am so happy that you will be at Convention! We definitely have to meet! I love this fabulous flourish! Such a pretty card!
