Pin It


A Twirly-Whirly Birthday!

Happy Saturday! I went to a crop for 10 hours yesterday and this is the first card I made, yay! I got to play along with the Play Date Cafe Challenge #173. I used my new Stampin' Up! Wishes Your Way set and Pinwheel Sizzlits Die. That die is only $4.95, a great value! I am determined to make more birthday cards, since that's what I always seem to need, that's what people ask to buy from me, and that's what I never have! lol! 

Did I mention this is one of the two cards I completed in 10 hours yesterday?! Doh! But it was still a successful day because it included a zipper flower, coffee, an estate sale, margaritas, and shopping, not necessarily in that order! *wink*

Here's my Maya Roads zipper flower, that was a pain in the a** to make, but now that I know how, I hope the second one is easier (tutorial):

Here's Lori's zipper flower, which is much cuter because she had to be a creative genius that added the shredded tulle ribbon to hers: 

Which inspired me to go back to the buy this for my next attempt (I'm thinking Mother's Day!)

Lori also made this beautiful flower I thought I'd share. She worked HARD for this one, in that she had to wage war with a die cut machine to cut her canvas fabric, but she was the victor:

Lastly, here is my big estate sale purchase. Estate sales kind of freak me out, but I did manage to buy these tin cups, which may end up in Lisa Pace style ornaments. Actually, Lori bought them for me because I didn't have any cash! ha! Lori scored the better tin cups and other items, because she is an estate sale Ninja. 

Okay, time to go face the reality of unpacking all the crop bags! hehe! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

I am so not a social crafter. Put me anywhere outside of my craft room and I accomplish nothing. Love the card you ended up with ... those clouds are so fun! And so in love with your zipper flower! I bought a ton of vintage zippers at a flea market this summer and have yet to get to them. One of these days : ) Great post!
