Flowers for you!

Hello!! Hope everyones weekend has been a good one so far. I have really done a whole lot but did get a few things accomplished. Not so much in the craft area but other things that needed to be done.

We washed our vehicles last night because it is so hot during the day that you can't get outside to do anything. Then this morning I was really smelling the fires that we have going on here in California. I am sitting out on the patio and noticed that ashes are flying around. We are quite a few miles away but we do have some breezes blowing and that probably is what is bringing the ashes. The fires just seem to be getting bigger and bigger and I read that it they are threatening more homes and 1,000s are being evacuted. I hope the weather starts cooling soon and the firemen can get an upper hand on them.

Now onto the card. This is for my youngest daughter. She is a girly girl. In fact when she was younger I always called her a tomboy. She was right out there ready to do all of things that boys would do. In fact I told her that if I didn't have my son after her she would have been like having a boy. I embossed the background with a cuttlebug folder because it looked like sticks to me. Maybe it will remind her of their hunting shack with the window that shows the flowers in a vase on the inside of the card. Yes, she is a hunter, she has gotten a few deer. I am sure she will be out there again this year. She didn't last year because she was pregnant. She does have a couple of mounts of the antlers in her home that are from the ones she has gotten.

The flowers are from PTI's Autumn Abundance. I love this set. You can color them in so many ways and never tire of it.
The ribbon is PTI's saddle ribbon that I drew up by pulling on the white like you would for a ruffle. I think it gives it a different look and texture. I saw it on Lisa Johnson's blog and thought I would give it a try.

They are colored with copic markers. Her favorite color is green (I think any shade). The vase seems to match the colors in her home.
Happy Birthday Carrie! I know it isn't until next Sunday but I am finally a little ahead and since it has to go in the mail, I don't want it to be late. Hope you have a good one and hope to be seeing and the family very soon!!
Thank you for stopping by today!!
Have a good one,
