Rummage Birthday!

This is another birthday card that I am putting in the order for my neighbour....

Still using the gorgeous Kim Hughes set 'Nature's Silhouettes' from Cornish Heritage Farms along with 'Beautiful' Stamp Set from THE RUMMAGE BIN and 'Script Essential Expressions' .

I stamped the images all with ink from Papertrey Ink - Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist, Spring Moss, and Lemon Tart.

I used my blender pen to "paint" in a brighter colour with Summer Sunrise - also from Papertrey Ink - on the yellow daisy on the left hand side.

On the Lemon Tart Cardstock, I stamped the Pretty Pattern background only half way up to give it a subtle change from a plain piece of cardstock.

I roughed up the edges of the "Father's Knows Best" patterned paper and Aqua Mist cardstock - both from Papertrey Ink -with my Heidi Swapp distresser after stamping the images.

I glued both pieces onto the cardbase and added a prima flower with a blingy brad!

I like the spring-y-ness of this card - nice and bright - makes me happy!!
I took my son to the dental surgeon today! He has been suffering from bottom wisdom teeth yuckiness! for the past week so he finally went to the dentist who put him on antibiotics and said "get to the specialist!!"

So I took him today in case they yanked them out right there in the chair and he wouldn't have been able to drive home! But instead they scheduled him for surgery on all four wisdom teeth next week.

I don't envy him at all. I have never had it done but my brother did, and I remember that dog and pony show-- whew!!

Tuesday's are math class for Holly, so I most likely won't be posting tomorrow!


  1. Very pretty card Bonnie! I don't envy your son either....good luck! Have a nice day!

  2. What a neat mix of elements...great card!

  3. Oh my, this is wonderful! I love all of the images and colors - they come together beautifully!

  4. Wow! You're doing a fabulous job on your cards, Bonnie! It looks as though you're enjoying yourself at the same time, what could be better?!! Great blog.. I'll be reading it again :)
