WEEK ENDING - JULY 15, 2012
Daughter, Michele, celebrates her birthday today! I had to get my creative juices flowing to make her a special birthday card that said, "Yes, this card was made especially for Michele!" For the past year, I've been thinking about making a card for her using a vintage seed packet, depicting gardening, because she so likes to work in her yard. She has been wanting to plant some roses...especially Mr. Lincoln (a blood red with a delicious smell) to commemorate her late Grandfather Bill, his favorite. But with their move to West Virginia in the near future, that will have to wait three years until their return as roses need careful tending here with all our rain and cool weather! But meanwhile, her new rhododendron garden is looking beautiful...so fitting here in the northwest where they grow wild! Here is her card that evolved from perking slowly for almost a year...LOL!
Happy Birthday, Michele...enjoy!
