A Birthday Daughter Far Across the Miles!

My daughter, Michele, celebrates her birthday at the very end of June.  She is far, far away on the East coast and is planning a girlfriend birthday bash in Las Vegas to make it a birthday to remember.  I hope she has a GREAT time!!  

This is my daughter that loves to cook and is exceptionally good at it!  To be invited to dine at her table is always a treat that I looked forward to.  Now that she lives in West Virginia, I miss not only her company, but her lovely meals as well!  So, with this thought in mind, I thought I would make a card with cooking as its theme!  I found a little apron die from Cottage Cutz that I thought would do the trick. . .I hope she loves her card!!

Recipe:  Papers: Darice-Krafty cardbase; Georgia Pacific-White cs; Fancy Pants-Time-O-Spring/Gingham Dress (multi-color plaid); MME-So Sophie/Pretty Girl (SU-Wild Wasahbi sponged); Jillibean-Coconut Lime Soup (green gingham); Melissa Frances-Cherry; Gooseberry Patch-Cookbookin/Pantry (canister border); Ruby Rocket-Cook/ Medley (bingo card/ computer re-sized); DCWV rose mini dot. Dies: Cottage Cutz-Apron; Lifestyles-Scalloped Squares. 5/8" Green-yellow organdy ribbon (stash). SU Calypso Coral flower button. May Arts jute twine. Becca's Bowmaker. Edges distressed with Colorbox Chestnut Roan Cat Eye. 3D foam tape; glue gun; Scotch tape runner.


  1. Adorable!! That apron is so cute!! And look at those layers on the side...a great design!!!

  2. Thanks Char! Had to tweak the apron pattern a bit, as it was too pale when I finished, so out came the Copics...matched to the BINGO card. Was happy with result. Enjoy your cruise!
