A SPECIAL SWEET 16 BIRTHDAY CARD


My dear nephew turned 16 this year so I knew it required a special card to mark the occasion. Since he'd be getting his drivers license soon, a car stamp just fit the bill. What's better than Snoopy driving Woodstock around in a convertible?  I added a tape measure stamped on gold and colored a cardstock buckle to frame his age. Of course I mailed it with confetti inside to his surprise!

FOR THE LOVE OF DAY LILIES

This year was my first time seeing some of these day lilies bloom in my yard.  Alot of these I purchased and planted last year from various day lily farms.  

 I have to say I am not a bit disappointed in my selections.
One is more unique than the other.
 I found it very hard to even pick a favorite...
 This one reminds me of a delicate paper flower made from tissue paper when I was a teenager.
 The lilac and purple colors are very hard to find - I am trying to add them to my collection.
If I had to guess I'd say I have 40 or 50 different ones - I try to add 5 or 10 every year.
Stayed tuned for more to come!
