The Greeting Farm's Flowery Farm Fresh Friday challenge!

Today is Farm Fresh Friday at the Greeting Farm, one of my favorite blogs. The challenge was to make a card using flowers and at least one butterfly. It was the perfect opportunity to break out my brand-spankin'-new Butterfly Wishes set from the Greeting Farm:

I used SU! cardstock, ink, punches, and gemstone brads - the background paper is by Die Cuts With a View (DCWV).

Next up is another card I've made with the Greeting Farm's Hope & Grace Peace. I've got a ton of this paper, which I love. I love this color scheme - so you've seen some cards made with this before and I am sure you'll see more. :o)

And this one is made with CC Designs Swiss Pixie Gretel:

Yesterday was Trevor's 16th birthday. Today was my day off and we were supposed to go to the beach, but Mother Nature did not cooperate. So we rescheduled for Sunday and I stamped today instead. Trev got a longboard skateboard, a new cell phone, candy and snacks, some Microsoft points for his XBOX 360 Live, cash, and my sister is taking him shopping for sneakers/clothes tomorrow. My parents cooked him a swordfish (his favorite) yesterday, and I bought him his own personal cheesecake, along with a key lime pie for the rest of the family. Tonight, we are getting roast beef sandwiches and yummy chicken fingers from one of Trev's favorite restaurants. We don't have birthDAYS around here, we have birthday-weeks or birthday-months (I get a birthday month... hee hee - the kids and hubby get a week if they are good). :o) By the way, my birthday month starts in 8 days. I love my birthday - it's August 6, and I would not be against having lots of birthday love in the form of comments, hint hint hint... ;o)
