Flowers in Winter

 Who doesn't love receiving flowers in winter time, it just perks you up and makes you think of spring that will be arriving soon, and what better time to feel good then on your birthday.  I have been gifted with some lovely items from fellow cardmakers and I am going to try and use them at least once a month if not more in my cards this year.  These flowers and buttons were given to me. The top left flower I added a paper flower I had left over from another project between the felt flower and button.

  • Flowers, buttons and gifted to me
  • Lilybee design - Head over heels paper
  • PPD - Stitched Mini scallop borders die
  • Vellum
  • Papercraft inspirations - Greetings stamp set
  • Spellbinders - Back to basics tags die
  • Bazzill Brad
  • Gems

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Cute, fuzzy flower petals, and darling button faces! Connie, I just noticed your blog headers and... BRRRRRRR COLD! Snow is so lovely when it is crisp and clean, and so icky after it's been "used" LOL Thanks for sharing! hugs, de

It's so nice to catch up with you dear Connie! I've missed blogland and your wonderful creations. 😊 I LOVE this one as I'm already half dreaming of flowers and the Spring season ahead. I know I'll be buried in snow for a while yet...but I still dream away! Lol
I hope you have a blessed rest of your week! xoxo

Those are some gorgeous flowers and buttons. I have been trying to put all the craft goodies from other crafty friends in my tote and I try to use one item a week from that tote. It is rewarding when I can use up something that a fellow crafter sent me to use because they thought of me and took the time to send it to me. I can't wait to see other creations you make with your crafty goodies.

But what an original idea! With the junction of the button, felt and paper, it resulted in a beautiful card.
