Happy Birthday!!

Happy Monday Everyone!!
I am so glad to have survived the weekend...

Thursday was my husbands birthday...Happy Birthday Babe!!!

This is the b-day card I made for Roy,
my friend Karen gave me a piece of this really cool
sticky back metal sheet
that already had this awesome patina all over it,
and I used one of her vintage truck stamps with black staz-on ink to
stamp the image onto the metal sheet
 then used some grey card stock along with the
new My Mind's Eye Portobello Road paper collection
and some Tim Holtz gears to create his card

Then friday was spent adding the finishing touches to the decorations for my Mother-in-laws 90th Birthday party.  I was in charge of decorations and wanted to Upcycle and here is what I decided to make...

these "flower bouquets" were made using vegetable cans that were spray painted,

here is the cute card box that I created for her
It's a Flower Pot!!!
The theme was "Shades of Blue"
but she also LOVES flowers so I went with that...
