Happy Birthday Joyce!!!

Today is the birthday of a very special friend of mine, Joyce. She is a constant ray of sunshine and simply makes my day whenever she stops by my blog.  

I wanted to create something a little extra special for her.

I made a sort of tri-fold card. The front of the card is supposed to look like the inside of a house with wallpaper. You look through the window outside to see the butterfly and cattails.

Once you open the card, you can see the butterfly and cattails better and.... reveals the Birthday message....

Opened all the way, you see another message and some more cattails, a flower and butterfly.


I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of love and time spent with family and friends!! XOXO

Here are the rest of the ladies who also joined in the Birthday Blog Hop. Stop by their blogs, 
you won't want to miss what they created!!

A different kind of post today

Once upon a time, I wanted to start a blog where I would show my crafty and cheap home decor items. I think it lasted one whole month before I just got too busy. And I never returned to it. You can see it here:

Fast forward 18 months and the bug bit me again. So I started perusing Craigslist. I found this solid wood dresser on Craigslist for $50. Kind of pricey, but I liked the design and really needed the drawers to help organize my home. So I grabbed it up!



After a few coats of white paint and some primer it is transformed. I spray painted the handles a nice blue. I know it's kind of different looking, but I need to put blue in my house any way I can get since dh won't let me paint any walls blue. ;-)

I am super happy with it and it's so much nicer than what has been in the foyer for years.
(This boring Ikea sofa table.)
Our dog has a balloon in his mouth, by the way. And the girls were chasing him. Fun times.

Thanks for stopping by!

I will have a new card on here this weekend. I missed stamping!!!
