Happy Birthday Sunflowers

Evening all! Trying to get caught up on my sleep from this past weekend. My friends wedding turned out absolutely beautiful! I truly enjoyed spending time with great friends and family!

So, I'm back in my craftroom and it feels great! Plus this weekend I will be going to an all day crop to try and finish more pages of my wedding album, exciting!

I have lots of birthday's coming up, so I'd thought I'd get a jump start on some birthday cards! Am also trying to use my Cricut & Gypsy more... not sure why I ever put it down! So much fun!

Here's a birthday card I made for a sweet friend of mine:

The sunflower cut comes from the lovely Country Life cart and was cut on my Gypsy at 3 1/2" tall. If you don't have this cart, it is certainly a must! So many cute images on it!

As always, hope ya'll enjoy! And don't forget to enter my challenge... just a little over a day left!

Re-finished Dresser

The hubby and I finally finished redoing a dresser we got a few months back. And in other news, my sweet friend had her baby and he is oh so cute! Got to go the hospital and see that little man today!

This is how we bought the dresser and what we started with:

Then we sanded it with an electric sander:

And here's the final product, which we painted with a cream coat, then
stained it with a red mahogany and clear coated it:

Hope ya'll enjoy! My next challenge will start on the 16th so check back soon!
