Flowers & Twine

Happy Tuesday!  Thanks SO MUCH to every one of you who left such sweet birthday wishes on my blog, along my birthday hop, on Facebook and in email.  You all brighten my world!  True to form, my husband spoiled me with lots of birthday loot.  I got a new cartridge for my Slice, along with the hands-free collar for it that I'm anxious to test out.  Plus there's an SU! order on its way to me, rounding out my wishlist.  There hasn't been much chance to stamp, though.  After all, how can a girl stamp when there's flowers to sniff...

Notice the pink straws and fake strawberries poking out from the top???  It's a strawberry margarita bouquet!  And it's HUGE!  LOL  Makes me laugh every time I walk by it!  Here's the shot of the full vase (sorry about the poor lighting). 

This morning when I came down the stairs, the flowers reminded me of this card I made for one of the TCP Tuesday challenges and hadn't gotten around to posting yet. So here you go.  It's for the TCP118 challenge to use twine.  The crafting is pretty straight forward, so I'll just leave you with the picture and the recipe.  Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
