Bee-U-Tiful Birthday Card for Grandma!

Hello everyone!!!!  I'm still here, ha ha!  It's been so hard for me to post, but I have made a lot of things, taken pictures of all of them, AND wrote down the directions for making them...  they've just never been posted...  So much has been happening, especially seeing as it's been a year since I posted last!  One big thing that my husband and I did was move.  It's still in my same little town, but we are in love with our new house!  We hope it will be our forever home, but it was still a little bittersweet to let the old house go.  It's also been weird crafting in a new space, but I think I've got the hang of it!  I told my hubby that I really, REALLY want to start crafting more and posting on my blog again!  Hopefully he'll let me slip away from his side occasionally, so that I can accomplish that goal!  :)  Anywho, it felt really good to make this card and find some challenges that I can enter it into, so here it goes...

Pile it On- stitching
Simple Create Too- be funny (or in this case, punny)
Seize the Birthday- birthday card
D.L. Art Thankful Thursday Challenge- anything goes
Bitten by the Bug 2- bulb flowers (I used tulips)

 4" square card

Walk in my Garden- tulips cut at 3.71"
Wedding- banner cut at 1.24"
Cuttlebug- swiss dots
Hero Arts Stamps- birthday messages

That's all folks!  Thank you so much for stopping by, and I really do hope to see you again soon!  :)

Indeed a cute birthday card for your grandma. I bet she loved it a lot. My grandmother love such crafts. Planning to host a crafty party on her 70th birthday at a party venue NYC. Hoping to accomplish everything within budget.
