Secret Garden from a Friend

Thanks Big Time

Button Buddies

Express your appreciation with a card.  Today's card is for my son, Jeremiah, and my DIL, Bethany and grandson, Grady.  We recently visited them in Texas.  The occasion was Grady's first birthday.  It was such a joy to see Grady take some of his first steps.


Robin's Card Tips
  • Riding Hood Red Card Stock for both my card and my envelope was embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder giving it a barn "look".
  • The "stitching and scallop" across the top is easily accomplished with the Needlepoint Border embossing folders from the Occasion Catalog (Good through May 31)
  • To add to that country feel, I added Natural  7/16" Trim Ribbon and Denim Jean Ribbon (bow).
  • It's only natural to use buttons with the Button Buddies stamp set.  Mr. Piggy would be lost without his wood button nose.

What Colors will you miss most with the Color Refresh?  I always enjoy hearing from you.  Leave your thoughts in the comments of this post.   The colors that I will miss most would be the classic barn red of Riding Hood Red and the dusty blue of Baja Breeze.  Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze also look great together.
