Flourished Birthday Greetings

I found some time this week to work on my stack of UFOs (unfinished objects). The new challenge is to find time to take photos, edit them and get a blog post up. The other challenge is to keep the cat herd from turning them into cat toys. I’ve come home to find spools of ribbon untwined, cards set out to dry now picked apart or dragged around the house. Anyone with pets, especially cats, can relate that whatever belonging you have in your house is really just a toy for the fur babies. This card started as a card kit, but I had to tweak it a bit.

This flower and the colors remind me of the marigolds at all the greenhouses this time of year.
