Woo Hoo! 50 & Fabulous!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! We had a very nice day. All three of my guys managed to get off of work and we enjoyed a nice brunch here with family and lots of yummy food. Everyone loved the little milk carton totes filled with candy that I made for them. On Saturday night we went to a surprise birthday party for my SIL. We had a great time! This is the card I made for her.

I was inspired to use the owl from Fox & Friends along with a greeting using the Billboard Alphabet from  this adorable card made by my talented friend Renee. Of course Lori wasn't really woo hoo-ing about turning 50, but she did love the card. Here's a peek at the inside...
I'm sure this sentiment made her feel better! ;-) I originally had created a really cute panel for the inside using MDS, but when I went to print it, our colored ink cartridge was so low that it printed out an awful yellowy green. So I had to resort to printing it in black ink. Here is how I wrapped her gift.
I used some retired DP paper that I had, I think the pack was called Walk in the Park. Using the Daisies #2 die I made the flower and then added a large rhinestone to the center. I thought it turned out pretty cute and it saved me from running to the store when I realized I had forgotten to buy wrapping.

Thanks for stopping by...enjoy your day!
