What could be more attractive than a wood crate filled with flowers? Only real live flowers in a wood crate! The Wood Words Bundle was one I couldn’t wait to play with. I’m thinking these might be wedding favors for my youngest daughter’s wedding this October. The third year in a row that one of our children is getting married! Our oldest daughter, Courtney married her husband Cyle in October 2015. My son married his wife, Stephanie, in October 2016 and now our youngest daughter, Lindsay will marry Zach this October! The October wedding’s weren’t planned to be the same month, it just worked out that way. We are so pleased with the choices our children made about the person they each want to spend the rest of their lives with. I could write a book about all the things that are good and right about their relationships, so I won’t even get started.
Okay, enough of that, onto the cards! This first one has a color combo that I’ve always loved. Blue and yellow. Dapper Denim is the perfect blue for these So Saffron and Daffodil Delight, (with a little Calypso Coral), flowers, from the Jars of Love stamp set and die cuts.  The happy birthday sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set.

Tranquil Tide, Calypso Coral, Pool Party and a little Lemon Lime Twist are the colors I chose here. This card was part of a Color Combo challenge, as was the card after this one.

Tranquil Tide, So Saffron, Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach fill this wood crate up with color. I fussy cut all the raised flowers on this card, as well as the card above.

How cute is this darling wood crate in 3D?? And paired with the new Daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set! The Hershey Nuggets are wrapped in the new Delightful Daisy dsp.  The center of the flower is a piece of glitter paper punched out with glue from the Fine-Tip Glue pen.

Alison is my youngest daughters best friend, she is also our “bonus daughter”, she doesn’t need another Mom, hers is fabulous…and her Mom is alot of the reason Alison is so fabulous. We just decided to adopt her and her fiance’ into our family, too! My daughter is her Maid of Honor and threw her a Bridal Shower this past Saturday. Of course, I offered to make the favors and Thank you notes!
 Except for the ink, all of these products are now retired or will retire on June first. But look how charming these are!! I’m so glad I got this die cut when I had the chance, which leads me to my point…If there’s a product available that you LOVE, not just love, one you just have to have…well, my vote is to get it, because once it’s retired it’s too late!! I bought this die when my youngest was still in high school. I played with it quite a bit, but never gave any away.  I finally got to make a bunch and give them away! It’s so fun seeing everyone’s delight, not only about the cuteness factor but the  that they get to take one home for themself!

I hope these creations inspire you to not only create something beautiful, but to give it away to someone you care about, to experience the joy of giving from your heart!

Have I told you that I love roses? They are so beautiful and they come in every color imaginable. If I didn’t love card making so much, I would spend a lot more time in my yard. Beautiful plants, especially the flowering ones, are just so joyful!
This die cut and stamp set is simply elegant. I saw this card over and over again on Pinterest and Splitcoaststampers, so I have no idea who the original creator is. I love it’s simplicity. Pool Party and Whisper White card stock are so pretty together.
