Flowers she said

January 17, 2012

I asked my 6 (or is she turning 7?!) year old niece, what she wanted for her birthday.  “Flowers, Aunt J.  I want flowers.”

So I am sending her a stitched card that I made.  The chart/directions was a freebie from StitchingCards.com

That I stitched on white card stock.  I also used the paper trimmer that Hubby got me for Solstice to make the inside of the card nice too.

I am also sending her some of the rose pictures that I took of my wedding anniversary bouquet from my Hubby along with money to buy some frames so that she can hang them in her room.  Looking at these pictures, I can still smell their wonderful scent…

Additionally, as a pick me up for my sister, I made a bracelet.  I hope Sis likes it.

All but the spacers are actual stone beads: pink quartz, moss agate or a dyed green quartz, malachite, rhodochrisite and fluorite.
