Hope everyone is having a great weekend! It's been hot and windy here the last few days and we've had some bad brush fires impacting us.  Fortunately, the fire has passed us but it was pretty scary  knowing that it was so close by.  The air quality has not been great due to the winds and all the ashes blowing in the air.  Our Baseball games have been cancelled and my kids were disappointed that they were stuck inside the classrooms at school as well last week. 

Here's a pic showing the view from our house a few days ago...



However, this weekend seems better and hopefully things will go back to normal soon.  I heard it might actually rain this week sometime which would be good but talk about crazy weather!!! LOL
Anyways, I was able to get a card together for my friend's birthday and I wanted to share that for the blog hop!

And here is my card....


I wanted to use one of my new favorite stamps from The Greeting Farm and this one is called Anya Blooms!  You might have seen her on my blog in the beginning of March. I was so excited to be part of the TGF Guest Design Team to showcase the March release.  When I saw this image, I just really loved her and couldn't wait to use her on my cards and projects.  I had made a few cards and my friend also really loved this image.  So I decided to use Anya Blooms for my friend's birthday card!  I used her favorite colors green and orange which is not a combo I usually use but I had a lot of fun trying these colors out and making this card.  I colored up Anya using my copic sketch markers.  I paper pieced her dress and the collection I used for this as well as  the background is by My Mind's Eye called Reunion.  edged all of my papers with Tim Holtz distress ink in Spiced Marmalade.  I placed Anya on some layered Spellbinders called Lacey Ovals.  The large orange daisy  was created using some plain white petals from I Am Roses.  I colored these up with my Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Apricot.  I added a white pearl center given to me in a RAK by a friend.  The green flowers are from Michael's dollar bin and the small flowers are from a Recollections flower jar I've had forever.  I was so glad to finally use these!  The bling is also from Recollections. The sentiment "Cheers to You" is from another TGF stamp set called Blush Beatrice.  I stamped this on a handmade banner using memento ink in Black Tuxedo.  

Please be sure to check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to find crafting supplies used on this project.  Also check out the Loves Rubberstamps blog to see design team projects as well as information on prizes and winnings!

Hope you all like my card and thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!:)
