I love going to the mailbox at birthday time (tomorrow). These came in the mail on the same day. I hit the jackpot as they are gorgeous!

From Pat in Kentucky. Pat has become a dear friend and she is very talented as you can see. Pat's focal point is the Flower Burst die (pg. 195 IB&C). My apologies to Pat. There was a 2nd leaf/branch going down and I found it on my dining room floor after I took the photo. Oops. How did it come off? I might have been too eager to get this card out of its envelope. Not sure 🙁

Susan from Wisconsin shared her artistry with me using a retired tulip stamp. Very cute and clever "fence" behind it! The butterfly is from Great Friend (pg. 107 IB&C).


Gail, who resides in Washington, created a super darling candy shop theme using Crazy for Cupcakes (pg. 68 IB&C).


Thanks to all these ladies for their submission to my Patterned Pines – Stella's birthday giveaway! Ends tomorrow. Name drawn soon thereafter and I will post the winner's name here.
