Happy Birthday Delaney!

This card was long over due! Delaney turned 1 back in April but we had not gotten together. Made this with the Cricut Alphalicious cartridge, it is 5.25 inches square. And, very similar to the cards I've been making for Micaela's friends that are turning 4. The butterfly embellishment is actually made of wood. Looking back at this, I probably should have made the top layer of the 1, cameo coral instead.
Here's the card open.
Thanks for stopping by......

Gardening Tip: Use Mulch

Use mulch in your garden. A layer of mulch helps soil hold moisture, so you water less. Organic mulches break down over time and enrich the soil. Mulch also cuts down on weeds. We've purchased quite a few truckloads for our yard and I am really weeding less! Plus, we're not having to water as often because it reduces the evaporation

The cities of McKinney, Plano, Richardson, Allen and Frisco have a partnership with Texas Pure Products in Plano, residents receive discount on bulk products. We highly recommend them.

A lovely wedding

This weekend we drove to Shreveport to attend the wedding of my friend's daughter. It's hard to believe I have a friend (sorta my age) that has a daughter old enough to get married. My friend M'Lissa and I met in 1991 when I was still in college. We only lived in the same city for less than a year but have kept in touch and remained very close friends ever since then. Her daughter was 4 at the time, yesterday she was a beautiful bride. Time flies when your watching a beautiful young lady grow up.

Isn't she lovely....
Here is the card I made. I tried to match her colors and I think I got pretty close...

Hope your weekend was wonderful, thanks for stopping by....
