MC Jan/18 - Easel Cosmos - ECD Happy Birthday - Some People

As I mentioned recently I spent a day creating flowers... Drew the shapes for Pansies, Jasmine, Dogwood & Cosmos, then proceeded to cut them with my electronic cutter and then scored, colored and shaped them. It was a happy play day... And today I wanted to use my Cosmos...

They remind me of my fraternal grandmother. In her front garden was a huge patch of cosmos. Normally they are considered annuals, but she had so many, they propagated themselves each year. It was such a pleasure to see when I visited...

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Happy Birthday Small" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I'm also using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design  ("Some People Like Flowers...")

You drew the shapes? They turned out so pretty! Your grandmother's flower patch sounds lovely, too. How I would love to have a sunny patch that the deer wouldn't eat. Altogether beautiful, Yogi!
