Another CAS birthday card...

I had this stamped scalloped panel sitting in my card parts box for quite awhile, and when I had just a small piece of the pretty floral DSP left, it was time to put the two together.

My lovely rose was created with a multi-layered stamp from Altenew. It's so much fun to stamp these flowers--especially now that I have a stamp positioner!

The little strip of DSP above my sentiment was the only piece left. I used a border punch to give it a more interesting edge. I think the border punch is by Martha Stewart, but since I'm not under oath, I won't swear to it.

I'm not sure where the sentiment stamp came from either. Possibly Woodware.

I had a couple of surprise visitors today who stayed for several hours. They didn't say much, and even managed to take a nap (at least the Mallards did--with their heads tucked under their wings).

I took both of these pictures from my front doorway. My visitors didn't seem the least bothered to have me there. In fact, I had to make a noise to even get them to look up for the camera.

I love visitors like this--except when they help themselves to my flowers. Whenever I see a tulip beginning to open up, I rush out and pick it for a vase inside before my bunny friends can eat it.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day

Such a beautiful card Cheryl! That lovely rose on that scalloped panel goes so well together! Great design! How cool that you get such wonderful visits. I live in a large town and the only visitors are seagulls and magpies! Have a great day! Luv & Hugs. Hazel xx

Your rose is so pretty. You do layered stamping so well. I am still struggling with that. I think it is choosing colors that is my problem. I love your scalloped frame too. We had a bunny who would hop down the row and eat the heads off all our tulips.

Love your card - I have a couple of 2-step stamps and just can't seem to get them to look right :( maybe I need to find my stamp positioner. Love your pets in the yard pictures. Mother Nature has created some beautiful animals.
