Carrots of Wisdom Card

For a cousin celebrating a milestone birthday, I made this "carrot" card. It features PC-printed checked paper, carrots punched with an exclamation point punch (without the bottom period), carrot tops made from a branch punch and a scrappy pieced border.

I bent some notebook spirals into eyeglasses and added eyes and mouth by hand.

The inside shows a little pocket in which I inserted 5 quotes on staying young at heart.

I spotted this enormous dragonfly on my fence. That post is 4 inches across! If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you will see the wingspan is actually a bit bigger than that.

On a walk, I stopped to admire these flowers that I think I would like to include in my garden someday.
