A Lollipop For Suzan

It’s another challenge over at Lollipop Crafts and this week’s theme is Sisters! It’s my last week on the design team and I’m hosting this week to commemorate all the friends we make online, new and old. I made this card using A Lollipop for Suzan by Sarah Kay because it reminded me of several things… friendship and my own daughters.

Did you know? Sunflower are large flowering plants native to the Americas. They most commonly grow to heights between 5 and 11 ft (1.5 and 3.5 m), although the tallest known sunflower reached 39 ft (12 m) high. The Sunflower is a “composite flower” composed of numerous small flowers crowded together. The florets in the center’s cluster are arranged in a spiral pattern and will mature into seeds. The seeds are used as snack food, expeller pressed into sunflower oil, made into sunbutter (a peanut butter alternative), or milled into flour.
