Everything Flowers!

Hello, Happy Spring!!!!!!! The weather here in New England is gorgeous! It is sunny, in the 80's and there is a warm breeze. A perfect day and tomorrow is going to be even better! I can't remember a March day this nice. I hope we don't pay for it later.

We have another wonderful challenge for you this week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations, in honor of Spring the theme is FLOWERS! You can have theme as your image, as embellishments or as your back round, the more the better. How fun and easy is that so come play with us this week, just hop over to the Going Grey blog see what the ladies have created to inspire you and play along.

When I was creating this card I thought it needed something to make the image stand out from the card. After trying different things I thought of a white doily. This doily that I used had a much different life before I "rescued" it. We at my nieces wedding at a really nice place. When they started serving the fresh fruit cup they had them on these beautiful large doilies. It was so delicate looking I couldn't stop looking at it. I decided I had to have them. I started asking everyone at my table for theirs. My husband was not amused at what I was doing, but I walked out with about 10 of them in my purse. I have had them now for almost 2 years and still have 4 left. So you never know when that next great craft item will land in front of you!
