are finally coming up in Wisconsin and it is a much needed sight! We had an amazingly warm and spring like March only to see an April filled with snow showers, rain, temps in the low 30's.....ugh! But today, the first of May is sunny and promises to have temps in the mid 60's.....a delight. It will be soooo nice to go to one of my son's track meets and not have to wear mittens, a parka, hat and a scarf! Today I am going to try a challenge which I will admit is not too much of a stretch for me. It is the Cas-ual Fridays challenge of April Showers brings May Flowers and since I tend to love coloring floral images this challenge worked perfectly for me. But I will say the 'clean and simple" aspect of the card always stymies me. I think I ripped up the card base of this card no less than three times and finally gave up last night and read a book instead. But this morning I tackled it anew and actually really like the card that turned out although it is a whole mile away from what I envisioned and planned! So, hop on over to Cas-ual Fridays and check out their challenge.....and the beautiful inspiration from their design team!
And here is my card. This is a sweet little image from Northwoods Rubber Stamp Co. I would love to have a bucket of fresh cut roses like this.....unfortunately no matter how much I love roses I have never been successful at growing them ;-(......
Thank you for stopping by today and I always appreciate your comments and suggestions!
