Beautiful Flowers

Well summer has been along time coming here in Utah. But now that it is here, it really hot and the flowers are beautiful. We are trying to get ready to put in a sprinkling system and grass this summer. It will be alot of work but hopefully add to the beauty of the yard along with all the flowers.

This card was such a feel good card. I love this adorable image from Meljens Designs. I could just see this turtle frolicing in the flowers with the butterflies. So as soon as I saw that flowered paper on my desk from last month I knew I had to use it again. Then should I do more pinks or blues it ended up being. I bought that cute ribbon at Michaels after Judi and Nancy left. Thanks to my honey bun for sending me on a a trip to WinCo which is close to Michaels...who could resist not stopping.


Meljens is our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Her prize to our lucky winner is 4 digis of your choice. The design team has also created some sweet cards using Meljens digis.



I just adore the flower on this card. It was made with a flower cut out with the cricut, fringed the edges, two different size punched scollops and that cute button. Hope you have enjoyed looking at my card this week. Till next time have a Sweet one!!!
