Joyful Day

A pretty sunshiny day here and going to be warm to boot!
I have a bright and cheerful card today
that I think would be great for Mother's Day.



I made a square card and covered it with a pretty
floral background.

The die cut is Tutti Designs Flourish Butterfly Corner.
Makes a statement just on it's own doesn't it?

I added a few pearls to the die cut
and a few flowers to 'pretty' it up!

Lastly a sentiment was added, one that I love!

My pictures for today come from my garden last year, I believe...enjoy!!


Annabelle Hydrangea


A few of my many varieties of lilies,
however, I don't think I will see these again 
as the deer seem to have eaten LOTS of my lilies!


Entering the following challenges:

Oooh, I have that paper and the sentiment set. So pretty! The yellow butterfly makes a nice splash against it. Ohhhh, your garden! The Annabelle hydrangea is such a pretty thing. I have a white hydrangea, but not an Annabelle, so the blooms are different. The Annabelle has such delicate florets. And your lilies! I swoon over your garden setting surrounding them. My garden gets more and more shade every year as the trees grow, so it's hard to get all this color in one place. So gorgeous! Keep on sharing those photos!
