Sunny Days

There is a new challenge going live today at
Our hostess is Terri and she has chosen the theme
'Gingham and Flowers'.

Well, I have to admit, I have a love for both,
making this a super easy challenge for me.

A few years ago I bought a gingham paper pad
from Lilybee Designs called 'double dutch'.
Have to say that pad has been a favorite of mine
but it is close to being gone.

That's where my gingham paper came from,
scraps of it laying on my work table.

The background scene and sentiment are 
from G45 
'Time To Flourish'.
I seem to have a habit of buying their 'stuff'
then hoarding it!

The gingham ribbon was also laying on my work table
just waiting to be used.

The sunflower I made using a Cheery Lynn Designs Sunflower die.

If you like gingham and if you like flowers,
then you might want to pop on over to
The Sisterhood blog and look at all the inspiration my 'sistahs'
have for you...and you just might want to join in the fun with us!

Oooooh, gingham and flowers! A challenge after my own heart. There are currently dozens going on right now I'd love to play in, but where's the time? Stormy today so maybe just one... Back out running again tomorrow, sheesh! SUCH a PRETTY card today, Diane! I just love all that gingham and those fabulous Graphic 45 sunflowers. And I REALLY love the Cheery Lynn sunflower! Maybe I can make two cards today... Will have to put the rain gear on to walk the dogs. It has to be done. Could be fun, but lots of toweling off afterward, and it takes up a lot of my stamping time. Gee, I could be stamping rather than sitting here blabbing with my fingers...

Gogeous creation, Diane! The two colors of gingham are so pretty together. They really make your flower and other embellishments pop.

You can't help but smile at a Sunflower and your die-cut flower is the perfect size to be the star on your card. It links perfectly with that patterned paper and the frame of gingham puts it all together. So very glad you shared this with us at The Flower Challenge!
