Happy Sunday all!  I do hope you enjoyed your weekend.  It is back to school next week and boy did I find out the hard way!  I went to Walmart on Friday afternoon and apparently so did 2000 college, high school, and elementary students with their parents.  I went for milk.  I do not have children.  I should have left but I didn't.  Wow - busier than Christmas!!!  Speaking of Christmas, I saw some Christmas lights on the shelves - I won't lie, I was a little giddy =)

What do I like *almost* as much as Christmas??  Flowers!

Yeah, don't go to Walmart this time of year. It would have been much easier on you if you would have just found a cow to milk. ;-)

Glad you made it home unscathed so you could make this fantabulous card. Loving the happy colours and all the layers.

Well, I was going to preface my comment with "oh my goodness", but won't, since Narelle already expressed what I was thinking! Perfection, Deanne! You've used our challenge colours beautifully, and the bold flowers and texture are outstanding. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!
