Birthday flowers ...
[F]lowers... adorn our lanes, fields and fells, and... smile upon us and cheer and bless us in our country rambles.... the lovely blossoms... kiss the clear brooks and mountain wells... ~James Rigg, "Preface," Wild Flower Lyrics and Other Poems, 1897
Bit late with my post today. I have not been doing a very good job managing my time since I retired and need to get back into a rhythm :O( ...
Today is the start of a new color challenge at The Outlawz, sponsored this month by Mary Smith of Createful Hearts Digis.
Our colors this week, a tic tac toe table, were selected by Jeanie and Kimberly.
Here is my card, which to be honest is a little messed up. I had decided to use the center squares left to right. Problem is that I mistook 'ribbon' for lace. Sooooo ... my card has an embossed lace doily :O)
But ... I like it and hope you do too!
