May Day flowers

Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844

Good morning
I am late getting this posted.
Been a very busy weekend and my week does not look much better

Another Clean and Simple Challenge as started at The Outlawz and it's Cheri's turn to post ...

May Day is celebrated here in New England in this traditional way: May Baskets are made. These are small baskets usually filled with flowers or treats and left at someone's doorstep. The giver rings the bell and runs away. The person receiving the basket tries to catch the fleeing giver; if caught, a kiss is exchanged.  The challenge this week is to include a basket of flowers on your card, then give the card to someone you think is special.  If you get a kiss...that's a bonus!  

So come along and play with us...
Here is my card

Size: A2
