Boy it seems that I have had not time to get in to my craft room these days!  I purged in there yesterday but never made it to the table to do anything fun!  Today I had time and wanted to work on my Challenge for Papertrey Inkers.  I had a few ideas I wanted to try.  We had to use the color of our favorite flower but could not use flowers. It was much harder than I thought!  I love all flower but lilac's remind me of my Mom so I thought I would use purple.  Here is what I can up with.  
I used card stock from Stampin Up! , the designer paper is Papertrey It's Official!, Stamp set from Papertrey Just the Ticket, and the paper clip from who knows where!  I at first was not feeling it so I left it alone for an hour and came back.  I really like how it turned out.  Very simple and clean.  Let me know what you think!  
On another note my favorite reason for living in the South is this time of year!  Here is what is coming up in my front yard!!  It is a crocus!!  I planted these years ago by my mail box and these are the only ones that have survived.  The forsythia also have started to appear.  Yay for the South!!  SO sorry to all those still buried under a lot of snow. That includes my Dad who I just spoke with where it is 38 degrees and a chance of snow tonight.  He did not enjoy the comments I made on our 60+ days yesterday and today.   I grilled out last night a yummy steak and tonight it is garlic lime chicken!  So looking forwards to the warmer weather I know will come soon!!  Well I am off to enjoy what is left of the day!  Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by!!



  1. yesterday the sun was out and I got to spend a little time in the garden. I get excited, like a little school girl, when I see my bulbs start coming up. I love how they play Hide and Seek. It makes me so happy. Plus last year I planted around 150 tulips and it was a ton of work. I'm just now starting to see that there is results from my efforts, again ... happy school girl :)

  2. Great Card! I live in NC also and love it when I see bulbs popping up. I know Spring is on the way!
