Friday's challenge....Spring flowers


Friday challenge at notimetostampWell I guess I didn't pay attention as to what this challenge really was and set out to make a simple card that had some flowers on it. I decided that to get out of the Winter duldrums I needed some bright and cheerful paper so I grabbed my pad of Basic Gray, Lemonade which is bright and cheerful. I had these tags in my stash and thought...hey this is perfect to do a speedo card and join in the fun. My little phrase is an Impression Obsession stamp or should I just say an IO. Nothing to it, just the one stamping of the phrase and then it's slapping it all together and you're good to go. Winter reminds me of looking in the mirror and seeing myself with that gray hair and washed out snow look. My saving grace...the eyes aren't as good as they used to be so unless I really look hard, it's not too bad.
Yikes Spring can't come soon enough.
Gotta buzz now as my favorite soap is on...The Young and the Rest of Us. Did you ever notice that the characters have all been married to one another at one time or another??? Even the little kids grow up and marry their step-father who never grows old. Crazy but I still love it.
Happy weekend fellow bloggers, hope it's a goody one.

Just gorgeous Pat! So springy and colorful - gotta love BG and their paper! That soap was the BIG thing when I was in college - it was new and very racy way back then - I still read the covers of the soap mags when going through the checkout and you are absolutely right - they all marry each other and have kids that marry each other and have secret kids with each other, yadayadayada - yikes - it can hook you though! Who's Victor married to now btw? ~chris

I'm cracking up over your "Young and the Rest of Us" soapie! ROFL!! I never watched that one as I was firmly addicted to General Hospital, but I find that after not watching for months at a time, I can pick up right where I left off any time! LOL
Your card is spring-like and cheerful and I love how you layered the tag to match the layered card panels! Nice card and I wish you a pleasant weekend too! Hugs,
Carol

Whooosh! Thanks for the brisk spring breeze, which is what your card made me think of. You know the one that feels a tiny bit warm and doesn't make your nostrils stick together? Really like that background paper and the simplicity of your design. Happy Weekend!

You still crack me up! I started watching Bold and The Beautiful just so I could have some common ground with my MIL. I would be watching it and going "wait, that's her step father isn't it? And, I thought that one was married to her daughter? Wowsers, only on the soaps! Thank goodness she doesn't watch it anymore, means I don't have too either!
Love the card, hope I will be able to help out with the Cards 4 Kids this year. HUGS my friend!
