It's Timeless Tuesday Time...hip hoorah!

Well today is Timeless Tuesday @ Flourishes and of course I want to play along. Darling Dee is asking us to do an "All about Me" card. Well my dears how can that possibly be I asked myself, there is too much to tell. But I thought a bit and because of my love for the garden and flowers I decided to do the cyclamen from the calendar set. This plant is like me ...bright, beautious, also calm and so soothing in character. OMGoodness enough of the phony bologna, but it is bright and the red is hot and spicy and I at least try on that one. This was a favorite for Valentine's Day and decked the tables in our after service breakfast tables . Beautiful! Well on to the card...just stamped and colored with my water colored pencils ( as usual, I know pretty boring) as I love them and think they do the color job I want. The sentiment is from Flourishes tag along set, which has every little thing you want to say..love it. Used my Nestie ovals for my matting on some embossed white paper. Added a bit of bling and I am done. Sorry for the crappy photo but it's a dreary day and it is getting dark out. Yeah, I wonder what I did all day too.

Woke up to a shoveling job of about 3 inches and it was clear all day but it's started up again. When in the blankety blank is this winter going to hurry up and get over? Happy week peeps.
