Timeless Tuesday....your favorite


Well TT at Flourishesis asking us to use our favorite set on our card today...are you crazy??? Almost every set is my favorite and I know most of you feel that way so I dug through my box and found one of my favorite sets the Zinnia. When I was a kid zinnias and marigolds were what we called alley flowers as they grew in everyone's back yards and many times their seeds flew in the breeze and soon the alley way would have those bright flowers popping up all over the place. They are more classy now and in our sub they call the alley a carriage lane. I said to myself...who the blankity blank has a carriage?? But anyway I used the Zinnia set and kept it totally simple by just doing a black and ivory card. Lazy? well maybe but it to me is not only simple but kind of elegant so that's what I'm sticking to. I hope you are all off to a good start this week...remember to file your income taxes. I got a note from the IRS about my 2010 taxes and I hope I'm not headed to jail as there was an error on them. Referred it to the CPA who was the guy who figured it out and hopefully I will be safe..Let you know if I have to wear a striped suit or not. Happy week everyone.

Totally gorgeous!!! I'm hoping to plant some of those "alley flowers" this year and if they spread - all the better for my neighborhood. I think I actually have this set and might have to go prospecting in the studio to find it. Love, love, love what you did with it. ~chris

Great card!
Don't worry, pretty sure they'll give you internet privileges in the Iron Zoo. Not sure if they'll let you craft though....scissors, you know!

Your black and ivory does look very elegant. I had forgotten how well flowers grew along the edges of the alley.

I don't know how in the world I missed your post! Sorry to be so late. Love the card and as for the stripped suit; I've often wondered if they offered verical strips for hefty girls like me!
