May Calendar Girls Challenge

Happy Summer!!  FINALLY!!!!  Yes we have had sunshine and the grass is even turning green.  All I can say is it is about time!!!!

Our May Calendar Girls Challenge was to create a card reflecting something we wished to accomplish this summer.  And since I did not plant one single flower last summer, I know, I hate to admit it, but I didn't...I have promised myself I will get flowers planted.  My goals this next week is to get our yard cleaned up, dump a bunch of garage and plant those flowers!!!

Here is my card, which we made at our last stamp club, but oh so perfect for my flower card!!!  Card base is Early Espresso.  I also used Whisper White, Certainly Celery and Primrose Petal, all from Stampin' Up!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please see my sidebar and check out all the Calendar Girls creations.

Hope you had a relaxing Memorial Day weekend!

I wish you well with cleaning up the yard and dumping the "garage" - hmmmmmmmmmmmm... how does one dump a garage? ;) - and planting lots of beautiful flowers to enjoy all summer long!

Wow Debbie, this is a knock out card! Absolutely love those colors and that stamp is gorgeous! Such a crisp look too, it really shows off the beautiful flowers. Here's hoping that you soon have lovely flowers in your yard too!
