Planting time . . .

Good Afternoon my friends!
This is my second posting for today but I just didn't want to forget to share the card I made for the fun challenge over at Classy Cards N Such called 'Garden Party'.

I just love seeing all the flowers starting to take form in my flower beds and wish I had more time (and initiative) to spend planting and nurturing.  But of course, if I did THAT, it would be time away from my crafting cave and we all know how much I love being in 'my cave'!  LOL

So, I guess I just plant 'paper flowers' today ... which is so easy when you begin with the beautiful Graphic45 'Secret Gardens' design paper as I've done here. 


And, how about these fabulous dies ... 

Here are a few other challenges I'd like to share in today:
Die Cuttin Divas - Make it Girly
Sweet Stamps - photo inspiration below
Digi Choosday Week #17 -Wings and Things

Thanks for the visit!
The rain is STILL coming down but at least the winds have slowed down a little!
Prayers go out to all our southern/mid west friends who have had to deal with such devastation due to the recent storms/tornadoes.  
Till next time ...
