May flowers


Well the skies are blue and there is a bit of sunshine but it does not feel warm at all! It is May isn't it!!
Why does my body feel like it wants to hibernate?
My card today is heading to Australia for a lady's daughter. She loves gardening and I have been making her cards for a few years now so thought I would go with this lovely splash of flowers from Bugaboo. I have trimmed away part of the frame to make it suit my card size.

Well it's raining here yet again Pinky, although the sum made a brief appearance yesterday and the birds thought it was Spring. And yes it is May, or so the calendar says.

Love, love your card, so bright and happy and just how this time of your should be.
