PTI May Blog Hop & Make-It Monday Challenge

Good morning friends.  I'm still alive, just super busy with life.  I found time earlier this week to make this card for the PTI Blog Hop and Make-it Monday Challenge.  
I used an old piece of gingham design paper and added stamps from Stitching Garden and a sentiment from Brushed Birds.

Our weather here has been sunny and warm so I'm spending lots of time outside, playing in the flower beds.  Spring is my favorite time of the year!
 Remember to thank our vets this weekend.  Pray for all those who serve our country and for those who've lost loved ones.
Thanks for stopping by!

  3. These flowers are so pretty and the gingham background looks just like the tablecloth in the inspiration photo. I never thought I needed this stamp set until now. The flowers have such a beautiful vintage, classic vibe like the photo. I love your card. It breathes serenity for sure.

  10. A busy life is a wonderful thing! Love your card, pulling that black and white gingham into your creation is the best. I always find that paper or ribbon makes everything else POP on a card....like your beautiful flowers, fabulous colors! I am FINALLY going to weed my gardens, may take all day or weekend, but I'm okay with that.....can't wait! Enjoy!!!

  12. Birgit, your first card is simply gorgeous with those Stitching Garden florals and black & white background. Smart move combining two challenges with one card. Your patriotic card is awesome too and respect the sacrifices made for the good old USA. Everything looks so much better in the yard with a little TLC!
