*Flowers for you!*

Goodness gracious, it's a card! :)
This is an incredibly busy time for our family
 and I haven't had a chance to make a single thing, sadly.
 Our second daughter wrapping up her Senior year
 and all the trimmings that go with that ... college visits, auditions, dorm, decisions, finals, graduation!
And that's just one kid :)
 Today's card is my sample for my SOTC card group
and the theme with a 'new life' theme - that had me stumped!
  Since flowers were mentioned as a possibility,
 that's the direction I went with my card ...
flowers are always wonderful!
Here's the inside:
I scooped up the Tiddly Inks freebie for this week -
 isn't it the sweetest!
I colored/paired this one yellow and blue since this will go
 to one of my sisters-in-law
and it's her favorite color combination.
I've got quite a few more Mother's Day cards still to make -
including one for my own mom ♥
I'll enter this into the Tiddly Inks challenge this week -
flowers are always sweet to give and receive :)
I also followed an old Deconstructing Jen sketch #150 from the archives
that jumped out at me .... very inspiring!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
