CCEE1818: May Flowers!

Hi friends!

There's a new challenge over at the CCEE Stampers
 from our new hostess of the month, Anne!
She's given us a traditional theme of April showers bring May flowers :)

Fun Fact!

The {shortened} traditional saying goes something like: 
 “March winds and April showers bring May flowers and June bugs" 
 and was said to have been recorded around 1886
in United Kingdom and Ireland.

 If we travel further back to the end of the 14th Century, 
legendary author/poet Geoffrey Chaucer had his own say on the month of April in his famous collection of stories titled, “The Canterbury Tales.” 
Chaucer’s version goes as follows:
“Whan that Aprill, with his shoures soote
The droghte of March hath perced to the roote
And bathed every veyne in swich licour,
Of which vertu engendred is the flour;”

Wow!  That's really changed over the years! :)

   My card is based on a card kit from Jeanette, who was hostess in April
(but now it's May ... seeing a theme here, LOL!)
for the Creative Card Chick group at Splitcoaststampers.
She sent us a sweet kit with a flower-ish theme
and I thought it was a great time to post my card.
I happen to have this darling Blossom stamp set from Your Next Stamp
and haven't inked it up - LOL!
Thank you for the kit, Jeanette!  I hope I did it justice ♥ 

And I am absolutely LOVING the cardstck that I found locally -
Fun Stampers Journey!  It's so thick and lucious 
and really rivals SU! cardstock ... the colors are so yummy!

 That's it for me today :)
You can see what the rest of the CCEE Stampers DT have made
 with the flower theme by heading over to the CCEE blog!
Thanks for stopping by!

Big hugs, bigger blessings! ♥
