Where Flowers Bloom So Does Hope


Hello! I hope you're all having a great weekend! I spent most of yesterday doing computer chores (aka backing up photos).. I hadn't done it since the beginning of the year and with a chugging computer, I was long overdue.


Today I thought I'd kickstart my mojo for the week by playing in a new challenge by Lisa Johnson. This is week 2 of her Poppy Seed Challenge. The requirements for the card (or project) are what she calls "seeds". This week's seeds are a few of my favorite things: Buttons, Polka Dots and the color Light Moss. I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try for this week (posted above), which she dedicated to Susan (and her hubby, Eric). He was just diagnosed with lymphoma, so this card will be heading their way and hopefully will provide some encouragement for them as he begins his chemo treatments. You can read more about his story on Susan's blog and maybe even consider sending them a card as well!


I used Everyday Button Bits for the main image and the sentiment (which reads "Where flowers bloom so does hope) is from Lisa's mini set, Flower Garden Sentments.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
