May Flowers

One of my favorite jokes when I was in grade school was:

Q: If April Showers bring May flowers, what do may flowers bring?

A: Pilgrims

(get it?????  May Flowers--Mayflower--boat--Plymouth Rock???)Smiley from millan.net


I have May Flowers for you.  My good friend and I were on a road trip last weekend and we just HAD to stop at a stamp store along the way. (YKWIM???)  Well there was some paper that was just too cute and asked to come home with me.  What could I say??

I hope you like the paper, and the stamp set too for that matter—because  They work REALLY well together.  And since I have the organization skills of a 4 yr old, I am trying to enjoy it and use it up.

friends are flowers

weeds wildflowers 

I think the second one is my mom’s birthday card.  The first one uses colored (Prismacolor) pencils and the second one uses watercolors (re-inkers).

Other Deets:

Stamps: Wild Flower Set and Abstract Floral Background  from Rubbernecker;

Paper: Prism: Simply Smooth Ivory; Iced Yellow; DP: Bo Bunny and My Mind’s Eye;

Ink: Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk Ink;

AND for MORE May Flowers (the floral kind—not the boat kind) Check out my buddy Judy at Joy in a JAR!!  Not only does she have some BEAUTIFUL flowers and ideas on her blog, but she is celebrating her blogaversary and has BLOG CANDY!!

AND come back here TOMORROW (Wednesday) for Wacky Wednesday!!!
