MoJo Card Challenge June 2010

Here is the card I created from the square sketch #145 this week:













The background flowers are in  the garden out front.
A small scrap of a baby blanket under a paper frame.
A wooden pink dogwood flower replaces the star.
The inside sentiment simply says, "Thanks Mom!"

Butterflies and Summer Flowers

I love looking at nature and taking pictures of it.  My Mother was a gardener and loved to be outdoors.  I, on the other hand, am allergic to both types of dirt -- the smell of it makes me ill.  I love to take photos of flowers and butterflies, caterpillars, and spider webs.  I do not like bugs, snakes, or spiders.
Here is a photo I took today when I was out:
The background is from Digital Arts Cafe designers, which is out of business.  
I did not create the artwork,but I did take the photo.

Bleeding Hearts

Bleeding hearts were my Mother's and Grandmother's favorite flowers.  When I first lived in Florida, I was able to get a clipping of a white bleeding heart vine.  My friend now has a wonderful house plant growing from that clipping.


This is a picture of this summer's red bleeding heart plant at her home.
