A Pocketful of Posies...



I am in love.....with this color combo!

Now having said that, I am also pleased to tell you
that I am this week's design team host for the new challenge at


Sometimes I think Martha and I were sisters,
separated at birth.  I love the colors she puts
together (or at least her 'people' put together)
and this was one photo inspiration I knew we had to use.


I was thinking about all the different types of flowers there
are to make (because Paige over at CARDS was calling for them)
and I thought it would be fun to make these 
funky posies using this color scheme.
You may recognize that DP from Cosmo Cricket's
'Early Bird' collection.  The stems were stamps
from Heidi Grace and the senitment is Impression Obsession.
