IT'S A BRIGHT BRIGHT SUNSHINY DAY!

NOT!!! Up here in the Northeastern US the sun hasn't been out for quite some time. I think that is part of the reason why I have been in a grouchy funk for the past week. I had a 3 day weekend and didn't do a bit of crafting, I didn't even touch the computer. Now I am behind again and my husband informed me that we are having a bunch of people over for the Super Bowl and I have to get the living room curtains (long story for another day) done.

Thankfully, the challenge this week at THE GREETING FARM is to make a summer themed card. Once I actually got started on it, it did indeed lift my spirits. What says summer more than flowers, right so that is what I used along with Gigi who is a definite flower power girl.
I found this wonderful flower card template at Peet's Scrapalbum blog. I adore and greatly admire her work,it is always soft and drop dead beautiful. I dug around in my scraps and came up with this cheery paper (at least it was to me) and added some flowers and ribbon.
Check out the challenge, it is sure to cheer up even the most snowbound of us (I am sticking my tongue out at all you warm weather chicks LOL!) Also, be sure to check out all the details of the TGF CHA RELAY starting on Sunday. Sounds like so much fun, I will be trying to play along myself!

You sound like you need to purchase one of those sun lamps people use in the winter time to get some Vitamin D and get over the blues. LOL! I hear you sister! I live in Northern WI, and the sun doesn't shine here much either in the winter, and when it does, that means its FREEZING outside! LOL! LOVE the card. The flower shape is fantastic! And you did such a nice job with it!
