Vellum flowers on an oval wreath...

This card looks rather blah here, but I do like it IRL. The navy cardstock has a nice sheen to it and the pink vellum flowers look translucent. I guess my lighting was not ideal when I took this photo.

Both my wreath and my flowers are unbranded dies. My sentiment, which I heat embossed, is by Jillibean Soup.

I created the inside sentiment with my computer. While it's a Mother's Day card, it is for someone who is not a biological mom. I've had a couple of women in my life that I could have given this card to, so I'm hoping it appeals to someone else. It will be one of those cards that is for sale at the thrift store where I volunteer.

We have (mostly) shoveled out from our "Snowmageddon" this past weekend. The official snow totals in my area were between 15" and 19". We have shoveled everything clear except the entrance to the street from the sidewalk in front of our house. When the snowplows came through last night, they piled a massive ridge of snow down each side of our street. It's about 4 ft. high and 3 ft. deep. My arms were sore from yesterday's shoveling, and by the time I got the walks shoveled today, I didn't have the energy to try to clear a path to the street. It will have to wait. Maybe tomorrow...

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Beautiful flowers and wreath. The vellum flowers are a great accent. This time of year, if you wait awhile, the snow will just melt. I am hoping we had our last winter blast this past weekend.

Ohhh I love this Cheryl, those little vellum flowers are so pretty!
I'm sure you are well fed up of the snow, all that shoveling doesn't sound like any fun whatsoever! Northern Ireland almost closes down if we get more than a couple of inches, so I don't know how we would cope with nearly 20"!! I'd be off work for a fortnight ;)

I love your leaves and youy pretty vellum flowers. (I actually had some vellum flowers pulled out to use last week, but I put them back away today. Maybe I need to get them out again.) I think we had 22 inches here. I'm actually sorry we missed it!
