Simple Joys

Do you remember those days as a child where you would run into the yard full of dandelions, pull them and blow to your heart's content and watch as the little pieces flew through the air?  Me too!  My friend Amy, really likes dandelion images, and I can't blame her as I really like them myself.  Recently when I made a card using PTI's Green Thumb set she asked me why I didn't tell her that there was a dandelion image in that set.  And, to be honest, it hadn't even occurred to me as I had bought the set prior to the dandelion coversations.

I decided tonight to make a quick card to put me in a better mood (yes, one of THOSE days!) and so I pulled out the dandelion image.


This is a gate-fold card so it opens from the middle.


I hope this brings back wonderful childhood memories (or even recent memories you've shared with your kids as they've blown their dandelions into the wind)!  Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

  4. Very clever! Yes, this really brings back memories of when I was a child...my cousin and I would have a race to see how many stems we could collect after blowing the dandelion away. Love the accents! Really like the gate fold, too.

  11. I need to dust off this set. Where I live the wind tends to beat us to the dandelions, so all we see are the yellow spots! I like the touch of having a different fold.
