More from today...

ha ha funny thing my folder of cards i have made this year has so much pink in it, and i had already forgotten what i named these images it took me a while to find them skimming the folder. :) this stamp set is from SU and one i just got last Friday from my MIL's last party. the sentiment is from an hostess set called bloom with happiness that i got at one of my last parties.... the Printed paper is from Basic Grey and the ribbon is May Arts. the cut out flowers are up on different heights pop-dots. this card is 5X7 in real life.
This is another of the A.I. Backgrounds left over from Sunday, it has the SU stipple Hydrangea on it and the sentiment is also from SU. (but i have to look up the set name it an old old sentiment set) its on a Marvy punch of Basic Grey pp. this one is also 5X7 in real life the textured pink card stock is from Bazzill. the Brads are lasting Impressions, the copper colored card stock is called Really Rust from SU. and the copper organdy is a generic ribbon you can get like 25 yards for 2.00 at a Craft Warehouse store. ( I think this is a west coast chain though)
I planted these from bulbs last year, and last year all they did was make stems, no blooms... so it surprised me when they came back up this year, figured they were (not hardy) and not really for this area...??? this year they bloomed. these started a while ago, and i was looking at them today going, those are not going to last much longer...
this is what the plant looks like, the blooms kinda remind me of Freesia... but, i dont remember the name of it. evidently it IS hardy in zone 6 however... :)
