Challenge Title: Sending Flowers
Hostess: Understandblue aka Lydia
Keyword: HYCCT1322
Date: Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Nothing brightens someone's day like flowers. They are the first gesture we make when someone is down, and their beauty can truly change a person's outlook on a day. I know when I walk into my home and I have a vase of flowers, the room just feels different.

Papercrafters can send flowers every day - and we should! So my challenge to you is to brighten the days of these ladies in Houston with one or more flowers on your card. Here are some possibilities for this challenge:

1) Hand paint your flowers or draw them
2) Stamp flowers
3) Use pressed flowers
4) Make paper or ribbon flowers using any of our tutorials:
- Facial Tissue Flower
- Crinkled Ribbon Flower
- Rosebud
- Dryer Sheet Flower
- Rolled Ribbon Flower
- Loopy Flower
- Metal Flower
- Rolled Flowers
and many more! Just type flower in the search box on this page.

Shower us with flowers, and don't forget to mail your cards!

Thank you again for joining us, and see the details below for sending in your cards.

I have a busy cleaning day so I was happy to see the challenge posted and got right to work! I love this stamp, bought it as a single when SU offered it that way. I love black and pink together so I decided to color the flower pink and use the black contrasting color. Hope you like it.

Just edited my card to show that I also used a clear star gelly roll glitter pen on the edges of the flower. They aren't very visible in the picture, though.

Thanks for the wonderful challenge to use flowers! Blue Believe

HYCCT1322 Storytime
 
This card is inspired by my daughter reading to the cows in Montana when she was little, and the fact that they seemed to "listen" to her stories. I used a cute stamp depicting the Little Critter character from the Mercer Mayer books, and a slightly confused cow from All Night Media. There's lots of flowers all over this card :) Here's Storytime
