Wow! This is my first upload and challenge. It has been lots of fun. My original idea was not working so I relaxed and thought about my yard and ended up with this card. I used the Lovely As A Tree set and turned the trees into flowering crab and plum. As you can see I am not relaxing in my chair but must be gardening or getting a nice cool beverage. Although my door bell rang and I had many interruptions during this challenge I still managed to keep it under 45 minutes! That is if I was allowed to stop the clock during the interruptions. My daughter who did a bug card entry was very excited and kept me in my time limit by checking to see if I was keeping track - lol. Can't wait to do some more challenges.

I am not sure how to reply to your personal comments so I will do a post to my card.
Thank you all for your feedback -WOW! It was very exciting to see you like the card.
A few of you mentioned the time factor and not being able to do it. It really is very easy. I used the SU markers to color the trees and grass and the WWC crayons to do the chair stamp. For the sky and light grass tone I used WWC with the aqua painter brush. I tried to put in a path but it did not fit in with the look of the card.
I did have different ideas at first but the spring feel in town when doing the card gave me the blossom idea as no leaves on the trees and then spring flowers didn't work for me. I was so hoping to get to do other cards but was unable to manage. Maybe I will do them this week and post them to share. I wanted to do the quilling and summer sun/choc. chip challenge. I used to do quilling so I have some images in my mind for that card.
Thanks again for your feedback. I can hardly wait to try this again. I will hopefully find it easier the next time. I am still learning how to load and post questions and answers. Got the loading figured out so I am half way there.
Off to do some work. It is now SNOWING! So much for spring. I hope my flowers will survive.
