F4A95 - "Winter Flowers" - 12/16/11
F4A95 – “Winter Flowers” – 12/16/11

Lately I have been feeling a LOT like Bill Murray’s character, Phil, in “Groundhog Day” (the BEST movie!!). It has been soooo cold and dreary here that I keep hearing him in my head … “It’s gonna be cold … it’s gonna be gray … and it’s gonna last you the rest of your life!” YIKES!!

Soooo …. I decided I needed a little flower pick-me-up! Bring ‘em out, friends … show me some winter garden-age!!! And guess what??? It doesn’t EVEN hafta be a Christmas card ... I made a birthday card with a poinsettia on it!! Just bring a little bit of life into our dreary, cold winter!! (And for those of you in warmer climes … I’M JEALOUS!! Show us what’s bloomin’ out your window!)

Here is my sample:

I'm hoping that even though a poinsettia is not, botanically speaking, a flower it's still ok to bring one. As you have, I'm sure it's ok :D.
My aunt has a fabulous winter garden - she can have more varieties blooming in January than June, and even though it may not look as spectacular some of the winter flowers just smell heavenly. Hope to have time to make something else inspired by her garden.
But in the meantime I've lost the card I made DH and had to make another:Deck the Tree explosion box by Cook22 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
