Next on Camera Spring Cleaning


This card was made for birthdays during March and April. I don't think I took pictures of them all. I am just using one. As they were for both male and female family members, I just adjusted the colors. W had quite a few birthdays in March and April. May is a slow month as far as birthdays go. We have had a First Holy Communion (tomorrows post which I am kind of excited about) and a Graduation. The month of June starts the birthdays again. My 40th being one of them. EEKS did I just say that out loud? I am going to be 40. I have to work on my card "recipe" list. I guess I think my cards are so simple, they don't need recipes. I would like to change that. Maybe when I can once again visualize card making as relaxing and just not one more thing I have to do.


I also decided to post the picture I tool of my tulips. I planted them last year and I am proud to say they survived Chicago's brutal winter weather. I will have to cut them and bring them in the house before the squirrels eat them, the kids in the neighborhood step on them or the neighbors help themselves to them. They are purple. It might be kind of hard to see in the picture. I planted 8 last year and this year grew 10. The daffodils and the tulips from my front yard already have bloomed and died. I hope these last a bit more. They make it look so springy. Now if only the weather will cooperate.
