Thinking Of You Peonies card



Peonies are some of my favorite flowers.  I have 6 plants in my yard and love it when they bloom.  The plants are even beautiful after they are done blooming.  Every fall I just take the hedge trimmers and the plants are ready for winter.  This set from Newton's Nook Designs really capture the beauty of the flowers.  I opted to color in a peach shade rather than the deep pinks and whites that are in my yard.  I think I need to buy a peach bulb for next year to add to my collection.

Sprinkles are everywhere...and I think that's a good thing.  This time I made a sprinkled doughnut card and what better way to have it than with an adorable cat hanging from the middle.  Another fun release from Newton's Nook Designs but I wanted it to be a birthday card so I paired it with a set from Concord & 9th.
