Flowers For Someone Special - Creative Card Chicks

 Hello my friends. Happy Saturday. I hope you are all doing well. The weather was beautiful here in H Town today. A bit warm for weeding the flower bed, but I got some of it done this morning. Now just a small patch left. I'm not sure exactly what it is that is growing out there, but it is trying to take over the flower bed. I'm having to dig out the volunteer plants that are growing. It could be some Lantana that I had planted there some years ago and keep trying to get rid of it every year. It will just take over the whole bed if I don't keep it under control. My sprinklers that water that flower bed are also on the fritz and I have the repair people coming tomorrow to fix the ones that aren't working. 

That said, I do have a card to share with you today. I'm only three days late with getting this posted. Sorry, Kelly! It's been a little crazy here with school starting up again and so much to get done around the house - inside and outside. I'm trying to get ready for my kids to finally come back to my house to have dinner here again after more than a year. We've been getting together at their house - eating outside and playing games where we can social distance. I did get to have dinner inside their house two weeks ago and finally got a hug from my daughter. That was very nice.

Splitcoast Stampers Creative Card Chicks is the group that I'm spotlighting today. We have a hostess each month who puts together a card kit and sends one out to each of the members of the group. Then we are to make at least one card from the group to share. We post between the 21st and 23rd of each month. April was the month for Kelly (ScrappinCEO). She sent us some pretty flower images. 

I was going to use the other side of this paper because it has butterflies on it, but when I decided to use this flower stamp, I liked using this side of the paper better. It's from Stampin Up Butterfly Bijou. The stamped image is from the January 2018 Quick Cards Made Easy publication. The sentiment I used and the Just Jade leaf embossed strip is from the August 2019 Cardmaking & Paper Crafts publication. The butterfly was made by Kelly and I used one of my Spellbinders die for the flower image and some twine from my stash. 

That's it for today. I'll be back tomorrow with another card.


  1. So pretty, Maggie. Kelly sent a nice kit for you. I am glad you are able to get into your garden. We love Lantana and but it every year for our pots. Happy weekend!

  2. A gorgeous card Maggie - such a sweet image and the die cut frames it perfectly
    Stay safe
