I'm back from my little Easter break!  We had a great time!!! It is always good to get together with family.  Our backyard baseball game ended up being kids in permanent batting, Dad's in permanent outfield, and Moms cheering the kiddos on.  They were too cute!  Here's a picture of a few of my nieces and nephews learning to go to the bases (hoola hoop) haha!

My hubby and his brother reminisced about all the baseball games they had in this yard! It was a great time!  My SIL had all the kids pick out a potted flower to plant in a particular spot in the yard and dedicated it to "Granpa" with a sign above it that reads "Brothers Garden" (that was his nickname).  So sweet!!!

Anyhow, as to my card.......hahaha!  I used the beautiful new "Churchon the Hill" from Lili of the Valley.  I think this was one of my favorite new stamps from the latest collection.  It can be used with the sweet wedding couple too.

I colored it with distress inks and the papers are Pion Designs.  My flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts!

I hope you like my card!  I'll be back soon to show you some other things I am working on! Thank you for the visit and the sweet words you leave me!!! I really appreciate each and every word!

Hugs, Dena

Great card, Dena! Love the pretty image, stunning papers and vintage feel...wonderful! Looks like you all enjoyed your family get together playing baseball and what not! Unfortunately, we didn't get the weather this Easter to do very much. A lovely thought by your SIL to remember Granpa, too. Lisa X

Another beautiful creation! One of the many things I love about your cards is that your flower arrangements never compete with your images... you get such a great balance. And that delicious shade of blue is so peaceful and pretty. =) ~Christy
