Hi, Friends......

Sorry it has been awhile since I posted anythingIt's no picnic caring for a sick 3 yr old......and especially no picnic when you are sick yourself!!!  We are still coughing and such, but I am HOPING we are headed toward being on the mend.  Ugh...  Naptime for little granddaughter has been naptime for Grandma, too, so no cards!!!  I have missed it!  I lay down with her this afternoon, too, but got up in time to make this naptime card for this week's MFP Inspiration Challenge of Amazing Backyards.  Here are the two inspiration photos I drew from:

 Aren't they amazing!!??

So here's my card where I took the pastel colors from the playhouse picture and the checkerboard pattern from the other photo:


Supplies:  Serendipity butterfly, thrift store flowers, Hampton Art embossing powder, JoAnn clearance ribbon, stamps, and glitter glue. 

Super short post today (I heard those hoorays!) because naptime is about over!!!  Have a lovely day.

Your card is lovely and I so see you picked up the colors from the inspiration picture (I picked the same picture - how fun is that). Love the flowers and the bg, but the butterfly steals the show of course. Hope the little one is better! Thanks for entering the MFPSpeedyTV Inspiration Challenge! Hugz!
