A Peony Hello

     I don't know what it is lately but I've become almost obsessed with coloring peonies.  Maybe it's because my own peonies haven't been blooming much the last couple of years and I do miss them.  I think it's time to dig them up and replace them.

     In any case, the peonies I used on today's CAS card are an image from AuroraWings and I just got it so it's brand new to me!  It colors up beautifully and I really like the finished result.  One of our local groups has put out a call for donations of hand made cards which they are going to include in bags of groceries for seniors who are house bound or who have problems otherwise getting out to shop for groceries.  This is one of the cards I'm donating but I have also gone through my stash and I have more than a dozen others ready to go.

     By the way, if you have time to stop by the AuroraWings FB page, Mitzi has a freebie Angel you can use if you want to brighten someone's lock down day.  :-D


Colored with ProMarkers
Sentiment die from Poppy Stamps
Butterfly die from Memory Box
Glitter added to Butterfly
Butterfly and sentiment were cut from small scraps headed for the trash bin

Gorgeous card Connie! Your colouring is total perfection! Peonies are one of my favourite flowers - sadly they don't like our chalky soil here.
