I'd Pick You!



This is a card I made for April's Monthly Challenge for the Girls of the Baker's Dozen.  This group is a kind of mystery image swap, where we each get an image and additional items to complete the challenge each month.  Jeanette was the hostess and sent us a bunch of cute flower images and sentiments.  Jeanette wrote--This month being April, I'm thinking of warmer weather, springtime activities and lots of flowers.  She picked the theme--If friends were flowers, I'd pick you" because she truly does treasure our friendships.  And--I so appreciate all of my friends in this group and all of my card groups too!  This is the last month of a post as the Baker's Dozen--we return in May with Suzy's image as Creative Card Chicks!


Here is the inside of my card:



This was a fun kit and I hope the Jeanette and the others like my card.

Swing into Spring

If you are looking for my {PIN}Spirational Challenge, please scroll up.




It is the 15th of the month and that means we get to show off a new Dueling Darlings challenge. For the April Challenge, Suzy and Terry are the Darlings who decided on the theme.  Terry is a Darling and Suzy is a Diva, my team!

The theme or challenge they picked is "Swing into Spring or Spring".  This is what Suzy wrote for the Divas:   So, our theme is "swing into spring" or "spring". Not sure how we decided to word it! Some of you haven't even seen spring yet!!  The second part of your challenge is to let us know what your favorite dessert that was made usually in the Spring....maybe something that was only made at Easter time. If you want...share the recipe! We can always use more dessert recipes!! 




Here is the inside of my card--I used the sweet die cut that Suzy sent:





I really do not have a spring-time food that I crave--however, I do look for the start of all of the fresh fruit that starts to arrive at our local stores.  I also look forward to the local farmer's markets starting up later this spring! 

I hope Suzy and the other Darlings enjoy my card.
