Carolina Girl (Cely)
Ahhh yes, the dogwoods are in bloom, temp is rising, loving the feel of the sun on my face and beauty of our dogwoods in bloom.

It's April Release Day at Doodle Pantry.  Stay turned for  another "release" toward the middle of the month.  I have the honor of creating with the Texas Dogwood Set. (It comes pre-colored/b/w, matching papers and sentiments.)  Be sure to participate in April's Challenge (starting at noon) in order to receive a pre-selected set and a chance to win some free sets.

All I chose to do was cut around the image, adding a lovely frame and including a pretty poem with the image on top...anything else would had taken away from the simplicity/beauty.  The process was pretty quick and easy, so I made 4 more to send to friends.

    Wow, this is so pretty.
    I always say roses are my favorite flowers but I think maybe dogwood just might be number one.
    Might have to try making one out of vellum. lol
