There's something so refreshing about roses and daisies, especially when it's January and cold and snowy. For me, those two flowers mean summer because that's when they truly bloom. The roses come in all different colors. Some are vibrant and bright and some are pale and delicate. Roses and Daisies, or the flower dresses, as I call them, can be picked up from Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Designs, from her Lockhart line. To get another view of one of these great dresses, have a look at Anki's blog! How fun they are! Their size makes them perfect for note cards and these are sized 4 x 4. This delicate Rose is set off by Laura Ashley's Contemporary Paper by Dovecraft and some pearlized brads. I though the Martha Stewart lace edge was the perfect finishing touch.

Then there's the bright side of the flower that just makes us smile and feel happy. The bright flowered paper is from the Retro pack also by Dovecraft and it's cornered by flowers and Bella Baubles. The baubles are a great alternative to using brads. The come in such great colors. Both dresses and flowers were highlighted with the Clear Atyou Glitter pen and colored with Prisma color pencils and OMS.

Please make sure you stop over at the Fans of Karen Lockhart group at PCP. We're having a contest for the members of the group. Join our group and leave a comment and get in on the drawing for a free Itty Bitty stamp! We'd love to have you join us in our fun and discussions over there. We have a lot of things planned for the new year. Susana has a great selection of Lockhart stamps in her store and you'll have the opportunity to purchase the NEW Lockhart stamps on Friday January 5th! And if you buy 4 regular sized Lockhart images you get a free Itty Bitty stamp of your choice. And don't worry about buying them all at one time! Susana will keep a cyper-punch for you to keep track of what you have purchased.

I wish all of us roses and daisies in the middle of winter. Gives us hope for the summer!
