CASology ~ Spring

 So many wonderful blossoms appear to show signs of spring.  One of my favorite here in the Pacific Northwest is the blossom of the Dogwood Trees.  I think I really prefer the white blossoms against the beautiful green foliage, but I have a pink Dogwood in the yard, actually it is in my daughter's yard now since they live in that house.  The tree was given to my husband's grandmother, Nana, when she was living with us back in the early 80's.  She was a very special lady and we were blessed to have her live with us for several years before passing away.  Our daughters had a wonderful relationship with their great-grandma!
This card is for the

  3. Beautiful coloring and lovely card!

  4. This is a stunning card. I just love your dogwood flowers and your diagonal sentiment. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  5. Beautiful card, Colleen! My mom loved Dogwood trees. Ours was destroyed in a storm years ago, but our neighbor planted one next to our driveway & it's almost fully in bloom. Just wish the blossoms stayed on the trees longer!

  6. These trees are stunning but I feel like Greta, I wish they would last longer. Your coloring is beautiful and I like the look of handwriting on the sentiment. It's wonderful that your daughters have great memories of their great grandma and got to spend quality time with her.

  7. Beautiful story about your DH mother and your girls. Love the card you made with the sentiment in the split!
