156 - Bouquet for You

This time around we are asking for a BOUQUET. Make something with flowers. It's just that simple. Use flowers somewhere in your project.

Deena here: With spring here (supposedly - but not so much if you live by me) and mother's day around the corner, flowers come to mind...all kinds...I needed some sympathy cards and I found these calla lillies at my local dollarama...I thought they would look great on a card and I love the way they turned out! 

Electra here:  I have a good friend who is celebrating a birthday this month.  I thought flowers would be perfect for her card, cus she is a flowery kind of lady.  I hope she likes it!

Rosemary here and I was playing with stamps and ink and embossing powder (oh my) and made a card of encouragement and a tag.

Jana here: I am sending flowers to Boston. The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild has made a call for flags that will be on display in Boston sometime this summer. You can read more about it here. I made this little bird to fly up to offer my support. And I just now noticed that the butterflies are made out of flowers too. Love when things work out this way.
(Bird is the front and the butterflies are the back.)

You have until the end of Saturday 18 May to join in with your fabulous creation. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.
If you would like to join in with a previous challenge we've set (life happens and lateness is absolutely fine, we don't mind a bit) just add your blog post address to Mr Linky below. Please make sure your blog post refers to the previous challenge you are entering so we don't get confused.  
We look forward to visiting you!

Jana, I love the idea of sending flags to Boston.....its all about showing we care about eachother isn't it. You've inspired me to try this at work - we're looking for a project that everyone can contribute to.

I agree with Chat Noir, that is a wonderful idea. Thanks for the link Jana!
