Pajama Party – Challenge #3

I always seem to use my Zinnia stamps and they just weren’t going to work for my favourite flower (Lilacs) so I had to improvise. I used the two little flower stamps from the Cupcake Builder stamp set to create this pretty little branch of lilacs, and I used the Leaf frond stamp for the leaves.

Thanks to my mother I have always shared her love of lilacs – they are her favourite flower and every spring we used to go to graveyards to pick lilacs. Shocking, I know – we are practically grave robbers. Don’t tell!

  1. The best graveyard for lilacs is the one of Waterford Bridge road! Also has some great old rose bushes. I’ve tried to propagate some of them – but I always think people will think I’m very strange taking clippings of graveyard rosebushes.

    great card BTW.

    • Thanks for the hot tip Mary Ann! I’ll have to scope out that graveyard – it’s in walking distance to my apartment 😉

  2. still giggling that we picked the same flower 😉
    i TOO went to graveyards with my gram and picked them!!! they are NH’s state flower so they were EVERYWHERE and i loved it 😉

    thanks for playing!!

  3. This card is so awesome! LOVE that you thought so “out of the box” – when I was a little girl (8) in Illinois we had a big Lilac bush in our front yard and I still remember how wonderful it smelled!!

    • My mom is from Elgin, Illinois! She had a lilac bush in her front yard as well 🙂

      I was planning to use the mini flower for my lilac branch, but I still had the teeny flowers out from the card I made for Jennie’s challenge – worked out pretty well! 🙂

  4. Too fun Meghan! I *stalk* our farmers market for lilacs every year 🙂 Can’t grow them where I am, but the dude who grows apples in the mountains brings in buckets for me to swoon over – LOL. Very clever to use that little flower to make lilacs
