MMSC46 Tilda Picking Flowers...Pocket Card for Seed Packets or Little Gift

Happy Spring Everyone!!!!  Could anyone out there be any happier than I am about this???  : )
My card today reflects this happiness that overcomes me right now.  The flowers are starting to come up, the air is warmer, and life once again emerges outdoors.  What a wonderful world it can be. 






A Priscillastyles envelope kit envelobox.  Priscilla is our gracious sponsor and hostess this month.  Envelope turned out beautifully.  Perfect fit too.  Thanks, Priscilla!!  This has to be the easiest kit out there to use.  Check out her variety of styles at her store.  You'll love them.   Our weekly sponsor this week is D'Amour Allure.  There are some beautiful images available there...especially if you are a lover of the vintage era.  If you are interested in having a look, drop by the McMahon Five Design Store and browse around.   To catch up on some of the other MM happenings, don't forget to get the latest at the MM Blog
