April Showers Bring May Flowers in August

April showers bring May flowers in August? Those May flowers will bloom in August if one is long overdue in meeting the May Papertrey Peeps challenge.  This is my second "make-up" post in my unmet Peeps challenges.

I used Life and Iconic Images (PTI) for the focal point. The background was stamped with Stella and Rose-Gertie "Girly" (My Mind's Eye). Of course, I had to add a strip of gingham with PTI's background stamp. I mean I hadn't used a gingham stamp for several weeks.Speaking of backgrounds, did you order the new houndstooth background stamps from PTI?  I'm feeling a a little regretful for nor ordering them,but I decided to wait and hear the feedback from others. I'll be interested if they truly are easier to line up.
Today, I'm shopping at a new vendors market in town which is only opened three days a week. It just opened last weekend, but we were out of town. One of the booths is owned by Cerrie of  The Little Pink Studio. I was introduced to her online store via Melissa Phillips's blog. I was surprised to learn she lives in Knoxville and was thrilled to learn she has opened this booth.  You can check out her charming booth here.
Do you have something fun planned for today?


  1. Beautiful flowers, Cammie! Love the soft colours (and the green of course!) your background stamping is super pretty!

  2. Very pretty card Cammie. Still waiting to receive my PTI Iconic set. How lucky for you to have that booth so close to home to visit! BTW-the Christmas PP pads are calling my name. That is why I must whittle down my stack before getting some the latest! Have a good weekend!

  3. Very pretty. Love all the different elements.

  4. I forgot Looks like a great place to shop! I wish we had a place like that here.

  5. Another beauty, Cammie--I love the background and the touch of gingham. I won one of the ionic sets and am so anxious for it to arrive. My favorite image is that gorgeous pitcher!

  6. Such a pretty card Cammie! I would be soooo in trouble with the new market!! I will have to tell my mom so she can check it out for me, lol!

  7. Just lovely Cammie!! I so need to catch up on some challenges myself.

  8. Very pretty, Cam! I like how you stamped the Life flowers in the vase and your background is beautiful!


I truly appreciate your comments. Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
