Each Thursday Alison Solven (my border buddy) and I create a card that we have CASEd. CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit. I have had the Dandelion Wishes stamp set for some time but haven't had time to play with it much yet. It is an excellent set for many different occasions.
Dandelions have some special meaning for me. I use to pick them and give to my grandma, and she would put them in a special little vase and keep them until they became puffs of seeds. This always made me feel so special, and like she valued my gift. Now my grandchildren bring me these unique yellow flowers, and it truly is the circle of life.
Do you have special memories of Dandelions, or are they just a pesky weed to you? Comment Here
