Every Path Has Its Puddle

And This Card Has Its Flower

(for a very good reason... keep reading to find out why)

April 10 - 16

Theme: Flowers (include a flower on your card)

The Twist: It can NOT be a rose (or rosette)

When you go to the Twisted Tuesday Challenge Blog, you'll notice that the other designers made the flower(s) the focal part of their cards. hmmmmmmmm!!! Not me! For me it's all about ducks, puddles, and springtime fun!

I tried a strange fold for my card. It doesn't photograph very well because it wants to keep springing open. It isn't an Easel Card, but it seems to be a Wanna-Be Easel Card. LOL!

Oh, and just in case you didn't notice... last week (which was the very first EVER) Twisted Tuesday Challenge had over 30 participants!!! WOW! That is exciting! Congratulations to Melina on this brand new adventure! And THANK YOU to everyone who participated!

I hope YOU, my blogging friends, will participate this week!
