How Well Do You Know Me?

How about a trivia question today? Let's see how well you know me...

What's something I use often on my cards, admire when other people have the actual item, but you'll not find it at my house?

The answer: flowers.

Did you know that about me?

I do love Love LOVE flower stamps and own many different ones. Flowers to color, silhouette flowers, big flowers, little flowers. 

BUT we don't grow any flowers at all. My husband is a gardener, but his theory is if you can't eat it; don't grow it. I, on the other hand, enjoy seeing flowers in yards, but on the rare occasions when I've tried to have them, I forget to water them and they quickly die. Sad story, I know. So I stick to flower stamps; since I can't kill them.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

What a beauty Jeanette - this is a fabulous image and you have really used it to perfection!
I saw some pink lilies just before Christmas (known as Christmas lilies here) and they were huge, and so beautifully perfumed - thank you for reminding me of them

This is so pretty. I too love the contrast of the black/white with the pretty flower. Well Done!

Another pretty by you (Done in my favorite color PINK!) I do not have a green thumb at all... (and yes when I did have flowers...I always forgot to water them. My hubby liked to garden so sometimes he'll grow some flowers for me!
