Dogwood Blossoms that Match My Own Tree!

For those who know me well -- they know I love flowers - flowering bushes, flowering trees, bulb flowers, annual, perennials, and especially "winter over pansies!"  I have silk flowers in my house so I can have flowers all of the time.   My regret regarding flowering trees is that they last such a short time.   So I try to space them out. I have this lovely dogwood tree and in August I have a Crepe Myrtle!  But then if  those trees and bushes bloomed all of the time we wouldn't appreciate their blooms as much.And if they apple, cherry, pear, peach, and veggie blossoms didn't change we would miss out on all those yummy things to eat.  So I will be grateful for the blossoms when they come.  

And my Dogwood tree is in bloom as I write this in late late April.  We had had a hard winter with lots of snow --and that is hard on a dogwood tree. So my whole tree is not in usual full bloom.  And these trees tend to be on the smaller side anyway.   So this is the top part of my tree. 

And here is my card. Do you see how the blossoms match?  This is a beautiful Technique Junkies May Release called __________________ - _________________________. 
And the Birthday Wishes stamp just goes with this card --   Quite fun and whimsical. 
I used my Copic markers to color the image and sponged in the sky.

And don't forget the Dogwood Branch  stamp  is a Technique Junkie May 'release and is on sale for 15% off until May 8! So go shopping -- it's a sale already!

And if you did not read my blog post from yesterday's Blog Hop - I have a contest on my blog. So please read it at  and please a comment before May 5.

Have a great week and get inky!
