In The Pink

Years ago, my daughters broke into their piggy banks in order to buy me a pink Dogwood tree for Mother's Day.  It was small but I loved it.  Unfortunately, the neighbor's cows broke through the fence one day and ate my little tree.  Seriously !  They also did about $1500 other damage.  The neighbors would not reimburse us for any of the damage done to our flower beds, lawn, patio, etc which made me very upset.  But I was most upset to loose that little tree.  I love Dogwood so I am really excited that one of the new images for this month's release at  Doodle Pantry  is the Texas Dogwood.
Here is the set:
And here are the cards I made, playing with this new set:

Isn't that a beautiful image?

  10. I love pink dogwoods -- this is beautiful!!

  11. That story just made me want to cry. I'd be so upset if someone was so unrepentant about causing the loss of a child's gift, regardless of the other damage. I also love dogwoods and have one in my yard. Your cards are beautiful and love the elegant pink and green combos. Thanks for playing Simple Salutations on Speedy TV. Hope to see you next week.

  12. Love your story Marsha, even though you had thoughtless neighbours! Dogwoods are beautiful and so are your cards.
