Timeless Tuesday #54 It's All About Me

When I saw today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, I decided to use the asters from the Calendar set 3. I haven't used these yet. I have a love/hate relationship with these Asters.

A lady I worked with in my first job after college, had beautiful Mexican Asters in her yard. She would bring in bouquets weekly for months. She shared some of her seeds with me. I followed her directions to a "T" & my plants didn't do anything. She gave me seeds every year for the 4 years I worked with her & they NEVER did grow for me. Hers seemed to do better each year. *sigh*

I've got all kinds of seeds planted & plants ready to go into pots, I might see if I can find some Mexican Aster seeds & try my hand at them again. At least with this stamp, I can create a beautiful bouquet even if I can't grow them! *wink*

Stamps: Flourishes Calendar Set 3
C/S: Lemon Tart, Black, White
copics, oval nestabilities, black gingham ribbon, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Lemon Tart buttons

A card a day keeps the mojo flowin'... until tomorrow!
