Hi Y'all...I went to Selma yesterday, my home town and the drive over was lovely!!! It's a 2 lane, old country road , meandering through 2 swampy areas, farm land and pastures for miles and cotton ready to be picked, all along the way. Goldenrod, Black-Eyed Susan's, Morning Glories creeping along the fences, and Purple Statis blooming along every turn! Oh how I LOVE the south, especially this time of the year!!! I even pulled over on an old pig trail of a road, and picked some Black-Eyed Susan's. I'm telling ya, the countryside was ablaze with color !!! Anyway, I have been wanting to make a Side Step card for awhile now and I decided to attempt one today. After throwing away NUMEROUS pieces of scrap paper, I finally got a base that I could live with. I used the Paisley cart again for the flowers,cut at several sizes from 21/2" down to 1", My Community for the fence, cute at 31/5" and Stretch Your Imagination for the flower stems, I just lopped off the flowers and used the stems for the Paisley flowers. The small blue flowers are a punch, and the flourish is a Sizzix die. Even tho I almost pulled my hair out, making this base card, I know I will be making many more ! Thanks for taking a peek...Have a great weekend !!!!

Joy! This card is beautiful. I can see you spend so much time making it. But it's your first one... I love these flowers, I will try making them too. And your story alone is like reading a book to me (I don't even know the names of these flowers in English, they sound so nice) Thanks!

Joy, I would have loved to taken that drive with you; it sounds like a lovely place to be and you must have really enjoyed the sights. I just love driving in and around places like that. And, your card is especially beautiful as is all the cards you make. Thanks for sharing your lovely card and drive.
