I can't stop making cards for Barb's challenge - I love all of the inspiration photos, and I'm still making cards inspired by them. The card above was inspired by two things - the yellow daylily photo, and one of Barb's instructions:

"3- create a new, original piece of art (because you're all artists)"

So that was the quote that jumped out of the Emerson set to be on my card.
I've finally gotten around to making some Valentines cards, now to get around to editing & posting the photos! I'd wish you all a happy Monday, but, it's Monday. Icky.
xoxo,
Jessi
