Flourishes Beautiful World of Childhood













And here it is... another Flourishes Beautiful World Tour. Once again, it’s time to get those passports ready, grab a cup of coffee and prepare to travel the world! I invite you to travel with us, do a little globetrotting and leave us a comment and you could WIN A FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!!! The catch is, you don't know which country is going to be this month's Vacation Spot (chosen blog), so leave a comment on each of the team's blogs by April 30th for your chance to win!!!

If you came from Sasha's blog then you have arrived at the right destination. If not, you can start your journey back in Florida at the Flourishes blog so you don't miss any of the inspiration along the way!

Our hostess this month is Anne-Elise and she challenged us to create something that reminds us on our Childhood. Sigh,... this one was tough. I was thinking and thinking what to make and the first thing that came to my mind was of course my mother. And since we celebrated mother's day this month here in Slovenia I decided to make a present for her. My mother loves flowers and gardening. So I made her a card with some seeds for the upcoming hours in the garden. I included a child's song which she sang a lot to me when I was little. My mother loved to sing. It goes something like: "I am going to the green grass to pick some flowers for my mommy, to pick some flowers for my mommy, beautiful, white daises... Ok it doesen't sound that good when translated but it is a sweet poem here in Slovenia. :) And here is my card:



I made a card with a pocket and packed some seeds on a special "mini card" to go in the pocket. I used a gorgeous "Gerber Daises Stamp set". I colored the image with aquarel color pencils and an aqua brush. And I printed the part of the song with my printer. I put some lovely thoughts inside the card... My mother absolutely loved it! Hope you like it too! :) Thanks for your visit! I hope you enjoyed it here in Slovenia, your next stop on the Flourishes tour around the Globe is Meredith and her beautiful Canada...


Enjoy the rest of the tour! Hugs, Aleksandra
