It's International Day of Happiness and the First Day of Spring!! Let's just take a moment and think about that with a nice deep breath. Aaahhh!
I have a busy couple of weeks coming up, so I'm not sure how often I'll be posting, but I made a special effort to make a card in celebration of one of my favorite challenges, the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge. Lesley, the hostess with the mostess familiar to all of you for her tireless creation of challenges throughout Blogland, and for her outstanding card art, has just posted her 100th challenge to Merry Monday!!
Yes, no, go ahead and stand and join me in applause!! She richly deserves it! (I personally think she might not be human, but that's just between you and me.) Congratulations, Lesley! Thank you for all you do to make this house a home. I look forward to the next hunnert challenges!!
To celebrate this momentous occasion, here is this week's terrific challenge:

Long-time readers know how much I love lilacs. When I said at the beginning of this post that I had lots to do in the next couple of weeks, one of those dos will be burying my face in these flowers for minutes at a time, as often as I can!! I hope your creative imagination will have you smelling the heady and intoxicating aroma as you enjoy the collage.
