The sweet scent of LILACS!

I love lilacs! I love their sweet scent, their color, the way they hang like grape clusters from the bushes and their bright green leaves too. I love lilacs!

My lilacs are in bloom right now and this Gruffies stamp looks a lot like what I probably look like when I scoop up an armful of these fragrant beauties. I colored this Gruffies image with prisma color pencils. The background paper was a little scrap from my scrap box that was such a perfect match. The ribbon was a find in the sale bin at Michaels. Isn't it fun when all of the colors from various embellishments just fit together?

These are my lilacs. And here is my pup, Gabriel, enjoying the lilacs too.

I sure wish you could smell the sweet scent of my lilacs today. :)


  1. What a fabulous card -- love the little guy sniffing the lilacs.

    There's nothing like the smell of lilacs in the spring, is there?
