Sunflower Chick Retreat

Hello all you fabulous paper artists in blogland!

Be Slow to Speak
For let him who wants to enjoy like and see
good days [good --- whether apparent or not] keep
his tongue free from evil and his lips from guile
(treachery, deceit).

Happy Wednesday to you, it's that time of the week when Heartfelt Creations comes out with fresh ideas using the Classic Sunflower Collection that will sure to inspire you today and always. I really like how this card turned out especially the flowers. Doesn't this card give you the feeling of a nice fall day! 
Maybe I'm telling my age, but when I was a little girl my grandparents lived right next door to us and they had chickens that ran all over out doors, they even had the small chicken coop just about like the one in the picture. I can still see the sunflowers and mums growing in their garden along with all the veggies. Lots of good memories of my grandparents!
