Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co., Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV 9-21-2012

It's Friday and time for another challenge at Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.'s Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV.  This week, another of our talented DT, Davi Reid, gave us an awesome challenge to use "plant life."  Using plant life was a first for me!  Check out Davi's tutorial and give it a try - there is a wonderful stamp set up for a prize!  When you get to SpeedyTV, click on Tutorial Time and the latest challenge - and it will take you right there.  While you are in that neighborhood, please check out the beautiful cards for some inspiration by our talented DT.

And, since I didn't know the name of the pretty flowers I used, I asked the ladies on MFP - and Karen Knegtens identified the flower as an alstromeria.  (And, that is the name of Davi Reid's blog too (one or our team mates).  I don't know many types of flowers (except the usuals, roses, mums, petunias, daisies, sunflowers, etc.), and usually buy them in pots to set outside (no weeding).  The following is a picture I took of the little bouquet:

Thanks, Karen - I appreciate your help!
