The Pansy is the flower given by Ophelia to Hamlet in Shakespeare's play, Hamlet. When she presented him with them she said, "There's Pansies; that's for thoughts." The word pansy comes the French word pensée, meaning 'thought.' Another little fun fact about the word pansy is that Margaret Mitchell, writer of, Gone With The Wind, had originally selected Pansy O'Hara as the name for the heroine of her novel. It's a cute name, but I like Scarlet much better!
The little penny wrapper happened by accident. I was actually looking for seed packets and came across this. Having the origin of the word Pansy in my head, I thought it made sense to add "A penny for your thoughts?" as well.
Are you mowing your yards yet? It's ridiculous here. Soooo much rain and the grass and dandelions are taking over. I can't stand them ugly things! Now, if I had a yard full of these gorgeous flowers, I'd let them take over. However, since I have to live in reality, I'll just cover cards with them. This beautiful image in the oval frame, is from Bugaboo in Skye's Pencil Pic Collection titled, Pansies.
I hope you found this card inspirational and if it has fallen short of that, that's okay because the amazing ladies over at Make It Monday are sure to please your creative muse! We'd love to have you join in our linky party this week.
