The question asked…what is your inspiration? Colors? Flowers? Number? Wine?

My Inspiration were the flowers, color, and the silver pail vases!


Here’s my Card!


I added the yellow flocking to the flower and bees! It looks like real pollen!!!


Here is how I stamped the inside of the card!


I didn’t carry the flocking into the inside…I think it would have rubbed off.

Here is my Card, again!


This is even cuter in person!


I went to swimnastics today (it will be yesterday as you read this!) it was great (I missed all but one day, last week!) It was great to see everyone again! After I got back and changed, I went and picked the last of my lettuce (sad face). I looked at what was in the fridge and for the most part, it was wilting bad. I tried to resoak and see if the bad wilted would wash away…it didn’t, so I ended up throwing all down the garbage disposal. I do have one container left, it was what I picked today. I then up rooted all the lettuce stems and discarded them. Now I have to figure out what to grow in place of the lettuce (I can’t plant anymore lettuce till the fall). Mr. Hubster wants to try carrots again. I guess I’ll have to go look at seed and what is a good veggie to grow now in hot temps! (beside carrots!) I also picked a few tomatoes off the vine…the grape tomatoes are still producing, they are getting taller too! The regular container tomatoes I planted, I picked 3 off the bush today…I have about another 4-5 green ones and then just as many that are too small and green. I then watered all my plants and came in to play with the lettuce. All in all, the garden had been good this year!Must have been all the rain we had in the early and late Spring! The Summer has been hot and humid. We caught a break the last couple of weeks with cooler temps and not as humid. However, the humid heat is coming back. We also will be getting some rain Thursday, with a chance on Friday and Saturday too. We take it as it comes! After all this is not in our control!!! I will be at Swimnastics all this week, hopefully…I did finally catch up with all the housework! Now to get myself back on a schedule again!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Garden Love to you ALL!


Let me know what you think!
