Card & Tag Combo~What's Blooming In Your Garden Two~Food For Thought
Good Sunday Morning!
I have been up since 3am.....thinking about life...what it brings to you...how short it is....what you take from it....and sometimes how to deal with it...just random thoughts going thru my mind...enough to keep me awake......
I made another set of a card and tag for theJoan's Gardens Card Challenge and Tag Challenge...I emailed her and asked how many we could enter and her answer was "as many as you want...the more the better"....loved that answer as it relaxes one mind to "create".
I saw the layout for this card in the Papercrafts Go To Sketches designed by Ashley C. Newell.....I changed it a bit by adding embossing across the top and of course my tag....my plan is to do each and every sketch in the magazine as there are 282 sketches and some are very different form the normal A2 card.....
My next photo's are part two of "Whats blooming in Your Garden".....notice my cat Kitty Witty laying on the bench (which is getting a new coat of paint very soon)......the Bachelor Buttons are almost glowing...and yesterday my first orange poppy burst open...hope the others hold off as we have rain predicted all week and its hard on the delicate poppy petals and I hope to be able to enjoy them a bit....the pink flower is my "tree peony"...the blooms are the size of a dessert plate.
the lilacs...the dark purple one was basically grown form a "stick" of a lilac..it is beautiful...the two tone lilac is one I have been searching for...for five years..called a French Lilac...it is still a small bush with only 2 blooms on it...I found it last year of all places "Lowes"
Last photo is of the wonderful supper I made for my hubby and me last night...though a bit annoyed as he showed up late and didn't get to appreciate my wonderful "presentation"...lol...it was Southwestern Salmon Steak...recommended by my stepson...and it was super delicious, fresh home grown aspargus grown about 5 miles from here, smashed potatos (recipe from Pioneer Womens blog) and a loaded green salad with poppy seed dressing (which came out of the bottle way too fast)!!
