Sneaking in here with another quick little post today; I needed some thank you cards, and I just loved the Stampin 411 sketch this week:

I stuck to the sketch literally, using the one of the bolder-imaged sheets from the new Floral District DP.  I usually tend to use smaller prints, but I really liked this bold one once I started playing around with it:


I used flowers from Itty Bitty Bits and popped them up; the sentiment is from Tiny Tags, and it is topped off (or maybe I should say “bottomed off”) with a pretty stitched Daffodil Delight bow.  EASY, fun, cute sketch!

Yesterday we had a nice, soft steady rain.  I was happy because our garden needed it, and I wouldn’t have to water my new hanging basket I got on Saturday:


Isn’t that amazing?  A local Amish market was selling it for a reasonable price, too!  THIS is what it looked like this morning when I went outside:


It was literally resting on the ground!  I guess the water soaked it so much and the ground was so wet, it just bent over!!!  Thanks for visiting today!!

What a gorgeous creation, LeAnne! I love this color palette and the sweet stamps you used.

Hope all is well with you, Kiddo ... sending hugs!

I really like the color combo on this card...something different! I have the same angel in my yard. She is surrounded by hosta and daylillies. Please send some of the rain my way, we really need it.

I have a beautiful plant from the Amish and when I go to the cabin I put it in a tub of water because I water it twice a day. It looked so bad when we got him and there was a log of water still. Today it looks really bad. I just don't know what to think. I am sure yours will be fine when you get it back up. Your garden is lovely.
So is your card. Really different colors for you. Very pretty. TFS
