Happy Friday, peeps!  Yay, it’s the weekend…do you have some fun stuff planned?  I hope to do some cleaning up…and stamping!  I have one more thank you card, this time using the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary:


and the new, uber-cute set, You’re Sublime:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings You're Sublime Stampin Up

This looks a tad bit busy, but I thought with all the colors of the flowers in the wheelbarrow, I could get away with the plaid from Farmers Market and the stripes from Sweet Lil’ Things!  I stamped the image in Black Stazon on our watercolor paper and colored them with an aquapainter:


I added a little sparkle to the centers; some “grass” to ground it, a couple of Watermelon Wonder banners and a little Pear Pizzazz bow!  It’s all on a Very Vanilla card base!  Thanks for visiting today!

More dirt removal:




This was on the other side of our porch….John put a conduit under the porch in which to hold the wiring….and yes, he had to uproot almost my entire flower bed.  It was mostly mint, because the builders chose that location to dump all the stones from when my house was built!!!  So it’s almost impossible to plant anything there.   But anyone who has had mint seed in the garden knows that it takes NO TIME at all for it to come back!  So I’m not concerned!  Anyway, Cassidy had fun for about three shovelsful, and then she was done!!!  But she “helped”!

Very cute card, LeAnne! Love the colors and that adorable wheelbarrow! Great job with the sketch! Yes, your mint will grow back! It's almost like a weed! LOL We have a huge bush of it and have to trim it almost to the ground when we don't use it but you can always count on that stuff to come back! Enjoy the nice weather we are having! It could stay like this the rest of the summer! :)

I absolutely love this card!!! So beautifully coloured and the choice of DSP panel is perfect. Thanks for sharing the photos of your little garden 'helper' sons (6 and 4) love a particular style of gardening...they made 'medicine' out of the dirt and leaves yesterday. :)

What a super cute card! I love your play of pattern! Glad you had a helper to work in your flowerbed. I know exactly what you mean about mint too. It lasts just through just about anything! Thanks for playing along this week at Create with Connie and Mary!
