Going to be a beautiful day here today, temps to 85 degrees.  We need to transplant some things in the yard and do some pond stuff.....Ugh, not a big gardener, but love the flowers.  I have a lot of Forget-Me-Nots in our yard, they spread like crazy.  Somehow, there is a clump of them thriving behind the garage.  Tomorrow I am going to transplant them to a pond basket and put them in the pond.  I had them for years in there and last year the plant died.  They bloom all summer in the pond, and you just clip them down to the dirt in the Fall and drop them to the bottom of the pond and in the Spring bring them back to the top and they come back year after year.

Today's card is for the challenge at Saturated Canary.  The theme for Challenge #17 is May Flowers.

Digi - Saturated Canary, Dorthy and Toto
Spellbinders Classic Grand Ovals
Flowers were punched from punches from the Paper Studio and Martha Stewart.
Then I used the stylus and a sponge pad to shape them.  Centers are punched small dots.
Sizzix die for leaves.  Sentiment is from dollar bin at Michael's.  Border punch is Martha Stewart.  I ran the card through a Cuddlebug embossing folder. Colored with Copic Markers. Red glitter on her bows on her ruby slippers.  Diamond Stickles on the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend. Until later..............

Sorry I have been a bit hit or miss with comments. We are rushing to get things done here, around the house. DH is having his surgery. Enough said?

This is a wonderful card, and I just wish I could click my heels right now. The gingham edge was brilliant!
