CAS57: Bright Friendship

oh my GAAWWWD has our weather been nice!  and i SO needed it!  i LOVE gardening and i have not been able to do much of it since having pezzy, especially in the front yard as she is a runner – run in the road, run off down the sidewalk.  i DID get some gardens started in the back last year but not much.  SO after THREE seasons of total neglect other than the bare minimum spring cut backs i finally get to do some work!  so yesterday we all got out there and cleaned up all the beds and the yard, cut back some trees, picked up random trash, etc.  and WOW do i have some digging up and separating to do!  i started the gardens when we moved here 5 years ago from itty bitty plants i got at the BEST garden place on earth – Bluestone Perennials – GREAT prices, amazing customer service and a HUGE slection of plants!  well those itty bitty teen weeny plants have REALLY flourished and i need to get in there and do some dividing so i can plant in my back beds – gotta love free plants right?  they have a butterfly garden package pezzy and i are hoping to install in the back yard below one side of the deck.

it felt AMAZING to be out in the yard and feeling like there is hope for spring to arrive after all of our snow and bitter cold!  in fact the snow is ALMOST melted!!!!



Head over to the store blog for Susana’s Custom Art & Cards – she is offering up some amazing blog candy to celebrate the next Victoria Case release happening on Friday with another fun blog hop!


SO i mentioned hubby & i went out to dinner saturday night right – it was an hour wait for a table BUT so nice to be off together with no children.  while we were getting ready Pezzy did her first dress-up in momma’s clothes:

she is holding na old pool toy she has grown bizarrly attached to.  and NO her socks do not match – she REFUSES to wear matching socks.  ahhhh i remember the days when i fit into that cute little skirt……doubt i will see those days again – my hips will NEVER be the same post Pezzy!

is she a total ham OR WHAT???

but enough about all that – i DO have a project for you!  i have been TOTALLY absent from my SCS gallery since before CHA!  ACK – i used to participate in several of the challenges every week!  so i got up this morning and checked the Clean & Simple challenge.

The CAS challenge was to layer 2 different shapes.  i used 2 different nesties:

i LOVE this super happy K&Co pad i found on a recent rare trip out to AC Moore!  my main image is a CTMH stamp and i used a light coating of Creative Inspirations paints to stamp with so it has loads of shimmer.  in fact it was difficult to get a non-blinding pic!  i sponged the paint around the edge with a sponge dabber too.  i TOTALLY copied the ribbon treatment from lazylizard’s entry.  and of COURSE those perfect little pearl drops are Viva Decor Pearl Pen!

well i have lots of shipping to get out the door this morning so i better scoot.  Pezzy is going to playschool at a different community center next fall so this afternoon she is going to a class at the new one to start getting used to it.  i hope to get some videos filmed for the newsletter website!

hope your week is off to a GREAT start!!!


better blog siggy
