For the Grad


IMG_0227


 Happy Monday morning!

I had my whole gang home again this weekend, it is starting to feel like the norm again. Saturday I was fortunate that Ardyth was up near my house dropped her daughter off at Art Camp so we were able to meet for lunch. The rest of the weekend was busy with scoping out the existing gardens and seeing what was growing, deciding what was coming out, what was moving and what we still need. That is going to be a work in progress. A trip to the garden centre and baskets and planters were purchased, I think that will be it for the annuals this year. What did you do this weekend?

We got some much needed rain on Sunday so a chance to get my craft on. I made a few needed graduation cards starting with this one using my new Simon Says Stamp grad die and an embossing folder I have had for a long time. I cut the grad out with MFT Stamps Gold Sparkle cardstock, love the fabulous shine.
