New cards

I have made a few cards to show.  These all use card stock from Stampin' Up! and the friend stamp is also from Stampin' Up!  The other images are from Club Scraps new May kit Wild Flowers.  The ink pads are from Stampin' Up! and they are Bermuda Bay, Lovely Lilac & So Saffron.  The card with the Saffron base is regular white card stock that has been sprayed with Glimmer Mist Pearl.  I love the effect.  The other 2 cards used Glossy White card stock.  I will probably be using the Wild Flowers kit a lot.

I've been spending a good amount of time working in the yard and came across this fellow out back near our shed.  He was waiting for me to leave and I was ready to leave.  I think we have at least 2 of them in our yard as hubby came across a bigger one while cutting the grass.  At least we don't have any rodents or copper heads thanks to these guys.  I just don't want to see them very often. 

I've been hitting Lowe's Home Improvement and getting some great plants at a reduced price.  I love hitting their 50% off bin.  Just got another azalea and planted it yesterday before it got too hot.

Now to get on to some crafting for a while.  I'm  working now on the Brewed Awakenings kit from Club Scrap.  I will show some when I get them finished.
