Fabulous Florets…far from home…

Hi All,

Summer is finally making an appearance this week in Southern Oregon.  After weeks of hail and rain the sun has finally peeked through and brought some warmer temps to the area.    Wicketcat still isn’t all that trusting when I put her out for her daily dose of Vitamin D.   A couple of weeks ago and again last week she got inadvertently left out during the hail storm to end all hail storms.  Luckily she had shelter under our front deck.  I did go out and try to rescue her but she couldn’t hear me over the sound of the hail and I couldn’t see her.  Granted I also couldn’t see my white truck sitting 20 feet away either!   Check what else got blown in on the spring winds….

Here’s a quick share of a card I received in the mail recently from a friend.

My friend and fellow demonstrator Buffy Cooper surprised me a short while back with a colorful creation using the Summer Mini’s featured set Fabulous Florets.  This stamp set coordinates not only with the new Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper but also with the Scrappin’ Kit Playful Polka Dots also from the Summer Mini.  To see what else is available from the Summer Mini click on the picture of the mini in the sidebar to download your very own copy.

Oh…and if you are looking for a fab blog to follow click on over to Buffy’s new WordPress blog for fun, inspiration and some neighborly chat Southern style (Buffy’s from Virginia  :D).

Wondering where those tiny scallops came from?  Took me a little bit to figure it out myself.  Buffy used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and hid all but the little scallop edges under the focal image base.  Neat trick huh?     Oh and do you see the new Flower Garden Embossing Folder peeking out as well?  What a lovely way to add some texture don’t you think?  You know you are loved when you receive a card with numerous hand cut images!   Thanks Miss Buffy.  

I’m guessing a bit as to the supplies but I think this is what Buffy used.
