My Frame of Mind

These are my thoughts, however I may quote those who are smarter and wiser than I am.

New colors of an old version...

nothing new…really.
I love this first design so bad, I think I saw the green combination on the Wizard's Hangout but couldn't find the card, but my first version is here…and now I love it in purples, too!
This next card…took an hour to make…here's why:
First I found the flowers (am trying to exhaust a lot of embellies on hand)
Then had to find some papers to match (or thort-uv match) which took 45 minutes!
Of all the CTMH kits I have, I would never have looked in the fall kit Olivia. Once I started looking at my sample swatches there it was!
Then viola!

It's Alive!

Due to circumstances beyond human control (solely a mole), our artichoke plants had to be taken to a more protective area. That means transplanted into a self-contained box with cement blocks underneath to prevent a certain mole from pulling it down by the roots.
Can you imagine a 5 foot tall plant with a stalk the size of small car tire being reduced to a 10" tall piece of leaf? I mean come on…!

For a quick refresher on the plants as young things, click here.

Anyhoot, shortly after transplanting, the poor things were dumped on by at least 11" of rain, winds up to 50mph, and more rain. There was doubt of survival.
Yesterday being the first sunny day in a really loooooong time, I ventured out.
Lo-and-behold…. It's alive! and ….producing already!

Well, if that weren't enough to throw me into summertime hypertension, I turned to the backside of the property and saw this…in all it's glory….
And wept with joy.

Lovin' Level One Special!

What's a Level 1 you might ask?
Well, years ago when Close to My Heart pioneered the Scrapbook industry with My Reflections, the basic kit was called Level 1…this being all you would need to create a few layouts and add some great My Stickease embellishments to accent. Easy Peasy. Whack slap and glue, done. Or as the company promoted; Faster, Simpler, Easier.
(Level 2 Kits would give you more papers, cardstocks to really let loose, Level 3 would have you on the moon…but for this month's special we'll focus on the Level One special, k?)

Sooooo…this month when you place a $100 order on my website,
you’ll receive one My Reflections® Level 1 kit ($9.95 value) of your choice FREE.  There are many to choose from, too. 
While you're shopping in you jammies, take a gander at the HUGELY reduced- while supply lasts products as well…you will not be dissapointed..
And don't forget that you may qualify for a free or discounted April's Stamp of the Month..and that's no foolin'!
