Chirp Up!

I made this card for Jill's mom, Marilyn, because Jill put a call out for RAKS. Her mom just needs a little pick me up right now and I hope this helps. I used my SU Very Punny set and a premade card that had a square punched out of it. I found this awesome trim on clearance at Jo-Anns for 20 cents a yard. I think it might be a little big (overwhelming) for this card. I'll probably use the rest on a sb lo. I added glitter glue to the negatives and primas on top with buttons to kind of break up the color. Colored the image in with aquapainter and ink pads...Marvelous Magenta, Certainly Celery, Cool Caribbean. Sorry I had to take a pic of the card on it's back because I couldn't get a good pic of it upright.

Yesterday was great! I got all of the hollyhock seeds my neighbor gave me two years ago planted and watered in. I also planted some mint, three more saplings, sweet peas (flowers) and now I'm just a little sore. My morning glories are growing well and hopefully by the end of summer will be in full bloom, I hate that they're annual!

I just wish they'd come back every year on their own, oh well. So tonight after my "scrubby" gets home we'll plant the whole garden, pumpking, green beans, corn, cucumber, squash, and some other things. Hope all does well so I'll want to plant again. We went to our friend's house yesterday to celebrate their daughter's birthday and had a great time. We had a potluck and the kids just had a blast!

The kids always have lots of fun together. When can we get them together again?
