Enjoy Your Special Day

I hope all of  you had a wonderful weekend. We were very busy around here making garden boxes..pics below. We sold our swimming pool a few months back. We decided to put in a raised garden and a shed where is used to be. Well, for now we are going to have just the cement. We will us it for a dance floor for our daughter's wedding next summer. Once the wedding is done we will build the shed. So needless to say I didn't get to spend much time stamping. I did manage to make this wedding card.

For the background I did the same technique I did on this card. When I inked up the stamp, I didn't worry about making sure the entire stamp was covered. I stamped it at random lengths because I didn't want an even edge. I then stamped the flowers and the sentiment. I stamped an additional flower on a seperate piece of cardstock and fussy cut it. I attached it to the card with my dots. I then attached the panel to the card base with foam tape.

Here is our weekend project.

Not too bad for two people with no idea what we were doing. The true test will be seeing if we can actually grow anything. Of course it's too late to plant this year. The second picture is our dog Jessie helping me. She has this thing for flashlights. She thought that's what I had..haha. 

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for this weeks ColourQ. You're going to love this weeks colors!
