Watering Can Love


A clean and simple entry for this week's Unity Friends With Flair blog hop.  I used 3 different KOMs for this card as well as the colours from last week's Play Date Cafe challenge.  The green can is from the November 2010 KOM - Picture Perfect, the yellow can is from July 2009 - Pocket Full Of... and the sentiment if from July 2010 - Happily Ever After.  A real blast from the past card!  


And I thought I'd share a couple of pictures from home.  We've had some really high tides this month and the dock has been disappearing underwater almost every day!  

Even the little island out in the bay has been getting almost completely swallowed up! 


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft) PTI, (Old Olive, Daffodil Delight) Stampin' Up

Stamps:  (Green can from Nov 2010 KOM - Picture Perfect, Yellow can  from July 2009 KOM - A Pocket Full Of..., Sentiment from July 2010 KOM - Happily Ever After) Unity Stamp Co.
Ink:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Rich Razzleberry) Stampin' Up

I love the idea of the watering cans in love - they look like they're holding hands :) Super cute!
And *whoa* on the water - I'd be freaking out!!! It sure looks gorgeous, though, especially compared with the near-zero freezing cold rain we have today :)
