I've had a Post-It note on my desk for ages that says, "Woodgrain on Lucky Limeade." I can't remember when or why I wrote it but it seemed like it could work on a card for the latest ColourQ challenge. I paired the idea with Papertrey Ink's In Bloom flower which is quite possibly my all time favourite flower image. I stamped it with Wisteria Wonder ink on WW cardstock, fussy cut it and then outlined it with a WW-esque Copic. I love the way all those petals pop now! I'm also going to play along with the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
I ended up doing a lot more work in the yard yesterday than just delivering beer! The boys could not, of course, stop at just replanting parts of the hedge. Oh no. They had to take an entire tree out too. Now normally chopping down trees makes me really sad but this one was not particularly healthy and also was so dense that nothing was growing under it including the hedge. So out it came. Unfortunately it was at the bottom of the hill on our property and all of it had to be dragged up the hill so it could be trucked away. I did alooooooot of dragging! It was worth it though - it's so much brighter now down in that corner of the yard and also our kitchen! Next job will be to get some grass plugs in there which will hopefully thrive now that there's sunlight in that corner.
