Peace and Strength - Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday, thanks for stopping by today, I hope you had a great weekend!  We had a busy weekend, Graduation Party for DS's GF on Saturday, Sunday I spent some crafty time with my friend Sue (that's always a good time), then did some more flower planting.












After almost 8 years of not having a garden, DH put one back in this year (fenced it off from those pesky rabbits), we also planted a few more trees out back and tons of flowers (most came from DS's greenhouse class).  New for us, we also are trying our hand at Strawberries, and just transplanted them from hanging baskets to large planters that sit on our deck.  The best part - we finally purchased new patio furniture to enjoy it all!


Oh that's right, you didn't stop by to hear my rambling, you came by to see what I've been creating! It's Kitchen Sink Monday, so I dusted off another wonderful floral image and paired it up with my newly purchased Out of Print paper from Basic Grey to create a Sympathy card.  For Sketch inspiration I used The Paper Players Challenge 53.

What a lovely outlook in your garden all those fields, lovely. Love the patio furniture too. There is nothing nicer than your own strawberries, I picked some this weekend from our allotment, they are the best I have ever tasted. The good thing about strawberries is that they produce there own runners making more free plants. Love your card too. Tracy x
