Happy Tuesday folks!
So how was your weekend? Great I hope with lots of fun stuff! For us it was time to get a little of the garden organized! I've neglected it for so long that the weeds were getting tall in our vegetable garden and I've been wanting to get it cleaned out for ages but never seemed to have the time. We visited the garden section of our local Home Depot and picked up just a few new plants to see how they grow this year. We have tomato, peppers, lettuce, blueberries and blackberry plants....I didn't even know they would grow here in Miami!!! LOL Anyway, it is nice to see the two veggie boxes planted again (one with flowers, the other with the fruits and veggies), and I'll keep you all posted as to how they grow! Might have an issue with the little garden lizards again which devoured my moonflowers last year and I was totally disheartened by that!
It's another challenge over at Midnight Madness and I really enjoyed making this card as it was a fun challenge not to have one main image this time! Are you all ready to play?
This weeks sketch...it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between.

My projects this week were a card and little mini gift bag using the beautiful flowers from Petaloo! It was hard to get a good photo this time as they seemed to disappear against the white background and the sun was so strong outside that it was not a good photo either, so I ended up taking a photo in my bathroom to get a neutral but better background!

The dp is from Tim Holtz, mini gift bag was part of a secret santa gift from another DT, flowers by Petaloo, word stickers and gems all from Micheal's.
I hope you will play along with us this week and don't forget to stop by my DT sisters and leave some love!
Before I leave I want to share a couple of photos of my little one who spent the afternoon with his grandfather cleaning out the Koi pond! He had a great time petting the fish!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
