Moms Gardens

 I came across these photos of mom and dads gardens. I couldn't pass it up. I had to scrap a few layouts with it! Their gardens were sooooo beautiful

                                                                        Every single one of their gardens were tended to like it was their pride and joy...the key word is JOY. They would get up before the sun to get out in the gardens and weed and water and care for those flowers and veggies.
Mom and dad canned all their fruits and veggies too. Pickles, beets, tomatoes, applesauce, jams and jellies, oh and Red Hot Cinnamon apple rings. Nummmmo

I remember vividly all their gardens. I drive by the house yet but the new owners never saved the gardens. That makes me sad but at least we have the memories. The sweet sweet memories.

Now I dream of our gardens being so beautiful. This year, will be our year for those gorgeous gardens.

Happy Spring?? Well, almost spring and just the thought of it makes me happy! One of the Facebook groups I belong to is 4G's Girls, Giggles, Glitter and Glue. It is a fabulous bunch of ladies!

We have an exchange coming up that is a SPRINGTIME Welcome Sign. This is mine. So I made this one that says "HAPPY SPRING" across the plaque on the little flags that are strung across it. I made little glitter clouds and a bright beautiful sun. Some little bunnies and some pretty birds to add cheer. 
I am really happy with how it turned out. If you like what I have made, please leave me a comment. Have a great day and soon......HAPPY SPRING!

I actually saw this on You Tube. I could help but try one. Once I did I was hooked and made several! I have a magnet on the flap so it stays closed. Inside there are 6 Birthday cards and matching envelopes. I KNOW I am making more. They are so easy and so much fun to make. I have different styles of patterned cardstock and paper that I cannot wait to make into these card holders. 

Arent they just adorable. Now I am going to go make more. If you like them please leave a comment for me :)
