Then I started to crop/enhance the pics when a severe thunderstorm moved into the area. Don't know about you, but here that means shut the computer off. So much for getting my blog updated.
Fridays are always busy days for me - cardiac rehab in the morning; shopping in the afternoon. Dinner needs to be started about the time I get everything put away.
Anyway, here I am - late again.
Our challenge this week is to use an image that represents me and explain why. Stamping Tilda was my first choice, but I didn't have any papers that looked like a "Stamp Mansion". Then I decided to use gardening images. I don't have just one that "is me", so I made a little picture book that resembles me most of the summer.
I think the background paper came from my friend Kim. The Shed is a Magnolia stamp. I trimmed out 2 extra sets of flower pots and attached them with dimensionals over the printed ones.
The flowers in the wagon are also dimensional, but they don't show very well.
The lace is from my stash. All roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The first step in planting a garden is to spade it up. Tilda is using the wrong shovel - it should have a pointed end, not flat.
I used Cinnamon Brown Fun Flock to represent the dirt.
The fence is a Magnolia Doohickey Die - Lovely Fence.
Once the garden has been spaded up and raked to remove stones and weeds, it's time to plant!
Tilda looks a little worried, but it seems like she's doing a good job with the planting.
All Tilda's are colored with Copics, done last year so no color list.
Once the seeds have germinated, the garden must be weeded and watered every day or so or when ever Tilda has time.
Tilda added some annuals from the garden center to get a head start on color!
The grass was cut using another Doohickey Die named Grass.
This is me nearly all summer! Planting then weeding and watering the flower beds around my home. Sometimes the grass seems that deep!
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoying my garden with me.
Be sure to visit my wonderful teammates' blogs to see what stamp resembles them.
