if at first you don't succeed...

re scan the card... the original scan would not upload a second time after the site ate it when i was typing in here no matter how many times i tried... this card above was done yesterday with Tim Holtz distress embossing powders and a brass stencil of a pumpkin. This card is all hero arts stamps and the snowflakes on the blue are done with the cast a way ink and heat set. (the story about this one is in the post from a few days ago) The fence is almost in ( the cedar parts ) then comes the staining then the spray painting the grass as to where the next beds will go along that fence line. and start the killing off process. Planning to pick up more trees and flowering shrubs next spring but, every single perennial we have needs divided this year... It used to take me three or four years to reach this point but, this year the yard has gone crazy. the Plum tree in the front has now had 5 branches break off of it, we've trimmed alot of the branches ( fruit is not ready to pick yet but the tree is just over loaded) Picked an entire box of Peaches yesterday. ( a few are still on the trees and not quite ready yet) Still pretty fun considering we were not supposed to get fruit from them till next year... The Pears are still growing yet. We are going to have Corn on the cob tonight with dinner that came out of the garden last night. ( First ones this year ) J's swimming lessons are in the mornings for the next two weeks worth session then School starts the day after Labor day this year. I don't know yet if they continue with lessons after the summer is over or not? I think we are mostly ready with all the supplies, just need to buy new shoes and a few odds and ends.
