Happy Tuesday! I am back home from Italy. And I am glad about that. I love Italy but that vacation wasn't very much fun. It was the first time we travelled with our little girl and she had problems with sleeping. I wasn't able to go anywhere when she was supposed to sleep. She wanted me to stay with her all the time and now we are back home she still isn't back to her normal sleeping routine. But I hope that'll change soon!
When I came back home there was a box of new Hero Arts stamps waiting for me! They were from my win of the Mother's Day challenge. I love to play with new stamps! Here is a card I made for this month's "Birthdays, Dads and Grads" Challenge, using this week's Cardpatterns Sketch:
This beautiful swirl stamp is stamped with Hero Arts' Soft Pool Shadow ink. This ink is one of my new favorites!
I hope I'll be able to catch up with you all soon! But I have to do a lot of stuff in the garden first. Yesterday I prepared the vegetable patch, dug out 7 large wheel barrows full of dirt to replace it with 7 large wheel barrows full of compost and planted zucchini and butternut. Today I mowed the lawn. It hurt to destroy that beautiful meadow full of wild flowers, but after Alyssa had a tick the very first day we arrived, I had to cut it down! But I took some photos before doing it:
I hope you are all well! There is still time to enter my give-away, I forgot to say how long it will be open, so I'll draw a winner next Monday (May, 31st)! Have a beautiful day and thank you for visiting!
