Share the Dirt

I'm home now from my emotional past few days. My Dad passed away after a month long stay in the hospital, suffering two strokes and a mild heart attack, all this on top of his already diagnosed alzhiemers. He is now up in heaven, tending to the garden, his all-time favorite place to spend his time.

I needed to get back into the swing of things, so I made a card for the CAS challenge over at The Outlawz. Chocolate is the theme this week, so I went with chocolate brown cardstock. The stamp set is by Paper Smooches, Green Thumb, as are the dies. It was so fun coloring up these little images and planting them - the peas are covering up an ink smudge. So fun and also so simple.

Some challenges I'd like to submit my card to are:
Dream Valley Challenges - Summer Days
Hobby Cutz - Summer
Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Anything Goes

Enjoy your today. It's hubby's birthday - wonder where he'll want to go out to eat?!!
