A Pup in the Garden......

Coffee of the Day - Creme Brulee

Do you ever have pups in your garden? I do, but anymore I don't mind. :) used to be that I would get so aggrivated at them for dancing and prancing in the flowers, but really, what is life if you can't play in the flowers along the way? so I just try to coax them over to the grass and plant more seeds. You also have to understand that my hubby and his lawnmower do more damage than our 2 dogs could ever think of...... sigh..... but then I stop and remember how much I enjoy the aroma of fresh mowed grass....... life is also a LOT about perspective and the choice we make in how we respond to situations along the way.......... grins!

So I will smile when the dogs chase butterflies like in this adorable digi by Patti Moore of Pholkart Blessings. I am a newbie to her blog and Etsy store, but a quick convert I can tell you! There was a challenge today over at Sweet 'n Sassy on SNR to create a card that showed what was in your garden. I chose this sketch from i heart 2 stamp and went to town. papers are Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety - see even my paper matches the theme! yep, I am pathetic, I know. :) I made my own flower embellie using a bit of a bath scrunchy that is slowly falling apart. why throw it away when it is perfect for the crafty stash?! you know me and my repurposing! I added rub-ons to these wonderful big brads. you should give it a try sometime! lots of fun to do! of course I had to get my PINK on somewhere, so this pup is sportin' a pink collar painted in shimmerz. the butterfly is also painted in several colors of shimerz.

have a great day and remember to dance in YOUR garden today!
