Monday April 21

Okay, I know this is from last weeks challenge, and I've made one pocket card already, but I had wanted to try this idea out and thought it was something I could do it easily. I could give you all the details of the troubles I had, but I won't.....It just took a bit longer to come together than I thought. I do, however, think that it would make a good springtime Thank-You.....that is if spring ever decides to come to the Edmonton area. The scary thing is to think that we've already had it. I saw this blossom put on the end of the Wonderful Words on another blog.....reminiscent of the watercolour garden combination....and thought I would use it. (Sorry I can't remember which blog )
If you're in Alberta....stay warm
If it's snowing where you are....stay warm
If you have beautiful leaves and blossoms on your trees and your bulbs are coming up.....don't take them for granted!!!! Stop and smell them, roses or not!

Love this! What a cute little thank you or hello or for any gardener! I love seed packets. I always buy way too much, more than I can actually plant, but I can't help myself...all those pretty pictures of what my garden should look like *sigh*

It's 70 degree's here today and it just started getting nice last week...but I feel your pain. Stay warm and remember no winter lasts forever and no spring skips it's turn...it's a comin'!
