Winner winner chicken dinner!

Happy Saturday everyone! Today is the day that I picked a winner from the comments and I used a random number generator to keep it fair and square! Here is the lucky winner:

Danielle, congrats!! Email me your address so I can send those stamps out and you can hopefully have as much fun with them as I do!! Thanks everyone for stopping by and commenting!

This past week I took off using vacation time so that we could get our garden going.  It has done nothing but piss rain ALL WEEK LONG.  On the bright side, I'm not at work!! haha And another good thing was that the more than an inch of rain we got watered the new garden bed nicely! We are expecting yet another inch or so in rain this coming week! I better build an arc!!

Here are a few pics of the new garden bed.  Here is after John got it all filled and rototilled, ready to be planted!!

 Me planting the tomatoes!

 We're getting there!!
 All done!
 The plants you see on the ground to the left have yet to be planted, that's today's job. In between the rain of course.  They are hollyhocks, lupines, 4 o'clocks and some other flowers.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Happy Victoria Day Canada!

I'm enjoying my day even though it's cold and crappy out! I was able to make a couple more ATC's (could I be on a roll??)

It's funny, I saw Madonna's performance at the Billboard awards doing a tribute to Prince and all I could think of was "meh"... for one I was confused as to why she was covering "nothing compares to U", I thought she would have done a Prince song? And her recent shananigans with her dressing like she's in her twenties still and flashing that poor girl on stage just brought to mind that song by Trooper called "3 dressed up as a 9" so I had to do the ATC. That was my inspiration behind this card. I do like Madonna but I'm pissed about all the reports that she has been leaving fans waiting for hours at her concerts, like be on time!! How hard should that be?? I've been to many concerts and they have been big names like Alice Cooper, John Mellancamp, Fleetwood Mac, Def Leppard, Judas Pries, etc.. and they have ALL been on time!!  Hmm... could I be a teller of unpopular truths???? haha

Ok I'm done with my rant. Here is a pic of my vegetables and plants getting hardened off, the big plant is this Saturday!!
More pics to come! Have a great day!

ATC Trio!!

Yes, that's right, I made an ATC trio!! I know, shut the front door!! It's been so long and I have been so out of the ATC scene that I made myself make a trio today and man it felt good!! I used the same color combo and some fabulous women stamps by Viva Las VegaStamps and bam! Here you have it:

Here is "never have to say sorry"
and here is "Sweet woman" (I know, I know, this will piss some people off.. but such is life...)
and last but not least "the same mistake"
Tell me what your fave ATC is and I'll be doing a draw to give away two stamps that I had duplicates for (never used and from the fabulous Viva Las VegaStamps!):
I will pick a random name from those who comment on May 28th!

Here is a project life layout I did also, look at me catching up!!

I hope to be planting my first garden during the May long weekend so I will post some pics! Have a great week everyone!

It's May!

I can't believe it's May 1st today! The sun is shining and I planted some strawberry plants outside! This year is my first year that I am attempting a garden. I started a bunch of seeds last month and so far have hollyhocks, zinnias, tomatoes, peppers, sunflowers, watermelons, 4 o'clocks, lupines, cauliflower, green onions, strawberries, lavender, portulcacas, and a few more I can't remember right now!  Here are some pics of my fledgling garden:

Check out the sunflowers!
 And some tomatoes and sunflowers:
 The Coleus was sooo easy to grow from seed!!
 Pepper fledglings!
ps. I HATED these Jiffy pots, they dried out too fast, like daily, and I ended up putting them into the black plastic transplant pots.
 I have kept a journal so I know what does well and how long it took seeds to sprout!
And in scrappy news here are a few project life layouts I have done:

There just isn't enough time!! I wanted to detail and wash my car this weekend but never got to it.  I did go the butcher's and buy some filets and we barbequed last night and they were delish!!!!  Tomorrow is back to the grind for a full week, heavy sigh.... oh the things I could if I didn't have to work but still got paid!!
