I'm popping in to night with a sweet thank you card that I made last night. I used the Sweet Pea stamp set from TSG and stamped the main flower image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white cardstock. I then cut the image out - I used an exacto blade to cut out the inner pieces. I then painted the blossoms with Ice Lavendar Shimmerz paint. Very very sparkly in real life. :)
So there you have it... one monochromatic card. I haven't done that in a while. :)
In other news, I have been trying my hand at gardening this year. I decided to try growing some vegetables in containers on my deck. I'm quite excited about this, especially since I came home tonight and checked my pots and noticed that a bunch more seedlings are emerging: pickling cucumbers, snow peas and more green beans. This is in addition to the gourds, peas and green beans that I planted earlier. Woo hoo! They are all doing much better than the pot of peas that I had to start over after the seeds were drowned out in a rain storm a little over a week ago... this time around I have two seedlings. Two itty bittly little plants... ;)
I also bought a cayenne pepper plant and a tomato plant that are growing like crazy (starting to blossom already!). And I started a bunch of hot pepper and green peppers in one of those little hothouse trays... I have over 25 seedlings started. I also started some banana peppers that are just beginning to poke through. Umm yeah... I don't need that many peppers but I didn't anticipate that they would all take. Good thing my dad wants whatever I don't need - he is going to get a boat load of pepper plants! :)
Are you doing any gardening? I think the green beans are going to be my favorite. How about you?
