Well hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I know that I did. I'm sorry that I did not post all weekend, but it was simply too beautiful to stay indoors!

The weather report called for rain on Saturday and Sunday. Well, we only got a little rain Sunday evening ~ which turned out perfect.

Hubby's been getting the ground ready for a garden and he's been like a little boy! We purchased our home 2 years ago this August, so we've been slowly doing things to fix it up. Well this year we've got a lot planned.
We built an overhang going out the back door last year and this year we are going to paint it. Yes, we should of last year but there was so many other things we wanted to do. So we are going to paint that and hang some more lights. It's dark at night when I let the dog out (she's worse than a baby. She gets me up at least twice a night to go out - it's no wonder I only fell down the stairs once!!!) so we are putting lights up out there. I love to sit outside when the evening is nice under the patio lights. I've already bought chairs to match the paint. And hubby's going to make some borders to put around the sun room's windows that we will paint to match. There I go again --- the choo-choo jumped the track again!!
The garden, yes. That's what I was talking about. Well, we have this long stretch out back of just house wall. Well sitting there talking the other night I mentioned that it would be nice to have a flower bed there too. The flowers would give a little "pretty" to the long stretch of house. And we have the A/C unit outside which is ugly itself. So yesterday hubby made a flower bed for me. Well, he framed it in and we went and got a trailer load of dirt. It's going to be nice. I so want to have everything up and going for when our dear friend from California comes to visit. It's only a couple of weeks away!!! There is so much to do ~ but she's not coming to see the house, she's coming to visit us. But I still want it pretty! I will post pictures as soon as the flowers are planted.
Ok, enough ramble ramble. On to the card.

As I mentioned I really did not get too much done this weekend ~ but I did manage to make a card for the challenge over at SCS. I love their weekly challenges and card sketches. I truly have learned a lot from there. There are no stamp shows or stores around here like when I was in California, so I rely on learning all the new things from SCS.

So you must go there to see what new ideas they are cooking up. This one is called the Tri Fold pocket card. Go here for the directions, I'd love to see your version.

I have no stamps to share with you on this card, but look at the paper. Isn't it yummy!!! It's from theangelcompany™ and it's their Juliette collection. It's one that I've got to buy more of!!
So I just followed the directions of Beate's tutorial and used the Juliette paper and that was it! It was really an easy card to make. Of course like Beate said make a template if it's one that your going to make more of! OH!! And the flowers, I used my EK Success and Friskars punches to make the flowers so they'd match.

This is a picture of the insert for the card.

Well - I'm off for now. I've got some blog surfing to do since I missed everything this weekend!

Have a super great day!!!
