Hello everyone! What a hot day it is again here in New Jersey. We need rain very badly, and as much as I water my plants outside, it's not enough. I have been spending a lot of time recently removing flowers and transplanting some in other spots around the yard. It is hard work for me, as I am a weakling, but it must be done. :)
Onto stamping matters! I made this card for the Clean and Simple Challenge this week over at Splitcoaststampers. We are to use colors similar to Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Pumpkin Pie. A cheery combo, if you ask me!
I brought out my Of The Earth stamp set for the first time - hooray! Sure would make me happy to use all of my stamps that have never seen ink (by me, as some are 'pre-owned'). So now it's one down, many more to go!

By the way, you'll see ribbon here in this close-up, instead of a sentiment. I had the darndest time getting that stamp to work right for me twice! I gave up, and went to ribbon instead. No stamping mistakes, only opportunities!
