A New Post for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps

 Happy Wednesday!! I have been MIA as of late due to exhaustion from my job. I have 19 more days of school until we break for summer but who is counting!!! This has been a long year and I will be happy to see it end. I have been in school since August and I do not have much patience left in me to prod the students to complete their assignments. They are over this year too. 

Today I am over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog with a simple birthday card. Use the link to see how I created my card. Below is a sneak peek:

I received a new free stamp set from Altenew today. I was so excited as my day was a little rough.

It is always fun to get a little envelope filled with something in the mail!!! I am hoping that I can use this set tonight to create a card.

On another note, I was able to go to the nursery this past weekend and got a bunch of different annuls and a couple perennials to plant in my gardens. 

I spent Mother's Day afternoon planting them in various places. I have to admit that I do not have a green thumb but I try!! I did not take any after photos as I didn't use gloves and my hands were a MESS. Am I the only one who likes the feel of getting dirt on their hands from gardening?

I still have to plant my veggies but need to figure out a plan because my dogs LOVE to dig in my veggie garden. 

Well, that is all from me today. Perhaps I will post again later this week as I have been making cards but just not posting on my blog. Do not forget to hop on over to my post on the CAS-ual Fridays Blog. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!

It's so refreshing to see an uncoloured background, Nora - it gives such an elegant look, and I love the way you arranged the little banners!
I can see why you are so tired after this particular year in school. I think you deserve a medal! Let's hope the remaining 19 days pass quickly and you will then have some more time to spend in the garden and craft room.
Take care.

Yeah, I think the kids are over school! Even Sweet P's online Kindergarten class is getting a bit antsy. Hang in there, summer is almost here! Pretty card!

Awesome card! Love the mix of cheerfulness and elegance that a great black and white floral design like that delivers.

Congrats on your new set of Alte & New stamps! What a stunner "Flower Pop" is. Have a blast creating with it!
