Hello My Crafty Friends,
Warm weather has finally arrived here in Maine and it sure feels great. I have been getting all my pots, window boxes, bicycle, wagon washtubs etc filled with lots of annuals now to keep everything watered.
The Forget Me Nots are in bloom and how pretty they are here in Maine the spring flowers are really beautiful. Today my card has the Forget Me Nots along with the Pom Pom Dahlia and the Ostrich Fern. The Ostrich Fern,which are now starting to unfurl, are a spring time treat around here. When it first comes up and is still tightly coiled they are “Fiddleheads”. Many people start harvesting them and selling them roadside people steam them are said to be quite tasty and loved by many (not me). I don’t mind harvesting if the black flies are not too bad.
My card is a 5″ X 7″ A dot embossing folder was on front.
Beccka Feeken’s die set Nobel Chatelaine Etched was used to cut decorative pieces a solid green for backing and white overlay adhered together. Clear dimensional tape was used to attach to card front.
