Hi everyone! I am really in almost a state of shock that it’s Thursday already. Still feels like the week is just getting started, and here it is almost the weekend already. Not that I’m complaining about that, mind you. Just where on earth does the time go?
My mom has been here visiting with us the last couple of weeks, and that has kept us on a busy schedule. Took her to the nursery last weekend where we picked out some perennials for my back yard. They are only one gallon plants, so I figured it wouldn’t be that difficult a task to get them planted. We picked out 10 before we decided that was enough for now. Thank goodness we stopped, because it feels like we’ll never get these plants in the ground. Each hole is it’s own little battle fought against the compacted clay “soil” of North Carolina. We now have 8 of the plants in, after working two very full days on them. I do believe that all my once-held desire to garden has completely and permanently disappeared! 😉
But on to better news, I do have some Webster’s Pages things to share today. The first is the scoop on some live chats that Webster’s will be holding on their community blog site, inspireME, on April 28th. I’m excited to say that this time, we will be holding two separate chats during the day in hopes that more of our international friends can join us. One at 9 am and one at 9 pm, both Eastern Standard time. You can google the time zones for your area to see exactly when they would match up for you. We will be previewing the new mid-season release titled Sweet as Cherry Pie, announcing the winner of our quarterly banner drawing, giving away some free prizes, debuting the new Webster’s Facebook group, and just hanging out. I hope you all can join us for the fun!
I also have a card to show using both of the new Webster’s CHA lines, Magical Wishes and A Sweet Life. It’s always a sad occasion when you need a sympathy card, but the beautiful and classical lines were perfect for what I was hoping to create.
The paper is a mixture of both lines. I really like the blend of the bold and soft colors and patterns. The garden gate, raspberry branch and yellow flower were cut directly from the papers, and the gorgeous butterfly is from the new vellum journaling cards. Both the trims are from Webster’s new collection, as well. I used one of my older Stampin’Up stamps for the sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope Spring is shining down on all of you!
