A Green Thumb

I do not have a green thumb! I love this time of the year when all of the flowers are blooming but I like looking at other people's flowers as I just can't seem to keep mine alive.  I am fortunate that the house we live in now, a previous resident took the time to plan out the landscaping so that there is something pretty blooming most of the months of the year (and I don't have to remember to water them!).  I love being surprised at what pops up as each season changes!


This is a card I made a few months ago from PTI's "Green Thumb" set.  It is about as close as I'll get to planting my own blooming flowers! :)  It is another very simple card but I like it because it is simple. 

Do you have a green thumb?  What did you plant this year?  Do you plant a garden or just flowers?

Thank you for visiting my blog today!  I appreciate each and every one of you!


Supplies
PTI Green Thumb, Kraft, Ivory, Scarlet Cardstock, L'amore Red & Burnt Umber Ink, PTI Aqua Mist ink, EK Success Border Punch

  1. Beautiful card. I love the simplicity too. I can't seem to keep plants alive either. I just visit my mother-in-law's beautiful garden when I need a fix!

  8. Love how you placed the flowers in the watering can. I love to garden so I am always buying floral stamp sets. I have had success with any flower that is hardy. Right now I have a patch of very fragrant hyacinths.

  9. Very pretty card! I really like this color combo. I love digging around in my garden, though I tend to buy everything that looks pretty with no regard to how it will look in my landscape! Still, like you I enjoy watching new things appear as the seasons change.

  17. Very Pretty Jen. I like the aqua and red together with kraft. Lucky for you the previous owners did all the work, right? *smile*
    Both my DH and I are gardeners at haeart, and he's also a landscaper, so we're set with multiple flower, herb, and vegetable beds, plus the orchard we're working on!
