Thank You so very much

Hi Friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day! I went to the nursery yesterday and bought a 2 cubic bag of potting soil,(BIG bag), some flowers. Went home and trimmed everything, added potting soil to the pots and fertilized, planted flowers. I was on my last pot to add dirt to and was sitting in a plastic chair because it was by the pot, I was scooping out dirt and my chair broke and down I went lol!! Now I could say it was my weight but I just lost 70 pounds, so I think the chair was old and worn down from the sun , but I wish someone had a video on me because it was funny as heck! I wrenched my back but I'm sure it will be O.K.

 
I made this card for Shay at Winnie and Walter. Girls, I'm telling you these ladies are the nicest ! They are WONDERFUL!!
 
 
I watercolored a piece of watercolor paper with some pink's and yellows. Cut different sizes of frames for the base of the card and used "So Tweet" stamp set with the sweetest birds!
 
Have a wonderful week girls! Hugs, Char

This is adorable! Love the pink and yellow background and those cute birdies! I hope your back is okay (and congrats on the 70 lbs - awesome!). Have an awesome week!

Such a cute card, and I'm pretty sure she'll love it! Bright colors, cute images... I do hope that your back is well soon, and that you're able to laugh about your "journey"!

Oh my--lucky Shay! You've made a beautiful & darling card with that set, Char! Sure hope your back is OK--good you can laugh about it! Wowzer--70 pounds is amazing--assuming you wanted to do that! Wishing you lots of beautiful flowers! We love Shasta Lake, but 90 degrees plus is why we can't live in Redding--haha! Boy did that card take the slow route as the one I sent overseas got there before you got yours! Have a great week!

Boo hoo about the chair. Your poor back...that can be painful when you land on your back like this. HOpe you feel better real soon. Love these darling birds. Don't think I've ever ordered directly from W&W, but I love their stamps that I've gotten from other places. YOur watercoloring is wonderful, and those bright frames in different sizes really set off this cheeky trio. Well done. TFS & Hugs
