I really meant to go for a summer feel to the card and by the time I was done I think it looks like it would be good for Autumn. This is one of those cards that what was on my mind to do did not turn out at all how I had planned. It had a mind of it's own, LOL!
I tried using this set once before it has two step stamping and I used different inks with it and they didn't work as well, not sure if I was too happy with my color choices here but it did seem to get better coverage using the chalk inks.
I will have to say I like the enamel accents they give me the nice rounded dots :)

We went over to Missouri to a few parks the past two days, oh my the first day it was in the mid 90's and we went hiking again on some trails and by the time we got back to the car you would have thought I had just gotten out of the shower, I so hate that feeling, but it was pretty and we had fun.
The next day we had a bit of soft sprinkles on our walk to these springs, but once again it was so humid that we got back soaked again between the sprinkles and the himidity. I haven't had a chance to look at the pictures yet but I will share if any of them turned out :)
I mentioned a while back that we bought this new system to plants some carrots to have on the deck and I thought I would share how they are coming along. We planted them right from seeds directly into the pot, it came with a black plastic sheet and big rubber band that goes over it so when you water it the moisture stays inside and you just water from that black tube that is in the lower right corner in the picture, well hubby didn't like that at all so he took it off and we water the tube and when it rains it gets it from the top also, it seems to be working well even though we don't have the black plastic on top.
Please excuse the deck, yes it needs to be painted again, I didn't get to it before it has been so HOT! I like this planter because it is on rollers so you can put it anywhere on the deck you like.
Here is a visitor we had the other day, he is getting a tad to close to the carrots for my comfort, I have a feeling we may come out and this may be empty.
Thanks so much for stopping by today :) Have a wonderful weekend!!
