A Little Something

Monday, August 1, 2016

 My daughter got us started on succulents!  She made a mini succulent garden for her dorm and then made two more for my husband on Father's Day.  I must say, these are my kind of plants because they don't need to be watered all the time!   The only green I have on my thumb is ink!  Now I'm thinking of putting larger ones on our patio...maybe they'll live since I've managed to destory any other kinds of flowers or plants out there!

 

 For my card, I used a brick embossing folder from Taylored Expressions (just love this one!) and stamps/dies from Simon Says Stamp Succulent Garden.  I used cork to die cut the cups :)

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
