A perfect day!

 What a perfect day. The weather is finally starting to show signs of spring. It was nice enough outside today that my DH and I were able to clean up the gardens- without coats I might add. I couldn't believe the leaves that we raked out  of the beds after what we had done in the fall. Where do they all come from over the winter.  He cooked T-bone steaks and corn on the cob on the grill for dinner and I found a cheddar bay biscuit mix that Red Lobster makes and it's the real deal.  A perfect end to a perfect day.

I picked up a new set of Spellbinders on Friday. This one is Valiant Honor. I cut the frame of the card using the largest die. The white panel is Spellbinders Gold Label Four and the Pear Pizazz green panel is from the Opulent Ovals die set. The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs SU set and I used another die from the Valiant Honor Spellbinders set. The flowers are Prima and the the leaves are from the MS Frond punch and McGill Fern punch.

I need some graduation cards in a few months and I figured there was no time like the present. Yesterday I finished all of them and now I just have to remember where I will put them until then. The next few months will be busy with getting the flower beds planted and mulch spread. Every other year we get a truck load of mulch delivered and then I just fill in as needed in the off year with a few bags. And that is another one of life's mysteries- where does all that mulch go?
I am looking forward to my annual Florida trip in a few weeks. Can't wait to lay in the sun and spend some time with my stamping buddy. She is still doing some decorating of their new place so more than likely we will be having some fun shopping. One of my other favorite hobbies is home interior decorating and I can only keep changing things in my own home every so often. It will be fun to help Carol's with hers. I think I will end this perfect day with a good book.
~have fun and enjoy!
