I am making little goodie bags of candy for guests at my cousin's fiance's wedding shower that is coming up. I made these tags to go on the bags. I haven't figured out what kind of candy yet, but I'll use a clear plastic bag and then tie the tag on with ribbon. I again used a brush from DesignFruit. I really want to learn how to make such cool brushes myself, but haven't gotten there yet. I used SU! Wild Wasabi and River Rock paper, which just happens to match their wedding invitation colors pretty close.
Here is another background/wallpaper that I made. I used the same quote that I'm using for the wedding shower tags. And same credit to DesignFruit for the photoshop brushes.

Also I got some inspiration to make a background for my computer from Davinie.

I am seriously wishing/wanting to buy a new camera. Right now I have a Kodak V550. It's small and takes good pictures, but I want better pictures. I would still use this one a lot I'm sure since it's so small, it fits in my purse or pocket easy. I've done some research and I think the one I want is the Nikon D40X. I'm curious, what kind of camera do you have and do you like it?

We aren't sure because there weren't any deer tracks. The ground was soft from the rain yesterday, plus I raked it last night to scrape away the small weeds in the pathway.
I also made this cute card this morning. I dyed the flowers yesterday. They are from the SU! Pretties Kit. I dropped a couple drops of Rose Red die and couple drops of water in a plastic sandwich bag. I mushed it all around and set them out on a paper towel to dry. They turned out pretty good I think. Then for the Certainly Celery strip of paper, I used my Crop-A-Dile to emboss the circles. I learned this technique from Kristina. After I saw her technique I then noticed it is also done on the cover of Stampin' Success (SU! Demo Mag).

Two different days when I have checked on my flowers this is what I have found. My poor sunflowers! I wish the deer would find other food. Just down in the field is a bunch of grass, but I guess my sunflowers taste better. I had about 15 or so back there and each time the deer have eaten more and knocked more over. The biggest one was pulled out of the ground, roots showing, so I planted it again and am hoping it will be make it. Last year we didn't have problems with deer, but I didn't have this many sunflowers either.
Here are two 3x3 cards I made. The So Saffron ink shows up a lot lighter than the Certainly Celery. You can see the doodle stamp a lot easier on the Certainly Celery background than the So Saffron. They were fun and easy cards to make.
Sorry, I'm showing a card that has retired stamp sets. I made this also while I was with my parents. My mom has these stamp sets and I hadn't gotten a chance to play with them yet.

What wonerful weeds I have in my backyard! I pulled a bunch of them at the beginning of summer, but I left a couple. They get so big and have pretty little flowers on them.

Below is a picture of the chickens that Dan's mom has. The two that are speckled gray were the chicks we raised. My how they have grown! Go to the April 1st post to see what they looked like when they were little.
