Birthday!

Hello everyone!!! We have been very busy working on our landscaping over the past few days. In fact I haven't had much papercraft recently but was able to prepare some cards last week that I have been posting more recently. Here is a super fun birthday card. This is the type of card I would give someone without the envelope.




Cardstock:Stamper's Select White by PTI
Patterned Paper: October Afternoon
Accents: DieCut, Stickers from October Afternoon
Tools: Fiskars punch
Size: 4.25x5.5


And for those of you who enjoy landscaping (as you may recall from my previous posts ONE and TWO we have a BIG job)...here are some photos from our day...



We had some "machine" help digging our trenches as our soil is mainly clay.



We had to hand dig much of the side of our house because of hydro lines and gas lines. It was long and tedious with a pick and shovel.



The wall rock arrive!



The 3/4 inch rock arrives (for our drainage)



We shoveled bucket after bucket of the 3/4 rock and dumped them one by one over the "BIG O" pipe and drainage pipe. It was long--and my arms, legs and back are quite sore.



So if you don't see me for a few days it's because I am busy creating a backyard LOL...either that or too sore to type. I'll be sure to post some photos when we finish our rock walls, sprinklers and drainage.
