Beautiful card and beautiful flower garden too Jaydee!

A beautiful calming card - lovely! Our weather is really wonky here too, it has been getting really cold at night - brrrr.


Such a peaceful scene you've created...perfect for Nance's challenge!

Joanne James

I love your tranquil scene Jaydee, beautifully framed with your stitched die (I can't ever get enough of those!) Love hearing about your butterflies too - as one of our summer holiday activities, the children are currently feeding some larvae that in 3-5 weeks should become painted lady butterflies. I must remember to share with you a picture on hatching!


Such a relaxing outdoor scene...love your coloring too. And your photos are amazing too..so pretty!

Have a great day:)

Jaydee, what a beautiful and peaceful CAS card and fun pics of your garden. Always enjoy stopping by your blog :)

Jaydee, this is so lovely! I wish I could jump in that little boat and float down the river. So serene and perfect for a hot summer day! Love the way the stitching makes your oval pop off the white background! Your flower garden is so lovely! I always enjoy your pictures of your home! Hope you are having a great week! XX


Thanks, Sandy :-) You know, I cannot remember which catalog this was in - I bought it for the bird image in the set, but think I have used the canoe one more. I think it was an easy set to overlook, but it is beautifully illustrated. As for the knees.... totally understand that - it's another reason we used native plants... they are much easier to care for and the rocks help with the weeds :-)


Jaydee I am in love with this serene little scene! I must have missed this stamp set in the SU catalog, or maybe your CAS use of it made it shine in a new way. What a perfect card for male or female. Oh, and ps your garden looks amazing. Mine is a little neglected this year, my knees are not cooperating :(


Thanks, Julia :-) yes... the wildflower garden is really coming into its own this year. We had to supplement with a few plants to fill in some gaps, but absolutely worth our while :-)

Julia Aston

what a lovely tranquil summer scene! and your gardens are beautiful!


Thanks, Kelly :-) So glad you like the garden, too. I need to take a leaf out of your book and put a hummer feeder up at the front. Now I need to go order another feeder :-) I agree with you about sitting on the patio and watching nature go about her business. Have a fabulous week, too


Thanks, Nance. I love the image, too and am still obsessed with the stitched dies, they really do frame things beautifully. hugs, Jaydee

Just beautiful Jaydee! I love your stamp set too, so serene. Perfect coloring and the canoe in red just steals the show against the blue water.

I love your flower garden! I might need to see if Hyssop will grow in our area, that's new to me. I sure love having flowers that attract our pollinators too!

I just bought another hummingbird feeder in the style you recommended a long time back. I have 3 now and placed the new one by itself in the front yard. It didn't take but a few hours to see several of them trying to gain it as their own! It's always a wonderful time of the year to sit on the patio after work and watch the busy bees, butterflies, and hummers!! Hope you have a lovely week!

Nance Leedy

Fabulous card, Jaydee. Makes me want to climb aboard the pretty canoe and take it for a spin. Beautiful coloring and I love how your image pops against all the white space. The stitched edge is the perfect contrast between the two white layers. Just lovely, my friend! As is, your beautiful wildflower garden!
