Hello, Friend

Hi friends! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. We went to a small town about an hour away tonight for their annual Schmeckfest (i.e., a German food free-for-all). Yummy!! They sell food too, so I was able to buy 3 large bags of my beloved pfeffernusse cookies (hey, they freeze...gotta think ahead).

Anyhoo, afterward I was able to finish up a card for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. Here's a pic of the trigger:

I went round and round about the card and actually made two cards (the first one was so lame that I won't even post it). But, I finally came up with this card:

I like that the card has the same country feel as the trigger. The cute watering can card base is from Waltzingmouse Stamps, the orange sun rays are from Practicing Creativity Design, and the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn. Here's a close-up of the sentiment:

The sentiment is stamped on light blue patterned grid paper from Echo Park, which is actually different than the background...I guess I like that color and pattern! I inked up the edges of the watering can to give it a little more weathered look. Here's a picture of the flowers:

Thanks for looking and thanks for the comments!
