How does your garden grow?

Did you read the joke Vikki left as a comment on my Merry Friday post?  I laughed all day over this one and actually I'm still laughing!! Thanks a bunch Vikki : ) 

what do you get from sitting on the snow too long? ..... polaroids!!

Hi everyone : ) my garden is a bit tardy because of all the cold weather we have suffered this spring and now my card is a bit tardy too! You see I took inspiration from this week's Freshly Made Sketches but missed the deadline to submit my card to the gallery!

Oh well!! Freshly Made Sketches is a great challenge blog and I encourage you to check them out for their next challenge : )

I was also inspired by the Inspired By Challenge : ) Isn't this photograph lovely!? Tardy or not Spring has finally sprung!! I and I could not be happier : )

The supplies I used are from Papertrey Ink's Petite Places series.  I regret that am unable to link to PTI as I cannot access their site any longer because apparently my computer is too old : (.  I also used a scrap of card stock from my stash but the markings were not preserved so I can't share where it was from. I guess I am just plain outdated all the way around!  Good thing we aren't too old to laugh!! : )

Waiter! Shouted the furious diner.  How dare you serve me this! There is a TWIG in my soup!!  “My apologies, said the waiter, I’ll inform the branch manager. : )

Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy your day!

BIG (((HUGS)))

HaHaHa Would you believe that I have several of these petite sets and have never inked them up? Me bad
The coordination of the green strip behind the church with a green roof provides the magic in this pretty scene.

Such a shame you missed the deadline for the sketch challenge Patti but what great inspiration as the layout is gorgeous. Yes my garden is tardy too but your card is certainly not! Your card is adorable, fresh and absolutely beautiful x Count me in to the outdated bit too LOL x

I missed your friend's joke, and am SO glad you shared it. It's a great one. I told it to my girls and they laughed, too. What a great little feature you've got going on your blog. We can all use a bit of laughter. Thank you! Your card is delightful. That little house is so sweet and the background for it is beautiful. I'm sorry you can't access PTI, but you sure showcased their products wonderfully. Your joke at the end is also terrific. Thanks for sharing! Hugs!
