Live, Laugh, Love

Hello and Happy Tuesday !

Today is a new day and a new blog hop.

The designers of The Twinery are joining with the
uber-talented ladies of 

for an inspiring blog hop.

Hopefully you came by way of my teammate
Dorangela's Blog

If not, I'd love to invite you back to the beginning at
to get started there.

The Twinery is giving away our beautiful baker's twine!
{ more on that below }

I absolutely love this set of stamps from Skipping Stones Design.
It's called 'Dandelion Dreams'
Have you ever noticed just how beautiful weeds can be when you
let them grow and flower ?  We live just on the edge of the city
and there's a field just across the road.  I am amazed at
the beauty each summer as the weeds grow and create wonderful color.

For this card, I placed all the colorful stems in a metal wheelbarrow
I've had in my stash for quite some time.  It is part of a garden-themed
set I picked up at a dollar store and had yet to use.
I outlined the wheelbarrow with Cappuccino baker's twine
and created a wheel using our Charcoal twine, both from
The Twinery.

Of course, no garden is complete without a few butterflies and the tiny
dandelion parachutes from the seed head that fly everywhere.

I am so glad you stopped by today and hope you will continue on
with the blog hop.  The Twinery is giving away

A Colorful Bunch Sampler Pack

Just make sure you stop by each blog on the hop
and leave a little love in the comments before you go.
There is so much wonderful inspiration along the way and I
know you'll enjoy all the creativity!

Have a great day & enjoy the hop !
