The Best Kind of Plant to Have!!!

by Myrna Irwin

I did not get the green thumb genes from my mother. Water??? What’s that? I forget I even have them. Outdoors, forget it!!! When you have dew-points in the 80’s and humidity in the 70’s forget me going outside! Heat indexes in the 90’s to 100’s. Nope, not my kind of weather. It’s not fit for man or beast out there. On to the card. I just love the hAnglar stamps. For some reason they just speak to me.

Click on the picture to enlarge it.

As I said this is the best plant for me to have. I can’t kill it!! This is a house-warming card for a friend who just moved into her brand new home! Yes, Linda this is your card and there is NO ORANGE in it! If you look close there is some in the paper. I did not bring it out. I even didn’t make the pot a clay pot. lol! If you look at the speck of green in the upper left corner that is the green I matched. If you look on the lower right area that’s the pinks I matched. Get ready for this I even LIKE the PINK!!!! Quick, take my temperature! This is one of those cards I had all sorts of ideas before I started and didn’t use one of them! I was freaked with all that area of dirt, moss so I was going to put Flower Soft on it. After I got done I liked how it turned out with the Copics so left it the way it was.

Linda I still hope to be able to come to your House Warming Party but just in case I wanted to get your reaction to the card in case I’m not there in person. On to the stats for my card.
