Kaboodle Doodle Challenge - "B" stuff!

This week our challenge over on Kaboodle Doodles has the kaboodlers making projects using embellishments that start with "B" - brads, buttons, bows, bling - you get the idea! They have done a bang up job of it too, so be sure to stop over and check out their creations. Here's mine:

Our sponsor this week is Di's Digis and they gave the team some fun images to work with. I pulled this cutie from my stash and went to town. Card base is Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft)
(SU) and I stamped on it in CC (SU) ink using my unmounted paws wheel (SU). DH so very kindly and skillfully made me some acrylic blocks that fit my unmounted standard and jumbo wheels just perfectly. One of these days I'll put up a little tutorial on how that is accomplished if you all are interested. The image was colored with Copics and cut out using a lace edge nestie square. It's mounted on a square of Daffodil Delight (SU) that I rounded the corners on. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU) and punched and layered on a nestie label.

Okay, now for the first garden pix of the season.

The daffodils succumbed to the cold and I fear that the tulips might have been done in by it as well. We'll see. The allium however are undaunted and growing like crazy!! The hyacinth was just gorgeous, but alas as with most spring bulbs, it didn't hang around very long either. DH has been working in the yard like crazy building frames and mulching and getting everything looking so pretty before he leaves for the boat. I am going to be moving the veggie gardening to the front porch this year in the hope that I can handle it better by myself. DH is the true gardener in the family but I still would like to have a little home grown produce to snack on this summer. We have drip irrigation on the porch and it gets great sun all through the morning so it should be a good place for some tomatoes, lettuce and maybe even some peppers.

I'll have my Sassy Chic Stamp Camp card to share with you later (thanks so much to bff Sabrina for helping me come up with the design) and also a couple more Wax Fruit Company cards. I can't stop playing with Arielle's images - so very much fun to color!

Thanks for visiting!
