MFT Sketch Challenge

Hello. Today I decided to play the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers for the very first time. I've been wanting to participate for awhile, but with working full time and all my design team commitments, I just never found the time. But I really liked this sketch, so this time I played along. I love MFT images, and own a lot of them, but unfortunately, most of them have never seen ink. I keep buying them because I'm so drawn to them, but then I never have the time to use them. 'Birthday Flopsey' is one of those images that I've never used, and since I'm always in need of more birthday cards, I decided to finally ink him up. I stamped the image 3 times and popped the head and cake up on dimensionals. The main image panel is also up on dimensionals. There are Stickles on the candle flame. The paper is 'The Celebration Stack' by DCWV. Here is a close up for you:
Well I FINALLY got outside today for the first time this Spring. It was actually quite discouraging seeing the amount of work that needed to be done in the garden, and all the weeds, and wondering how I'm ever going to accomplish it all. I worked steady for about 5 hours pulling weeds, chopping old foliage down, and carrying lots and lots of Stick's to throw into the woods. I didn't accomplish much, for my yard is about an acre of flower gardens, but I did what I could before my tired old body said 'Enough for today'. It's suppose to rain tomorrow, so I probably won't be able to get outside again till Monday after work. It's really hard getting up at 4:00 a.m., working all day, and then coming home and working in the garden, but I'm going to have to make myself do it or I'll never catch up and get everything done. Willpower and discipline. That's what I need right now. Unless I get rich enough to hire a gardener. LOL!

Have a good day! Amy
