Ballerina Bear - OSAAT #210

Hi and welcome to my blog again.  It has been quite a week at the office, so nice to have a weekend to relax a bit.  Relax????  Spent 3 1/2 hours out weeding the flower beds and putting in a few more plants getting ready for the yard man to come and put mulch around everything. I'll share some photos when it's all finished.  I'm using perennials so I hope this is the last time I have to do this.  ;)

 It's Sunday and time for another challenge from One Stitch at a Time. Here's my card.
