Watering Can with Love

Happy Thursday my friends!  I am on a roll here with getting all these cards posted.  I sure have been a busy girl. Can't believe it with everything that has been going on this week.  And to top it all off, I am having Christmas dinner at my house on Saturday with my daughter and her family. Oh, yes! We did Christmas dinner at her house on Christmas day, but I poor son-in-law was recovering from having hernia surgery and he was only allowed clear broth/liquids so he didn't get to enjoy any of the yummy food we had, so we are having the dinner all over again, only at my house this time. I did tell them that there would be NO tree and NO gifts!  HAHAHA!

Today's card is for the Freebie/Progressive Challenge over at The Outlawz. If you sign up, every month they will send you a free digital image to use that month to make your project. If for some reason you don't get your project done and uploaded to the challenge, the following month you have to buy the image from the sponsor's store to get back in the game. For some reason I always seem to be posting my card at the last of the month. I kept it pretty simple, but I'm happy with the way it turned out.

Materials Used:
  •  Image - Sandi Hugett - Watering Can
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Going Gray
