You're Otter This World! OSAAT #236

Hi friends!  Happy Sunday. It is here since we've had some nice sunshine weather the last few days. I was actually able to go to the Nursery yesterday and pick out a bunch of Perennial plants for my gardens, most to attract butterflies and hummingbirds. I've had some monarch caterpillars on some of my plants over the last 2 weeks, but I haven't seen any of them go full cycle and become a butterfly. One of these days I'll get things set up so I can protect them and give them a safe place to hang their chrysalis and become a Monarch.

Time for Spring cleaning too - clean out the closet of Winter clothes and get the Summer ones put in. As I was working on the laundry, my dryer quit putting out heat to actually dry the clothes.  Ugh!  Hopefully I'll be able to get it fixed soon.

Well, Sunday means it's time for another challenge over at One Stitch at a Time and our theme for this fortnight challenge is Anything Goes for a Special Lady.  It's up to you to decide who that is - could be a mom, grandmother, sister, daughter, etc. My card did not turn out the way that I had all set out in my mind at first, but I am pleased with how it finished up.
