Saucy Fairy - OSAAT #260

Hi my friends and Happy Sunday.  It's a little gloomy here with the rainy weather, but I'm not complaining. We always need the rain for the grass, flowers, and trees. My lawn guy put some sod down a week ago, so I'm still wanting it to rain on it so it will give it a good start. I did some repotting today, so those pots could use a little rain on them too.  I've been waiting until I'm actually finished with the yard and flower beds so I can do a blog post about my garden and butterflies. That will come. Just to let you know also that my arm is healing up nicely so the doctor tells me. It's still pretty sore when I try to do somethings, so I try not to do those things. It also wears me out! I'm so tired by the end of the day that I just fall into bed.

Anyway, for now I get to showcase my card that I did for One Stitch at a Time.  Anything Goes with Wings!

  10. Maggie, your card is beautiful! I love how you placed the flowers - you always do that so well!

  11. I can imagine how tiring it is to try to carry on with your hurt arm. I'm glad you're able to get around and do a few things, though. I'll be ready for rain later this week when it's supposed to be back. April showers bring May flowers! Such a pretty fairy with her sparkly wings, and love that bit of lace and the lovely flower arrangement. You always do such a nice job with those. I have so many flowers and hardly use them. I should concentrate on that a little.
