New Trees, A Rock, and A Card! :)

Happy SUNNY Monday.. we have had such BEAUTIFUL weather for a week now.. they SAY it is gonna last a few more days! I hope THEY are right! :)

We had a GREAT went to darn fast I tell ya!!!

Wanted to share a couple photos of our new trees.. and Dwayne "the rock" Johnson! (LOL!!!)

Steve has been researching trees for awhile now.. and knew what he wanted for 2 of them.... here they are...

For the other one he said what do you think? Um this one.. it is so PURTY.. so he got it.. no info on it or anything .. just that I liked it.. ahhhh what a guy!! (He later read it can get up to 75 feet... EEK! hee hee! :) and in the photo you can see Dwayne "THE ROCK" Johnson! HA HA!! Steve found it buried when he was digging the tree holes.. he washed it.. Yeah he is like that! :) and said he was keeping it.. and naming it.... ok fine.. so he says I like The Rock ... So I said hey we can call it Dwayne for short as in the actor/former wrestler Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.. Steve liked it so well ~ that is its full name!! YES we are a bit SILLY here! HA HA!!!

So cant WAIT for them to fill out a bit more... they look so nice in our yard!!!

I also have a card share for ya! the one I forgot the other day! :)
LOVING using Kraft paper with the white on it!!! and cant stop using yellow!!!!

I have ONE more thing for ya.. then I will get my stuff done before my friend arrives for lunch!

On the 1st of every month there is a senior DT challenge from PTI... you have to peek at THIS.... I LOVE everything Nicole and the team shared.. all links are on her page.. and she shares some GREAT flower links too.. I had to share it.. I also had to order the book she linked.. I so want to learn to crochet flowers.. my mom said she would help me! I figure if all else fails.. I can use the book for paper inspiration too! :)

Ok that is all I got for ya.. cleaning duties are calling...
Have a GREAT day ~ THANKS for stopping by!


  1. Cute card, I love kraft yellow and white!

  2. I'm SO jealous of your trees! I've asked for one for my birthday.. we'll see if I get it. We live in a new subdivision and have one teeny little tree in our front yard. We need more!! LOL

    I love your card! My birthday is coming up, feel free to ship it on over to Indiana. tee hee hee (just kidding)

  3. Love that huge flower! Yumtastic!

  4. Love the trees! They are going to be so beautiful, cool, and shady when they fill out! Poor little Dwayne had to live in the backyard... isn't he house broken? LOL!

    Love the card! I've had my eye on some PTI Kraft cardstock... and the clear cardstock... oh, and some more stamps... BETH! You are terrible for my checkbook! LOL!

  5. Great looking rock Beth!
    The trees are pretty too :)
    LOVE the card.


  6. Very pretty, I love the daisy!

  7. Your card is so pretty, Bethie! I love the colors, large flower, and the white polka dots on the kraft cardstock. I've been wanting to learn to crochet more, too. I did create a few flowers a couple months back, but that was the last time I touched them. Just not enough hours in the day! I can't wait to see yours!

  8. Cute cards Beth and kraft and white are one of my fav combos! Good luck with the crocheting. It's actually easier for me than knitting!

  9. Beautiful card, Beth. I love how you use the Kraft!!

    And i'm so LOLing at Joni's comment about the rock not being potty trained!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The trees looks great!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT day!!
Happy Holidays!!!
