WOYWW 206 - Happy Mail

Hard to believe it is WOYWW 206! It has been a few weeks since I have played along.
We have been busy in our garden so my blogging and time to create has been sadly curtailed...

I had planned that sometime in April I would do a post showcasing all the cards I received in March (my Birthday month) . Somehow that fell by the wayside in the ongoing saga of gardening exhaustion......

The work in the garden is finally finished...well as finished as it can be till Fall. The plants have just grown too large to risk moving  and dividing them up right now.

So, with all my newly found spare time, I have set up my work desk with all the Happy Mail I received in March/April. You only get the generic "work desk" shot. This is WOYWW after all!!!  Tomorrow I will have another post that showcases each individual card and a link to who made it!!!

If the weather holds, you may even get a couple of pictures of the new and improved garden! DH did all the heavy digging, lifting, and dragging. He was a real trooper as he really doesn't like to garden and has done a great job on it.

And just to whet your photo appetite further, here is a bit of a close up...the little pile of stuff to the right of the photos are all the precious supplies I have dragged out to make some Mermaid cards. Images, lace, netting, shells, DP, and a few seaweed and shell stamps...everything is stacked there waiting for my mojo to
kick into mermaid gear!
  Hope you have enjoyed seeing just what I've been up to...if you want to see more desks and creativity then hop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground where you can join in the fun visiting all the other desks too!

  8. OH SO HAPPY we do not have enough soil for a garden and if we wanted to plant would have to build a bed. then the deer would eat everything. Strange how weeds remain uneaten. Great cards.
