More Greenhouse Garden

Well hello there! I hope you are having a terrific day. Any day I get to do some stamping is a terrific day in my book! In early August the family spent a night up at the FIL's 'cabin'. Would have loved to do two nights, but no internet here and besides, I had an early morning doctor's appointment that would make staying a second night rather difficult. Maybe next time. Anyway, while my DH and youngest DD were out on the deck using her telescope, I made four cards which I've been sharing with you over the past few weeks. Today's card is the fifth one I made after we had a nice breakfast at Belgian Waffle Works, which overlooks Lake Arrowhead. It started out as a CASE of one of Wendy Weixler's cards (one from 2008, but now I can't find the post, wouldn't ya know it), but I just didn't like the focal point being oriented like a diamond as I started to put mine together, so it ended up as a square. I'm kinda like that anyway in my card making and scrapbooking, and I like the way it turned out. The 'So' in So Glad We're Friends didn't quite fit when I stamped onto the aluminum tag, but the ribbon was already on the card and it covered the 'So' and still is a nice sentiment.
