How Does Your Garden Grow – June CC2C

CASEing Coast to Coast is traveling from West with Karen Hallam in CA to East where I am in here PA.  Karen came up with a super fun and seasonal theme:  How Does Your Garden Grow?  Here’s Karen’s beautiful card…

It’s definitely planting season here in Southeastern PA and I live in the Nursery Capital of the State.  There’s actually a sign that says so right off the exit of a major highway, so it must be so!  It’s so much fun to visit all the Amish Nurseries in my immediate area.  First, I do a planning visit to see what’s new and available.  Then I sketch a plan before I go back to purchase.  It usually takes me several trips to gather all my plants but that just makes it more fun.

When planning for my card, I decided to go with some of the essential tools to plant a garden…

I pulled out these fun and realistic looking garden tool dies from The Greetery.  I think The Greetery has some of the most unique dies out there.  Most of the supplies I used here came from my stash.  The sentiment for both the front and back are from Power Poppy’s Sage Advice stamp set and the patterned paper came from a long ago Simon Says Stamps card kit.

I have a friend who is my nursery-hopping partner that I’ll be sending this card to.

Be sure to head West to look at the details of Karen’s card HERE.  Thanks for traveling cross-country with us this month and we look forward to taking you East to West next month.

Take care,
