3rd note card for set

Well, good Tuesday everyone!!! What a crazy day it was here yesterday. I woke up to some dreary skies and high temperatures. My oldest had his second to last t-ball game of the season but by the time the afternoon rolled around I was wondering if that game was going to take place. The winds started sailing through the trees and knocking things around. Then it started to drizzle. I called my husband to see if he had heard anything about the game because one of his co-workers is my son's coach, nothing yet.

It wasn't until a little later that I get a call from my husband. I looked out the window and saw the rain coming down and just knew that they had cancelled the game. I went to tell my son. I told him since it was raining outside his game was cancelled. he looked straight at me, put his arms out and said, "I know". How did he know? He is just too cute and cracks me up everyday.

Well, 4ish rolled around and the winds calmed down to a light breeze and the rain had stopped. His game wouldn't have started until 5pm. His game was basically cancelled for no reason. Yeah, the field would have been wet and slippery but what 5 year olds would not want to get dirty? I know both of my boys would have thought that to be the highlight of their day.

So, last night I sat down to finish a name plate I had started for my newest nephew. I took out the rub-on letters I had bought specifically for it and then realized that the package may only contain one of each letter, his name has 2 "L's" in it. Yep, sure enough, only one "L". So now what?

Well, I had started making note cards a while back to make a set for something, maybe sell, I have no idea. Only two cards isn't going to do it so I set out to make another. I ended up using a different color than aqua mist because I wanted to use only scraps. This is the card I came up with. I was hoping for more of a garden look to it but I am pleasantly happy with the finished product. This is another 3X3 card.
