Bridal Shower Favor and Thank You Cards--And the Garden

Hello Dreamers!
The bridal shower was Sunday.  Everything turned out great and we all had a nice time.  I thought I would show you the favors I made.  I also made 35 thank you cards for the bride to send out to the guests.

Anita, my brother's girlfriend and I spent all day Friday making the cake pops.  We wrapped them in the cello bags tied with ribbon.  I added a die cut tag stamped with an umbrella and "thank you".  Each guest received one as they were leaving.

I made the Thank you cards to coordinate with the favors.  

*************A few fun Challenges for my Bridal Shower Favor and Thank You cards:
Sentimental Sundays: anything goes
ABC: M is for monochromatic
Card and Scrap: clean and simple
Sparkles forum: for a special lady or mom
All Sorts: one layer card
Crafting from the Heart: anything goes
Crafting Desert Divas: use your favorite color---I used primary red.
Stamp and Create: thank you

I was out in the garden with the camera the other day....... I could not resist capturing a few things!!  The peonies don't last very long, but they are so beautiful.  

 Hardy Geraniums

New planter boxes filled with veggies




Just love how the garden changes every day!  The vegetable plants are starting to take off, the lettuces are sprouted and growing, and the lilies will be blooming soon.    I will share more photos throughout summer.
I hope you are having a great Monday!  See you next time.  Love ya.
