A Day Painting and Planting

I spent the morning finishing up some little
cards, I've been painting.
I think it is always nice to make your cards. 
They just seem more special.
Always good to have on hand too.
These were done with watercolor,
copic marker, permanent pens.
Then I spent the afternoon planting the first
raised vegetable bed.  We have had to move 
our raised beds closer to the house this year
as the Elk have destroyed our fencing down below.
This has been no easy feat as each bed is 14 feet by 4 feet.
Had to break them down and haul (that would be carry) them
up by the house and then haul all the good soil up. (we used
the tractor for that part, thank heaven). So I am heading up 
for a nice long hot bubble bath.
Tomorrow we move the next one. :-(

Sounds like you have been having a busy time. That is a lot of garden to be moving. What beautiful cards you have created. Love your art work. The scalloped edges finish each of those lovely bouquets.

Your cards are lovely and definitely much more special than store bought mass produced cards. May you have a bounty of delicious vegetables in a very short time.
