City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #356 ~ CASE 1

I started City Crafter Challenge Blog 7 years ago, can you imaging? Wow, 7! CCCB is 7 this year.
To celebrate our birthday, we are doing the CCCB tradition birthday challenge CASE ME IF YOU CAN!
This week is a card from me.

 

CASE ME IF YOU CAN!!!!

You can use the sketch, the colors, or pick up any elements and then make a card that is entirely yours, just remember to tell us what inspired your creation.

Of course I have to CASE my own....


 I am doing the same background with a different colors combination this time, and I change the focus point from a scribble flower to a butterfly.




Since it is our birthday celebration, we do offered a prize package this week!


Play along with us if you want to win this, we will pick a winner that link up their project as well as leaving comments at the following blogs.

Garden Notes and a New Card

Surprise! I have a new card this week, LOL!
I know, I haven't been in the craft room much other than my DT duty.


I thought I would link this up with Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge

Products used in this project includes, PapertreyInk, My favorite thing and Creative Time for Me.


and now the garden notes....


back in October when we repaint our patio, the handy man throw out a few pieces of wood from the old patio that cannot be reused, I picked them up and make a little stand for vegetable garden, however, I didn't have much success besides scallions.


I tried growing lemon from seeds, but everytime when it come to this stage....


it dies....
this photo was the first batch, and then the second batch grow a little bigger than the ones in the photo, but die after I transplant them to a bigger pot, maybe I just do not have green thumb, does anyone have tips to share?


probably I should just do the easy stuff and not try to grow vegetable from seeds, like putting this bottom part of the celery after we ate what we want into the soil....


and it just grow like crazy


we cut a few off each time when we need some and it just keep growing.
Well, I would still love to learn how to grow my own vegetable from seeds, please share with me if you have any tips or advice for me, thanks and have a wonderful weekend!
