Muddy Buddies

As you know I have been playing with Vellum I was looking through my supplies and discovered a stack of Grafix Clear-Lay Plastic Film.  I thought why not try to emboss it, works like a charm.  It is a really nice clear plastic film.

I thought since the little girl has an umbrella her cat should be holding one also.

Gardeners Supply Grow Shelter
The wooden garden boxes were already here when we purchased the house but we have such a short growing season in Washington.  A lot of times in September it starts to rain and just ruins my tomato plants.  I was so excited to find this grow shelter it is 4 feet by 4 feet.  It fits on top of the four posts inside the box.  It comes with clamps and screws to keep it is place.  It has large zippered openings on all sides for ventilation.  We let you know how it works this year.


  1. What a sweet image Diane and love the cat holding her brolly!! You should have loads of tomatoes with that cover.
    Thank you for your lovely message on my blog. My neighbour passed away the next day after I posted that one. So my friend lost both parents within a week. So sad.. Hugs, Carol

  2. What a cute card Diane, love that pretty shade of pink and the dotty background. Your grow shelter is perfect!! xx

  3. Hi Diane, yet again, another sweet card. Love how you've embossed the clear plastic with the dots.....makes the dots look like raindrops. Stay safe and well.
    Hugs Jennifer xx.

  4. Lovely shade of pink and great use of the Swiss dots EF, love the cute kitty with the umbrella.
    I will also be interest to know how your new purchase performs. I have sown my tomato seeds but they are only just peeking up. I may have sown them too early.
