Plant Kindness...

Plant kindness, grow love...words to live by, right? I used The Stamps Of Life set, moremums2love for this card.  I went with a more modern/contemporary look on this one.  I used Stephanie's ink in Licorice and Guava.  I matted the horizontal and vertical panels in black and added some bling to my mum centers.  I really like this layout and plan to revisit it again.

No big plans this weekend other than baseball.  I really dislike baseball. I have tried and tried to like it, but I still think it is quite possibly the most boring sport on the face of the earth.  I feel like I am lulled into a trance, and then when something exciting happens-I miss it.  Of course, I put on my happy face for my oldest, but sometimes I think he doesn't like it very much either. LOL!  He plays three sports right now, and I think as he gets older, baseball will be the one he drops.  I will say there is nothing cuter than little boys in baseball uniforms and hats! Makes me smile. :)
I think we may be on the "you know what" list with the coach.  They were supposed to have a game that started at 6:30 last night that was about 40 minutes away.  My son started his Ohio Achievement test today, and I felt like that was way too late to be out on a school night, especially with OAA's the next day, so we kept Will home.  By the time we would have gotten home, and he showered it would have been 10:30!  I think school ALWAYS comes before extracurricular activities.  I know a lot of the other mom's were upset about the game being scheduled at that time before the tests, but I think I am the only one who put my foot down.  I hope my guy doesn't pay the price for it.  Okay...enough griping about baseball!  I just had to get that off my chest. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful Card, LOL I totally agree with you about Baseball I think the only time I like it is when we are at the actual stadium eating Nachos and Hotdog, LOL.

Love that gorgeous splash of pink.

Good Mom for looking out for your son's best interest. The tests are brutal for my students who don't get a good night's sleep the night before.
