Today I wanted to make a card earth day themed. The one I wanted to make I could not, thanks to my cricut. So the next plan was make a card that I could give and they could get somthing earth friendly. So got to thinking how about a flower themed card and I will add a package of flower seeds. So that is what I did today. Will add a pack above the area where it says "planted". Take a photo once I complete it and repost. Now that is about all I got done...lol And had so much more to do. I normally like to plant flowers and a garden on earth day. I will say I got one planted...lol A tomato plant. I had bought some herbs to plant cause well I have never planted any so thought try something new. I was running low on soil so thought okay I will stop here and run to town, plus we needed a new garden hose anyway. So we leave and just about in town where we needed to go and the truck just dies right in the middle of busy rush hour traffic. He got the truck over some but we ended up getting stuck at the turn lane at the light. He is trying to restart it and nothing. And never a cop when you need one. And people will see the flashers on and still will honk. So we call someone to come least help us out of the road so we can free up the turn lane...lol And soon as we hung up with them we called the insurance towing. All I have to say is Farmers Help point is awesome. Tow truck was there in no time and had to pay nothing cause they at help point called for us and made sure they got the lowest rate. But now we have to find out whats wrong with the truck I am dreading that part. Well that was our earth day not so much fun. Hope the card will give someone an ideas, always like to share ideas.

A few months ago I was at a store and they had these inks on sale. The thing I loved was it was many colors and they were all in a container and stacked. The inks work great has wonderful coverage and works well with clear mount stamps. I really do like the ink now the down fall....lol The stacking part which allows it to not take up alot of space has caused so many problems. I have to use tape when I am not using them they pop open so easy. And could dry out, and if you pick them up they will just pop open. Cant tell you how many times I have had them fall apart and fall on the carpet, Yep carpet! And every time I would say I swear I hate these inks, the truth is don't hate them cause I find I use them alot but just hate the container. So will I buy Martha Stewart stamping ink again? Yes cause its really good ink. However will not buy them when they are in containers like this. Maybe Martha will work on this issue for later products lines I hope cause sure do like the concept.
