Hi everyone. Hope your week is going well.
One thing I am going to share today is a tag for Sandie's Sport challenge at Tag Tuesday.
I have a couple of sets of sport stamps. I've had them for a long time, and it was fun to take them out and play with them again. I did have to find them first, because I put them in one of my stamp bins, but since it had been so long since I had them out, I couldn't remember which one they were in.
I went with a baseball theme for this tag, since it is baseball season here in the US and Canada. And it is baseball season elsewhere in the world where it is played also. I know it is huge in Japan and parts of the Caribbean. Here in New England, it is the sport that always means the start of spring and hopefully nice weather, even if early in the season it isn't always so spring like for many northern teams.
I inked my background and then stamped the lucky pennant in red. The bats, the ball and the player are stamped and fussy cut. Then I stamped on the quote and the #1 fan image. The go team phrase is stamped on acetate and colored with a red paint pen. Then I attached it. Finally I added some blue metallic paper stars to finish my tag.
Earlier this week I also went back to visit Bedrock Gardens. I took you there last fall a couple of times when I first discovered it. This season my walking friend and I decided to get season passes so we could walk there instead of the beach. They are a non-profit place, so by joining (which was reasonable at $35 compared to a $15 parking fee at the beach each time during the summer season), we are helping them continue also.
I am curious to see how the gardens change over the weeks from now until early October when they close.
Here's a few of photos. I'll show you more this weekend.
I was really curious about the shade area since I have a small strip of shaded land I am trying to turn into a garden myself.
This photo below is really fascinating to me. These are some Japanese maple leaves starting to open up.
I love their spindly shape.
As I bending down to take a photo, I noticed this guy hiding behind some plants He was quite a surprise.
Hope you enjoyed these few views.
