OH, I just LOVE saying that!! Especially since it has only been two years since I quit pronouncing it "Pee-oh-nee" and got it right. I would say 'teeny, weeny peony' to remind myself how to say it. Of course, I would advise that if you choose to use my Mnemonics trick, only say it in your head...especially if your husband is around. I'm really ready for Spring. I want my flowers to come out-especially my beloved roses-and allow me to enjoy the 15 or 20 minutes I get before the effing bugs start chewing them up and I choose the nuclear option to get rid of them. When I was young, I loved Junebug season! You could catch them and tie strings around them and they'd fly around above your head. Now, I load the end of the hose with poison and shoot them in the air and scream with hysterical laughter when they fall out of the sky. I point at the fallen bug and make it a point to use it as an example to the rest. "You see this? You little &%&&^, I've got enough sh*t to wipe out your GRANDCHILDREN!!!! Get OUT OF MY YARD!!!" You know, I'm not kidding that-as I was writing this-my heart rate jumped. Crap. I have to go take another blood pressure pill. Wow. Talk about some gardening PTSD. WOW!

Tomorrow...well, make that TODAY, someone will win a FABULOUS prize pack! Guess the # of embossing folders that are residing in my craft room (and SWEAR not to tell my hubby) and you can win, win, WIN!! Leave your guesses..up to 3 a day, in the contest post dated last Monday and you're in the running! Good Luck!

  1. Hi peony lover and bug despiser. I circle my bed in the spring looking for the first shoots to appear and it is a very happy time. As to your embossing folders, the number you have that it, you said you over spend so hopefully it is just double digits not triple. so I am going to say double mine which would be about 64.
    Blessings

  2. Carmen, your card is beautiful, I love how you sponged all of the edges on the peony. I like the lace die, it always gives a look of elegance.
    Thanks, so much, for joining us for the Speedy TV Inspiration challenge.
