New succulent ATC's!!!

Well...where have I been and what have I been doing??? I can tell you that I have become an apathetic poster...but a voracious reader! I just cannot muster up any energy or excitement to make any ATC's, or take photos. What is wrong with me? LOLOL...but...then something happened today to give me such a lift, and a possible burst of energy...a little envelope arrived in the mail from Holland...

It contained a BIGGGGG surprise from Marianne, at Mandalas and More, and what colors!!! She knows my favorite color is ORANGE, so she sent me a beautiful ATC of that color. Then she knows I love succulent plants, so she made me a pink Desert Rose bloom! Isn't it just gorgeous! These two cards in front of the blue flower card that came with them, and WOW!!! Marianne...you are so sweet to think of me and send these to me, out of the clear blue!!! I am so happy! Thanks so much! The card will be added to my art board, and the ATC's in my book...


I am planning a little succulent planting surprise this weekend. Stay tuned...

beautiful cards and colors... I should probably go and check out her page... By the way, I love the Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy-Turvy' in your header.

A succulent planting surprise? way cool, I can hardly wait... can't do any planting myself right now, as it's been storming all day yesterday, and another round is coming through in a few minutes...

I am happy my little things gave you positive energy!
I think maybe you are still tired from your Germany trip, so many emotions...........
I am curious what you will plant, I hope a little desert rose is among them...... I know I would plant them if I lived in the right climate. I am a bit jealous!

Have a nice weekend Julie and take care!
