Time Out #184...Reminder...You Are Simply Amazing

There is still time to play along with the current challenge at Time Out.  We challenge you to make a card inspired by the quote above.  I just love this quote, and am quite ready for the sunshine and long days of spring that April brings.

I was inspired to create a card showing several plants that are currently in my backyard.  Sunny San Diego is actually a desert climate, and we recently added lots of different kinds of succulents to replace much of our grass.  There is a double meaning to this sentiment, as it will be going to someone I think is amazing, but also expresses the amazement I have for these hardy plants in my yard.


I used Indoor Garden stamps from our wonderful sponsor, Altenew, to create the focal point on my card.  The sentiment is from an old stamp and die combination from Verve (sadly out of business now).

Please head over to Time Out to see more inspiration from our fabulous Guest Designer, Helen, and the Time Out Design Team.  Altenew is our sponsor for this challenge.  Details for the prize are on the Time Out Challenge Blog.

This challenge will run another week.  I hope you will take some Time Out of your busy schedule to play along with us.  

Thanks for Visiting


  1. Oh I love succulents-cacti right? I had baby ones in my house for a while in bright red and how wonderful you have them in your garden-I think we need a team Whatapp photo! I really love how you grounded these-a PTI splash? And the perfect placement of the sentiment. Like your take on the challenge meaning, super creative and I hadn't thought of that!

  2. Your card is simply amazing, love it!

  3. Such a sweet your succulents and cacti, so beautiful!!!

  4. This is wonderful, Joyce. I love that linear design. I also love the earthy colors and that wonderful die cut in your sentiment.

  5. This is beautiful! I love the combination of the mostly one-layer stamping with the two die cut elements. And I imagine succulents are much more eco-friendly than your grass was!

  6. So beautiful, I haven't used this set in a long time. A reason to pull it out again!
