Pinwheel Margaritas

Too late to get into any stories this evening. I will tell you that I think most of the mired marigolds are going to survive. I will also mention that I STILL think upside -down-hanging-tomato-bags are RIDICULOUS.

I think I'm in a slump - only two cards to post! And the first one is one of those situations where concept and execution did not intersect on the roadway of cardmaking. It's colorful - I'll just keep it at that...
