Timeless Textured Butterfly Basics

What a beautiful weekend we had here! I figured we are pretty safe from frost at this point so I got busy and started planting some of my flowers in pots. All the pretty colorful flowers brighten up the yard and make me feel happy...BUT unfortunately there is someone who isn't happy!

A dirty rotten squirrel (or maybe chipmunk?) keeps digging up my planted flowers each night! Yesterday after replanting what I could salvage, I sprinkled cayenne pepper around each plant. This morning I found that most were left untouched, but there was one area that the little vandal went crazy in. I can only hope that he jumped in there busily searching for nuts and instead got a snootful of hot pepper! As he tried to wipe it from his nose and eyes he just spread it around making it worse...because his filthy paws were covered in the red hot pepper! Ahhh...revenge is sweet! Hopefully he gets the message (tells his friends) and moves on ...or this is going to get very costly and even more frustrating.

Here's one pretty flower my nemesis can't mess with...

It's been a while since I used Butterfly Basics and I thought it would be pretty combined with some of the stamps from Timeless Textures. I used Mint Macaron, Perfect Plum and Pool Party to create a soft look perfect for Spring or any occasion. The Venetian Crochet Trim (retiring) tied with Linen Thread along with a Basic Pearl add the finishing touches to the card.

Thanks for visiting. If you have any good suggestions for keeping the squirrels and chipmunks from destroying flowers...please share!
