Waves of Inspiration Father’s Day Card

Pansy Patch Quick and Easy Card

I love pansies....the vibrant colors, soft petals...they are beautiful to use in landscaping....unless you have rogue bunnies in your yard!  A few years ago I bought about 80 pansy plants at a local high school fundraiser to fill a rather large flower bed in front of my house.  I planted them one afternoon.  They looked… Continue reading Pansy Patch Quick and Easy Card
