My Aunt Irene is having a birthday and she rides a Harley, so One Wild Ride is the perfect stamp set!  I love the combination of Harley and pink and sparkly.  Hope your birthday is awesome Aunt Irene!

Have I shared my DIY summer project with you?  Several years ago my kids wanted a backyard trampoline, but Superman was worried someone might get hurt.  Later, I decided to ask for a trampoline for Mother’s Day and Superman gave in.

We’ve had the trampoline a long time and the springs are starting to rust.

So Abby and I went to WalMart and bought 16 $1 pool noodles.  I used a utility knife and cut each noodle lengthwise.

I then cut the noodles into 6 pieces, the length of each spring.  My trampoline has 96 springs.

Isn’t it cute?!  I love it!  Did you also notice I also have a “Hosta Farm” under my trampoline?  My friend Teresa gave me a few hostas several years ago.  I’ve been growing them under my trampoline and then moving them out to areas around my yard.  My yard is full of hostas now.  So…are you wondering who jumps on the trampoline?  As the kids were growing up, lots of days after school we would go out and jump, talk and I would listen to my kids.  This summer I didn’t always have a kid at home, but I still jump even by myself.  (Remember, I was a gymnast!)  I like to go out in the mornings and weed, water, and take card of my flowers and vegetable gardens.  Before I go back in, I usually jump on the trampoline.  It’s a great way to get your heart rate up fast. I always hope no one sees me.  The neighbors have never mentioned it.  They are probably embarrassed for me!

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

    What a cute card! Wait — it’s a masculine type card, so I’ll say How Fierce! I really love the embossing. It really pops. Your trampoline addition looks SO good! Have a good rest of the summer & thanks so much for sharing!
