So Mushroom In Your Heart

I've been using an app lately that I just LOVE. It's called Seek, and it instantly identifies plants, animals and insects when you take a photo of them. I cannot imagine having this app as a child, because my gaming loving heart as an adult already wants to fill in all the classifications I haven't identified yet. 

It's helped me pick out plants for my yard on my walks, as I take photos of beautiful plants in my neighbors' yards. It tells you all sorts of information about each species you identify - like peak blooming time etc. It identified the little critters that hide on my orange tree. So fun. 

One of the types I don't have yet is fungi. I have not seen one mushroom since getting the app, so it's my mission now!

Growing up in the 70s, there was certain artwork that was ubiquitous - on fabric, in our doodles on our notebooks, and on the ever-present appliques that festooned our clothing. One of those was the fairytale-worthy red and white mushrooms, and I've always loved them. In real life, their common name is Fly Agaric.

I cannot resist mushroom stamps as a result. I used one of my very favorite stamp sets with a mushroom theme for today's card and video, which is just a simple Wreath Builder card. The video is below or HERE!
