I guess threatening asparagus to grow wouldn't work, would it? Or anything, for that matter (oh, why don't you just grow up??)
I used a very old PSX asparagus stamp, which I love and a very cheap Michael's stamp, which I also love. Made a little 'barrow border', added an encouraging word, and a torn dictionary definition of 'asparagus.' I stamped and watercolored the asparagus with peeled paint Distress and then overstamped with the espresso truffle.
I love the last line of the definition: 'the word was corrupted to sparrowgrass in the 17th century and that form then came into general use, but since about 1800 it has been confined to the uneducated.' Whew, thank goodness I've never been that uneducated.

What a really cool looking card. Love the dictionary element. I like the asparagus image too. My husband is a truck driver and once took a load of asparagus to New Jersey. The person there said, "oh, you are the guy with the grass." Since then my husband asks me to fix "grass" when he wants asparagus.
