One More Grown With Love

This bundle is just too darn much fun! I promise, I'll move onto something new with the next post, but I had to show you just one more card. Another easy one, this time using the marker-to-stamp technique where you color on the stamp with Stampin' Write Markers, "huff" on it to make sure it's moist, and then stamp!

I like that almost all the elements of the stamp have coordinating dies, because fussy-cutting the inside of the watering can handle would have been a challenge for me.

Don't you think the Bitty Bows make the perfect adornment? Soooo cute!

Still Grown With Love

This is another image from the Grown With Love stamp set. My sweet downline, Sherry, is letting me borrow the bundle so I can make lots of useful bits for future cards. Yippee!

For this one, I stamped the flower image twice, in Old Olive and Crushed Curry. The terra cotta pot was stamped in Cajun Craze, and a tiny bow was added. Pretty simple, really. Oh, I almost forgot! I also added some Old Olive "splats" from Touches of Texture.

 Old Olive 2-1/8" x 3-1/2"
 Copper Foil 2-3/8" x 3-3/4"
 Color Theory DSP 4" x 5-1/4"

Grown With Love

Sorry for the delay in getting this posted....I have the perfect excuse! The garden has suddenly exploded in squash. I'm not kidding! Last week I was taking a colander out to harvest the pickling cucumbers, and maybe a zucchini or two. This week I think I need this wagon! I've been picking every day and I still can't seem to keep up! I guess the garden has been really feeling the love lately, LOL.

I'm playing along with Freshly Made Sketches this week; this is the sketch:

Had I known just how prolific the patty pan squash was going to be, I would have planted only one plant. There are three out there, and that's not counting the five zucchini plants and the three butternut squash that are trying to take over the entire garden.

Yes, there are other things also producing like crazy (need any green beans or jalapenos?), but it's the squash that is threatening to consume me! I'm still waiting impatiently for the tomatoes to get ripe. They're starting to get some color, but aren't ready yet. So, instead of making salsa with all those jalapenos, I'm making jalapeno poppers for the freezer.

Here is three days' worth of squash, which doesn't include the ones we ate (six patty pan, six zucchini) or dehydrated (eight zucchini).

You thought I was exaggerating, didn't you?

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

I'm posting the winner of the drawing for the Coffee Cafe bundle now, and will have a card for you later today.

There were eleven entries (some had multiple entries), so I wrote each entry on a piece of paper, folded it up, mixed them all together, then randomly assigned a number to each one. Then I went to the random number generator, which picked number 106.

That was Becky's number, so Becky you are the winner, congratulations! I'm sending it today.
