Knowing Peace...

Just sharing some garden shots and a quick card today!

LloydOkra1Lloyd in his beloved okra! He has a huge patch...
one day he picked 20 pods off ONE plant!

RedPotatoLg2He's dug some HUGE potatoes too!

 applepie jars 2010My daughter and I canned 21 jars
of Apple Pie in a Jar yesterday!
And still have lots more apples!

See this post for my Crafts 'n things publication and here for the recipe!

Now, here's my card. Two challenges from Splitcoast... Just One sheet of cardstock and Birds of a Feather.


I stamped and embossed Brocade Borders, stamped one of the quotes from Peace, then masked it to stamp Brocade Background. I added some white accents with a gel pen and sponged the Kraft cs with Distress inks.

F4A28 Knowing Peace I trimmed the card down to 4" and slid the end so it just fit in the Spellbinders Big Scalloped Rectangle (lg). The May Arts ribbon and Bow Easy  bow are lightly distressed with a heat tool.

Have a safe and happy
Labor Day weekend!

thanks for stopping!!

Hi Dawn~

Okra? Eewww~ LOL! I love the idea of apple pie in a jar. What great hostess gifts that would make!

I just love this little card. I think it is so elegant and the message is is not surrounded by busy-ness. I love the brocade borders! They look wonderful embossed...and that bow is amazing! I like it "slightly distressed!"

Have a safe and fanulous weekend, too, Dawn!

Hey Dawn, again!

I left a comment on the "apple pie in a jar" link, and it disappeared and it won't let me back in!

I was wondering if there is perhaps a way to make a non-canners version that could be frozen? Do you think so?

I absolutely LOVE okra!!! I eat them any way at all - one right after the other! Your garden is amazing.

The card, however, blew me away! WOWIE! I love how complex and detailed it is, I can't believe it's one piece of cardstock. FABulous work!!!!
