Fresh From the Garden…

351 blk

A while back I had hinted at something coming, something exciting and fun…. WELL, it’s still coming! I was hoping to do it mid July, then it rolled around to the end of August…. THEN… I thought how cool it would be for my Blogaversary….but I think that will roll by without much fanfare also!

But stay tuned…. I do have something coming one of these days that I think many of you will grab at the chance to win! Oops… did I just give a hint?! Winking smile

And all those tomatoes from the other day? Eleven quarts of yummy spaghetti sauce, seven quarts of plain tomatoes, and nice pot of spaghetti sauce for our dinner last night! Mmmmm good!

~*~*~*~*~*~

Now, on to my card!

351 2

The Sketch today on Splitcoast is a fun tri-panel one. I flipped mine vertically to accommodate the image and turned it into an easel card.

SC351 Picked Just For You

I stamped Seed Packet in Distress Bundled Sage and also made a mask (stamping again on a large sticky note) and cut out only the “window” portion. Placing the mask over the image, I then stamped Dahlia in ColorBox Chalk Dark Peony, Rouge and Pink Pastel. The flowers were then colored with Copics. (forgetting that Chalk inks and Copics don’t play nicely together….they didn’t listen to Mr. Rogers, I over-stamped the flowers again in Dark Peony to redefine them)

Lots of distress sponging with Tea Dye and Bundled Sage, embossed edge is embossing border Iron Works.

I also took each panel and scored 1/4 inch around the edges using my Scor-buddy.

The Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio 3 and sentiment from the Garden Tag Set is popped up as my stop for the easel.

It’s raining today so that means we can’t pick anything which means I get the day off!! Yippee!!

Enjoy your day!

Thanks for stopping!!
