Homegrown….a Peek

CCM Sliding Popup blk

Once again we have a HUGE garden, unfortunately weather conditions this year delayed planting and made a difference in production! Not that I won’t be canning or freezing… just not doing as much of it!

Lloyd planted this Big Bertha variety of bell pepper this year… aptly named!



Each one cut in half equals about a regular pepper! They’re in the freezer for use when snow is on the ground and the plants are long gone!

Today I think I’ll make Pina Colada Zucchini Jam! And next week I will be canning tomatoes.


Okay, now for a peek at something new from
Our Daily Bread designs
available Sept. 1

CCM Sliding Popup

This is Seed Packet stamped in Distress Forest Moss and Fired Brick and sponged with Wild Honey, Scattered Straw and Bundled Sage, Tea Dye, and Walnut Stain. The leafy filigree is colored with Copics.

It’s a Sliding Pop-Up card from Creative Cuts and More . I think these are so fun and so different from the “ho hum” side fold card! Everything comes cut and scored ready to embellish and assemble. The cardstock is Neenah Smooth White and Bazzill Leapfrog Canvas.

You can make them pull either way, I chose to pull down on the mechanism which I embossed with Iron Works embossing border. I added a “white writing area” and stamped the little pot from another new set coming, Garden Tag Set.


Well, I guess it’s time to get busy, that zucchini needs shredded!
Adding the pic of the jam…tastes pretty good!


Thanks for stopping!
