Good morning, ya’ll, on this three-day weekend! Hope you’re dry and getting ready to have a great Holiday! We are supposed to have some nice temperatures this weekend – tv weather just said the morning temps should be in the high 60’s!! Whooooooo-hoooooooo!! I hope I feel the need to have a little shiver!! 🙂
For today, I went back to the new Totally Trees stamp set. This is another one that I’m really loving – it’s got so many possible combinations to fuel your creativity! I used the set to make some little, tiny thank you notes, so I borrowed a little sentiment from One Big Meaning, too. I made a bunch of them, and also took a quick minute to make a custom gift box to hold the little notes. Take a look-see:
If you look, you’ll see that I added a couple of leaves, from the Vintage Leaves stamp set, cut with the Leaflets Framelits dies! When you open the box, the inside reveals 10 little note cards and matching envelopes. Continue reading
Made it to Friday again, y’all! Yippee! Only one more weekend and a week and then I’ll be on my way home! 🙂 Time for some home time – harvest the tons of tomatoes and Chile Peppers, maybe plant some more turnips – did I tell you I brought a mess of them with me? Cooked them last weekend – oh my goodness! They were sooooo good! I froze a bag of them to take home so Wayne can try them. But….they’re kind of calling my name – he may be out of luck! If y’all like turnips and have a garden – get you a packet of White Ball turnips. They’re spectacularly good!
No – I haven’t changed my blog to a garden show! 😉
Let’s do a card, shall we? This one took me back to one of the first stamp sets I got in the new catalog – in the Demonstrator pre-order. Pop of Paradise features a cute and saucy flamingo. I paired her with one of the cool sentiments in the set and gave her a little assist from the fun Love You Lots set. Take a look-see:

Well – it’s done. I’m officially in Savannah. And it’s officially hot as all get out here.
It actually went up from here to 102F. But at that point, my phone was just lying limply on the seat of the car, too hot to even care. 🙂
I was going to show you a picture of my packed Soul – which was also going to be my load-plan to get it all back home. My hubby can PACK A CAR. Like….seriously. But – hot. Too hot for photo ops – and I wanted to get back inside. So I forgot to take my load plan pictures. I drew a sketch. It probably won’t help. But I tried, okay?
I got everything unpacked and set up. It’s Deja Vu all over again…..
So – I’m cooking with gas and ready to rock! But…slowly and only inside. Cuz…hot!
On to the card for the day. It’s a selfie of Duck Duck. She got all dolled up and draped a pretty ribbon around her neck and…hitched herself to a wagon full of posies. Weird – I do not know where she got that wagon….And she asked me to make a card with the picture – so I did. And it seemed like the gorgeous host-exclusive set – Basket For You – was just the thing to complement her Chinese-goose self (yes, I’ve finally nailed down her….type). Take a look-see:
