Forest Pine in the Snow

Minidottree
Good Morning I'm over at the Memory Box Blog today!  Has everyone recovered a bit from the Blog Blitzing?  To counteract the 90+ temps here for a couple of days I made a snowy card.  Wishful thinking and all.  First I inked my background with Distress Ink then down went the Forest Pine G2016 with Archival Ink.  Next I put white embossing paste throught the Mini Dot Stencil 88533.  For the overlay piece I stenciled the Flurry Frame 88579 with Distress Ink and cut out an oval from the center.  Lastly came greeting stamp Wonderful Time CS2013B.  Hope you like it and the warm fuzzy feeling you get from it isn't just from the Summer heat seeping in!

Have a Wonderful Day and Thank You for stopping by and sharing part of your Day with me!

Good Morning!  I'm over at the Memory Box Blog Today!   Happy Blitz Thursday!  Aren't all of the projects amazing?  I can't wait to see more!

Today I am sharing with you the Shining Candles Die 98937. I just love how gorgeous and traditional it is.  Definately the perfect focal point for any project.  Today I have embeded the die cut into my card and then filled in the candles with Glossy Accents.  Everything else was colored with Copic Markers and the Gold bits got some stickles.

Garden Update - First Harvest

 Last weekend I took these pictures.  We put up little trellis' for the melon and the cucumber to climb on since they were taking over the garden and attaching themselves to all the other poor plants.
 Now the Zucchini is free and you can see the Carrots and Lettuce plainly.  The cucumbers aren't laying on them.
 The Peppers are free of the Melon but the Tomatoes are still encroaching I need to do something about that.
 Cucumbers look happy climbing.

This is the Melon next to the Yellow Squash(or behind now).  Then an overall view.
This is the garden yesterday things are filling in now that the vines are up on the trellis'.  When we put them up we found a nice size Yellow Squash that I picked since it was raining so much, didn't want it to rot.
 Abbi and I also picked the Green Beans for dinner, YUMMY
So this is our first Harvest.
I roasted them together and made a little veggie medley.  Just EVOO, Salt and Pepper and they were so delicious!
