Thanks for stopping in today.  I've got something that I think is kind of cool to share with all of you today.  My father is in a nursing home and the sibs and I have been trying to get his house all cleaned out.  It's a family farm that has been in the family for 4 generations.  It's a very special place to all of us.  My mom and dad were collections of MANY, MANY different things primarily antiques.  While going through one of the boxes,  I came across these.

 They are some labels for a can of tomatoes that were never on a can!  I thought they were something I needed to bring home.

What to do with them?  I decided to use part of one to make a card.  My bestie grows some wonderful cherry tomatoes and give us a lot of them.

See below the date is on the bottom.

This is the card I came up with for Cheri.  She is always so generous and her tomatoes are delicious!

I just love how it turned out letting the image do all the work!  
Thanks for looking.

Hi everyone!  Here I am again sliding in by the skin of my teeth!!  About the only time I get to make anything anymore is on Sunday.  The pics not the greatest because it just rained here this afternoon, so it's still cloudy.
I am always drawn to My Mind's Eye paper and with that being said, the patterned paper is Lost & Found Halloween.  The colors are soft and muted like I like.  I don't remember the name of the place that I ordered the wonderful crinkle ribbon from, but it's so cool  because of how the colors run that!
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great week!

I didn't fall off the face of the earth, I been enjoying SUMMER!  I've made a few cards here and there, but not taken the time to do pics and posts...forgive me?!
Mojo Monday is always great for inspiration and while its a gloomy day here in NW Indiana, I thought I'd make a birthday card for a co-worker.  Do you ever get tired of Graphic 45?  NOT me...even though it's one of the older lines, I still love it and think it works nicely with this sketch.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you are enjoying what ever season you are in right now.
