It has been such a busy month that it just flew by. I can't believe we are into September now. Where did the summer go? I've been working on canning with my husband because our tomatoes and beans are overflowing on the vine. Russ's sister, Bette and her husband, Tom, gave us a great Christmas gift last year: canning must haves... We have been harvesting, peeling, boiling, and smelling great smells from our kitchen. We just finished canning "Dilly Beans". My friend, Elaine, says they are great.. Can't wait to try them. Here are some pics from "the fruits of our garden" this year.
August was a wicked busy month for birthdays. My sister, Andrea, and her daughter, Emma, were the last birthdays in August that we celebrated. I had fun making cards for them. Here are the two I made :
On Emma's card I used MS balloon punch. I added the sentiment to a Spellbinder's label die cut. I wish I had done it in a different color than black now that I look at it. I like the pink and green of the card itself.
I am looking forward to September. Fall is my favorite season.. It's my son, Nathaniel's birthday.. What shall I make for a card.. Ummm......check back and see....Happy Fall!!!
