A Few Cards and Vegies From the Garden

Hi there everyone. How you all doing today??? Hope you are enjoying August. July was kind of a rough month for us....so I am taking August one day at a time and trying to get over the hurdles as they come. In between the hurdles, I found some time to make a few cards. Sorry about the lighting on a few of these pictures. I tried something different....guess I won't do this again. I thought the lighting from above and the side lamp would do the trick....but no, it didn't.

So anyways....these cards are from the stampin'up  Paper Pumpkin Kits. They are really neat cause all the supplies are in the box to put these cards together. I probably will donate these cards to Hospice, maybe keep one for a sample. The "hooray" is a wooden piece that really adds to the card. The circle is covered with washi tape. The card itself already had the watercolor mark on it and the I stamped the star bursts and saying "it's your day" on the card.

The American Flag card is a napkin glued on card stock. I just added the Thanks stamp. I have made quite a few of these cards for Hospice. They will be given to the War Veterans in October.
Another couple of cards from the Stampin'up Paper Pumpkin Kits. This was July's kit....Watermelon's. Again, all the supplies are in the box to create these cute cards.
From the same box, the stamp to make the watermelon and the inks too. I like the watermelon stamp. You could make a gift bag with the supplies or turn the bag into a card like the two cards on each side of the bag. The two cards at the bottom, used the left overs from the bag.
AND....vegies from the garden!!! I can't believe I FINALLY got a zucchini!!! I have tried so many times to grow these guys....to no avail. I planted this plant right on the side of the house. There happens to be a bee nest real close by....I guess they pollinated at least ONE zucchini!!! The tomato's are doing wonderful in the front of the yard....two bushes are producing more then I ever have seen I will take a picture of the tomato plants tomorrow. I have so many stakes trying to hold the tomatoes up with lots of old nylons.
Well, time to close, it's going on 2am and I am just finishing this post, (took me all night). JP is home and eating his dinner. Chicken soup, steak, potatoes, corn, cucumbers and a bagel. You all have a good night and keep looking up better days are coming. Cheers ~ Louise

Your cards are great. The flag card is perfect for Veterans. I've never glued one to a card base, it seems like the napkin would tear. Did you use a single layer of napkin? Isn't it wonderful to have fresh from the garden vegetables! The summer is flying by way too fast.

Hi Brenda....Thanks on the cards. Yes, peel one layer of the napkin. No it does not tear. Glue stick the card stock then lay the single layered napkin on the card stock and smooth out like wall paper. Let dry and cut off ends. I am always checking out napkins at the stores to see if they would make great cards. Needless to say, I have lots of napkins. Yes, love the tomatoes and their taste is so much better then store bought.

Thanks so much for telling me about this. I think I will try this for Thanksgiving or maybe even Halloween. I've seen some gorgeous napkins so I hope I can do this.
