Fruits of the earth and my hand.....

lame title I know but the creative juices for title making isn't flowing.....
On Tuesday I went to a baby shower as part of my gift I made some thank you cards---there were only ten. I offered to make how ever many she needed here are the cards I finished yesterday:
I'm loving dry embossing! It's so easy and gives SO much to a project. I'm also putting my old red sizzix machine to use. The thank you stamp is from Hero Arts, the pattern paper is DCWV baby girl line, and the butterfly was cut with my Cricut machine from the Hannah Montana cartridge. They turned out nicely and look SO MUCH better in person.

My garden is coming right along. My DD took these pictures for me yesterday... My strawberries don't like the heat so much but are producing a few berries.
I didn't kill my tomato plants! Man are they finicky....I learned not to give them so much water and they both have survived--luckily...I just give them a little water and leave them a lone and they're doing great.
Funny thing about this summer squash, it was the last plant on the tray at Lowe's. It was sickly and small--I REALLY wanted some, so I bought the plant. You would NEVER know that this plant was ever little and looking like it was going to die. Kind of exciting to see food in the garden. My Basil plant is just taking off too--smells GREAT. Not sure what I'm going to use it for, but I did read that they like the heat. I'll have to take pictures of our other experiments in the yard, so far we have only lost one plant! What's cool is that I can take this back to the store and get a refund. ALL plants have a year warranty even the annuals. SWEET!
Well, I've got to run to the school to help in the classroom. Thanks for stopping by! Hope your Thursday is a GREAT one!
