TCP Tuesday and some fruits of our labor to share....

Well, for those of you who read my blog, I am having a MUCH better day than yesterday! Yay for me! Sorry, I just had to cheer for myself! I got my hair done this morning, which was fabulous...Lee Anne put more of the red underneath, and I love it! I'll have to have Ker take a picture of it, and post it so y'all can see why I'm so excited.

I've been so 'out of it' with it being summer and everything, that I didn't even realize that it was Tuesday! But was so excited for TCP Tuesday! I just picked up a couple of new Cat's Pajamas Stamps last week, and now I had a reason to use one! Susan was the hostess with the mostess this week, and the stipulation for this week's challenge was that you had to use a stamp with a cake....any kind of cake. I had a lot of fun with this card. I used my Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Paper...I just can't get enough of this stuff. Love it, love it love it! Everything else is SU

The past few days I've been really into making 4.25 square cards.....I don't know why...I just seem to slip into patterns real easily, and right now I am in the 4.25 square card pattern....I wonder how long it will last!

And here are a few pictures of the boys....we are finally reaping the benefits of our garden that we planted in May. The boys have been so excited to see everything grow, more this year than in years past.....perhaps that's because they actually planted some of the things all by themselves! Each of them picked a different kind of squash last night....and we even had the spaghetti squash with our BBQ ribs last night! YUM!

The Goods:
Paper: Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, all SU; Cosmo Cricket Early Bird PP
Ink: Basic Black, Not Quite Navy, Crushed Curry Marker, Certainly Celery Marker, Not Quite Navy Marker, Copics
Stamps: Piece of Cake, Cat's Pajamas; Birthday Bliss, SU.
Extras: Vanilla/Kiwi Satin Ribbon, random buttons!
