Just for You

One of my most favorite habits is sunflower seeds (I absolutely LOVE them). This spring my husband planted a "giant" sunflower on the side of the house, but because of the weather being so cool this summer i'm not sure we're going to actually get the sunflower seeds out of it. It has taken all this time for the plant to grow and I would never have believed how big it got. I was expecting maybe a large flower with lots of large seeds?????? Well, we still have to see about that, but look at this plant, it's up to the eve of the house. It's HUGE and look how large the stalk is on it; it's the size of some trees we've purchased!!! In the past any sunflower we have grown have only been maybe 6-7 feet high, so this was a total surprise to me. I'll let you know if we get anything from the flower or not.

I have a very special friend/customer who always orders lots of really fun stuff. So since she ordered outside her club or any other of my events, I wanted to thank her, so I made her a card that she can send to someone else if she wishes..... I always hesitate posting cards on my site because so many times I have cased them; thinking I haven't a creative bone in my body.. I know I've mentioned before that when i actually create them, I receive more comments than if I copied someone elses.... ha Anyway, this card is totally created by me... I hope there isn't one like it out there somewhere because it would be a total accident. Both of the stamp sets used are hostess sets out of the 2010/2011 Idea Book and Catalog. You can earn these sets with a workshop with a merchandise order of $150.00 or $300.00 for the Afterthoughts set. Call me if you would like to host your own workshop, invite your friends, have snacks, gossip, laugh and make cards.......
