When I posted this card, I told you that this was an image I could see myself using over and over! I have already colored it with several different colors. Since yellow is my favorite color, this is one of my favorites that I have made with it so far. The image is from Michelle Perkett and is called Happy Birthday Flower Cupcake. The sentiment comes with it and for this card I used it as is and on the pink version, I cut out the cupcake and used the sentiment a little differently. I think is makes for a happy cheery card. The image was colored with Copics and the papers are Making Memories.
I am still playing around in my kitchen, canning everything that I can get my hands on! This past week has been filled with pickles. I think I will be serving pickles with every meal throughout the fall and winter. I have canned 54 pints of pickles (dill slices, kosher dill spears and whole pickles), dilly beans, pickled asparagus, 14 half-pints of corn salsa and got 10 pints of cream corn in the freezer. I was going to can the corn, but my pressure cooker will not work. It was used and I have had it for a long time and the lid seems to be a little warped so it isn't sealing tight enough so that the pressure can build up. The corn had to go in the freezer. I LOVE pickled asparagus but almost never buy it because it is so expensive. Kroger had asparagus on sale and I had a recipe and decided to give it a try. I can't wait to taste it.
My spare bedroom now has canned goods on almost every surface! My parents are about the only people that use that room, and my dad is a gardener and canner too so he won't think it's too weird that he has to set his duffle bag on the floor instead of on the dresser. I think he will find the room pretty relaxing. Although, I will probably have to remove the cherry stuff and the peach stuff or check his bag as he leaves.
Thanks for stopping by today!
