Guest stamper!

I decided to showcase a guest stamper today on my blog. Shari B is a member of my SU family. She is an incredibly talented gal and loads of fun! Just don't get her laughing while she is driving...it can get scarey! This is a card she did for a hostess set swap. I didn't participate in the swap but she was nice enough to give me one anyway! I really like this card! The colors just pop and the background looks awesome! She used Baroque Motif for the background and the flowers and thank you are from a new hostess set....which I don't remember the name of. If you REALLY want to know...book a workshop with me for July and you can see it in the new catalog along with it's name! ;o) The colors she used are Purely Pomegranate and Soft Sky. Hopefully, by the end of the next catalog, I will be able to spell that right....don't hold your breath tho!


In other news...I was innocently walking through the grocery store this morning when I was suddenly assaulted by several rather large bags of carrots. They just jumped right into my cart! It was a rather pleasant surprise when I saw there very reasonable price. I decided to bring them home. My children cheered and promptly picked up the peeler and assumed their positions for the canning ritual that has become an almost daily occurance at our home this summer. My daughter actually had two friends come over and help. I didn't even ask for this help, I promise! But heck, I'm not dumb enough to turn them away! I think they had fun....we ended up with 60 pints and 7 quarts of carrots. I may have to do more....my vegetarian daugther has already opened two pints to eat and they are still warm from the oven!

Aren't they lovely?? (The girls are pretty cute too! )I 'paid' the girls for their services by treating them to a movie. If you have not gone to see Evan Almighty yet, GO! It is a wonderful movie!! WAY better than Bruce Almighty. (sorry Jim) Steve can be funny without being naughty! What a thought! It was funny, clean and frankly...inspiring. I highly recommend it.
