My Time Made Easy Contest Entry

Created these two super cute cards using My Time Made Easy designs. I am entering the contest to be a design team member. Hopefully I will succeed. Thanks for looking.
The first card is made using the Water and Waverly Wiggles digi image. He has been colored with Stampin Up watercolored pencils. Pop dotted onto the Tasty Sampler digital paper designs and some scrap textured cardstock I also used Karen Foster brads to mount the card together. This was a very simple card to create. I was able to print, color and mount together.

This is the second card I created. Also using the same digi image Water and Waverly Wiggles. I also colored with Stampin Up colored pencils. Adhered this cutie with pop dots to retired Close To My Heart papers and scrap cardstock. The ribbon used is some generic grossgrain. Also added some fake stitching along the strip to make it pop.

Here's What's Cookin'

Well I have been hard at work this morning and for the last two weeks actually. Been canning lots of fruits and vegetables from our yard and some from farmers market. I must say it has kept me quite busy. I have found a new love I guess. To add to many other loves I enjoy. Today I canned Strawberry Fig Preserves. Whew had to get in and out of that kitchen before it got hot to. Average temperature here in Georgia has been hovering around 96... Believe me and thats hot. Steamy to, no rain for days. Nor even a good cloud cover, all sunny skies and hot ones. I canned 20 jelly jars this morning and will probably do the same tomorrow morning. Our figs are just starting to be ready for harvest so it is canning season again. Check out the fruit harvest below.
