I was walking across the yard yesterday, and all I could hear was, “Crunch, crunch, crunch…” Mercy. Was it only a month ago we were saying we needed a little break in the rain? I’m not going to tell God how to do His job, but it would be nice if it were spread out a little better. We did get some rain today, and it was lovely. It’s really humid and muggy, though, and when I went to our technique class today, I discovered that it must be fertilizing week again. Blech!!! I don’t care how many years I lived on the farm, I still hate field fertilizing day! And when it’s humid and muggy, it just seems to hang in the air, making it hard to catch a good breath. I often wonder if I got mixed up in the hospital and really was born to a city couple. I doubt it. I look too much like both parents.
I like these lovely flowers, that were created without the use of “organic fertilizer.”

The “embossing inside embossing” was one of our techniques today, and this is the card we made using the technique. I’m loving the Tangerine Tango designer paper! It’s so bright and cheery. I made this with a friend in mind, so I’d better sign this and get it in the mail. And the fruity colors (Concord and Tangerine) just reminded me I need to hit the grocery store.
Have a great day – and thanks for stopping by!
