I struggled with this card; I think I should have left the gold panel plain instead of adding the gold embossing, but I hope she likes it anyway!!!
I did a little stamping on the Pink Pirouette card base with Versamark and the swirl from Everything Eleanor; the gold embossed floral is a SAB set from last year, Fresh Vintage, stamped on Brushed Gold cardstock; the embossed sentiment is from the retired set Fabulous Phrases, punched out with the jewelry tag punch:
We picked almost 40 pounds of blueberries in the last three days from our very generous neighbor’s farm. Cassidy was totally enthralled by the trays of frozen berries:
John and I have a system for washing and drying them; he built a huge wooden tray with mesh on the bottom; he washes them with the hose, then dries them with the air hose from his shop! I put freezer paper on cookie sheets, lay them out in a single layer with little blocks of wood in each corner and stack them up in the freezer. Once they’re frozen, we roll up the paper and pour the berries in freezer bags! Cassidy also thought the little wooden blocks were fun to play with….honestly, these kept her busy the whole entire time I was working in the kitchen:
