We expanded our veggie garden this year and hubby has been busy tending to it. We have two cabbage plants, one purple and one green. This is the green on and the white dot on the top is a quarter to put it in perspective. Also, to put it in perspective, it measures 32 inches in circumference. Let's see - - there's slaw, cooked cabbage, sauerkraut (never made that and don't think I'll start now), cabbage rolls. How else can we use this up? The purple one is getting about as big so time is off the essence.

The doily is a die cut, as is the printed and solid frame. The butterfly is also a die cut. The flowers were cut using my electronic cutter and the little flowers and leaves were punched. I added a flag and the extra sheet of paper inside was held in place with ribbon.
It was kinda different to made such a large card but a good opportunity to use some of my larger die cuts.

A local friend gave us permission to fish in her pond while we had kids here for the family reunion. All nine kids did some fishing and everyone caught more than one fish. The fish were released so we can go again and catch them. All kids were quite excited and it was a fun experience.
There are some beautiful water lilies in the pond to provide some color as well as shade for the fish. I couldn't resist taking some photos of them.

This card was inspired by one I saw on the internet. I enjoy doing white on occasion and it looks good with little touches of color.
I folder embossed the circle using a diffuser. The flower is a Hero Arts image and it was due cut. I cut the flags out of cardstock and punched the butterfly. Pretty quick and simple.
The pink is just a background color for the photography process.

I saw a card similar to this on Pinterst but unfortunately I didn't keep track of who the creator was. Sorry about that. I cut two black squares and one red square and matted them with the opposite color in a slightly larger size. The leafy branch is a die cut and the flower is a punch. I added a faux jewel for the flower's center. The design was complete with little dots of black dimensional paint. The pink is just the background I used for taking the photo.
