(Current) S&S Midweek Challenge

Today we are creating a card with a monkey on it ;) Who doesn't love the monkey enclosure at the zoo? My favorite monkey is the softly colored, sweet-faced douc langur. This challenge stumped me because I could not remember having a stamp or other image of a monkey in my collection...until I searched the "odds-and-ends" stash. Here is my card.

(Belated) S&S Midweek Challenge

Well, this is one week too late, but I finally found a way to use one of my new brads! The color challenge last week was to use blue and yellow on a card. Those cute brads had been lying on my desk for weeks waiting for me. I have also begun using my pile of alphabet stickers per Sandy's advice. I have these small letters in oodles of colors!

S&S Midweek Challenge

The challenge this week is to create a card using "Things with Wings". I made this one as a thank you card for a friend who gave me a grab bag of patterned paper, embellishments, and stickers she purchased at a garage sale. She knows I make cards for OWH and wow, she found quite a stash! She also loves birds, so I knew this design would work perfectly.
The background DP is from Graphis45, can't remember where the beautiful bird came from.

On a Family Farm in Louisiana

The Annual Family Reunion has been held on the first Sunday of June one remembers. I figure for at least 50 years.
The Farm is lovely and peaceful and loads of work beginning at sun-up.
This year, I helped with blueberry sorting and collecting eggs from the hen house. Those are the easy chores.
Then there's the reward of eating fresh fruits and vegetables and scrambled eggs. Heaven!
