Customize your card with Memorable Moments

 
I love being able to use stamps to customize a birthday card (or anniversary) with the number of years. Memorable Moments makes it easy! All of the stamps used for this card came from that set.

 
I started with an Old Olive card and added a layer of Mossy Meadow (new In Color). I think this designer paper is gorgeous, so I kept the layout clean and simple, adding only a Mossy Meadow bow with a glue dot under the label framelit diecut.

World of Dreams for a happy birthday

 
Happy Thursday! It's a beautiful day here, with lots going on (as usual). My club members this month made a card that uses washi tape, a silver button and a bow of linen thread.

 
I started with a Whisper White card and stamped an acrylic block in Sahara Sand (after trying to get a watercolored background with that same color ink and an aqua painter). Then I stamped the floral stem from World of Dreams in Elegant Eggplant and added a few rhinestones for bling. I used a Crushed Curry marker to ink only the sentiment from a Label Love stamp. I CASE'd this card from the SU! catalog.
 
Photo: I'm finally at the end of my jam making marathon. One batch of blackberry, one batch of blackberry with a few raspberries, one batch of raspberry, one batch of strawberry-rhubarb, and one batch (only 2 jars) of a refrigerator rhubarb jam made with strawberry gelatin instead of pectin.
 
I spent the day yesterday making jam - a batch of blackberry from berries my hubby and I had picked the day before, a bath of blackberry with a handful of raspberries because I just ran short, a batch of raspberry, a batch of strawberry-rhubarb, and a batch of refrigerator rhubarb jam made with strawberry gelatin instead of pectin (that one only made 2 pints).
 
Today, I'm mailing off some of the jam to a nephew and friends, after I take my boy to the high school to get his photo taken and picks up his school schedule. Summer always seems to go by so fast! There are only two weeks till school starts.

Last day for Weekly Deals - great discounts on folders!

Weekly Deals

Wow! I can't believe I missed a week on my blog. I've been doing lots of canning and baking, since I visited an awesomely inexpensive fruit stand with my friend and my niece last week.

These are only the veggies I bought!
I made dilly beans with the green beans. They won't be ready to eat for another week. I swapped a neighbor a jar of these beans for her homemade salsa. It was terrific salsa, with fresh corn and black beans. I think I got the better deal!

The tomatoes have been eaten. The corn was blanched and frozen for two separate meals (one on the cob and the other just the kernels). I still have the green peppers and a couple of cucumbers, though my daughter and I enjoyed cucumber sandwiches today (always refreshing!).

apple crisp
My kids love homemade applesauce and go through it quickly. I do have some leftover apples, even after making a huge apple crisp! A friend of mine gave us some peaches, so I'd made a peach crumble the week before. This same friend also let my daughter and I pick raspberries at his house. We got enough for two batches of jam - a staple in our house during the school year, when the kids take peanut butter and jam sandwiches for lunch every day. I shared a couple of jars with my friend to say "thank you."




Photo: Just tried making refrigerator sweet pickles for the first time ever. Have to wait 24 hours before I can test them on the kids.
refrigerator sweet pickles

I bought a box of pickling cucumbers. I've never worked with them before. I found an easy fridge sweet pickle recipe online and tried it. These are already gone! It's easy to eat a jar of pickles as part of dinner, or with a potato salad - which I made yesterday. The funky color liquid is because I used ground mustard instead of mustard seed with the turmeric, vinegar and salt. Tastes the same. Different look for the juice, but that's it. I'll be making another batch of sweet pickles tonight.

It's also a busy time for my Lions Club. I enlisted my hubby's help with highway clean-up this morning, and am working on birthday calendar advertisers. I love community service. It's such a great feeling to make my little corner of the world a better place. I wish I could've taken my kids, but there's a minimum age requirement of 16. They're not quite there yet.

Photo: I love this photo of Eric Blais helping my Poulsbo Lions Club pick up litter today as part of the Adopt a Highway program. It's the second time he's helped out. Doing something like this always makes you feel good the entire day!
My hubby and his treasure - a cone.
So you have TODAY - that's it - to take advantage of discounts on these items. Then come tomorrow, there will be different products offered at a discount. You may order any of these things through my Stampin' Up! website - http://therubberroom.stampinup.net.

I've got my Card Clubs starting up this month. The first is this Wednesday at 6 p.m., and the second club is meeting Aug. 18 at 7 p.m. Each club is welcoming new members. If you're not sure a club is for you, you're welcome to come and check it out. I just need an email or text in advance, so I can have enough card stock prepped. If you just come and make the cards, the cost is only $5. If you decide to join the club, the only commitment is a $30 order each month. In return, you get free catalogs, hostess benefits, and special incentives and patterns from me.

Also, I've got a 20-card all-occasion class coming up on Saturday, August 30. It starts at 11 a.m. All clubs and classes are at my Poulsbo studio. I hope to see you soon!

You bring out the best in everyone

 
How would you love to receive a card with this sentiment? Wouldn't it make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, even with an accidental smudge? This card was made using the World of Dreams stamp set (page 127 of the catalog).
 

 
I went with earthy colors on this 3" x 6" card, adding a bit of woodgrain embossing on Early Espresso card stock. The sentiment was diecut with an Apothecary Accents framelit.
 
My 13-year-old daughter is spending the night with her best friend, who will be undergoing a heart operation August 5. I hope you'll take a minute to say a quick prayer for Erin. She was born with a heart defect, and this operation will replace a heart valve that she's simply outgrown. Thanks!
