Happy Monday morning, everyone!
Like you, the weekend is always half busy and half relaxing and this one was no exception. I love to take the time during the summer to garden, check on the hives, and believe it or not, shop the farmer’s markets for organic produce and look for local sources of grass fed beef, chicken, cheeses, breads….etc. But, I also like to bake fresh biscotti and pick and cook the goodies from my garden. I guess you could say that I am somewhat of a homebody.
Yesterday morning, the hubs and I took a bike ride through the Rail Trail here in Monroe. The best part of this ride is that you can take it all the way down to Trumbull and back, roundtrip for 14.5 miles. We have been doing this most Sunday mornings and to tell you the truth, the earlier we get out the better, since it makes for some very quiet time. It is a nice break from my usual exercise routine.
Today’s card is totally Gorgeous Grunge with Four You. It is my August Thank You card and it is yours if you place an order with me during this month. The best part about this card is it is gender neutral. Switch out the Thank You for Happy Birthday and you have a terrific masculine card.
Up close you will notice the 7/16″ Trim, a burlap inspired ribbon made of flax and cotton. I love the earthiness of this ribbon, don’t you?! I just took a piece of it and folded it in half, tied some linen thread around it and attached with glue dots. (You don’t want your embellishments falling off your card, right?!)
Colors used were, Early Espresso, Baked Brown Sugar, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla.
Look for the hostess code when placing your order for the month of August. You can find it to the right under hostess code. Be sure to use by the 28th of each month for the chance to earn hostess benefits!
