Simply Well-Preserved ...

Pin It

TGIF hoarding card-makers and welcome to the weekend! And, since it's finally another Friday, it's time for another "Stamp Simply" challenge!

This week, Sharon asks us, "is anyone out there still canning, or freezing, or drying your summer harvest? Is anyone preparing those previously preserved goodies for Thanksgiving or Christmas gifts? Today is all about preserving our fruits of the harvest. Take this food-related theme wherever it brings you ... use food stamps, papers, or embellishments on a card, decorate a jar of canned goodies, or even wrap and decorate a chocolate bar ... we're easy! Let's just see some lovely fruits, veggies, or any type of edible in today's creations!

I have a wonderful old wood-mounted cornucopia stamp that I only get to use at this time of year. It's beautifully detailed and so much fun to color:

To play along in this week's challenge ... and we hope you do! ... simply create a paper project featuring fruits, vegetables, or any type of edible. Then, upload your project to your blog or online photo gallery and visit Sharon's blog, located HERE and link your project up to Mr. Linky, located HERE.

When uploading to an online gallery, such as Splitcoast Stampers, SNR, or Paper Craft Planet, please use keyword: "ssnotime166" so that we can find your project.

Hi Deb! Your cornucopia is outstanding! I love how you've colored it - and I love your card!

I'm missing you. I can see that you've been busy creating beautiful albums (I have been drooling - good thing it's e-drooling so the ink doesn't run!).

HUGS dear friend.
