July 2012 Papertrey Blog Hop

I'm in under the wire but so wanted to play with the beautiful colors in this month's July Papertrey Blog Hop.
We are to pair floral images with the beautiful colors.  I didn't have any inks other than Berry and Sorbet so I let my DP do the floral for me.

The rose silk is closer to Berry Sorbet IRL.

Stamps - Papertrey Signature Greetings II
Paper - PTI Simply Chartreuse; Graphic 45 Little Darlings
Ink - Versafine black
Other - PTI Fabulous Frames die, Filigree Border die; May Arts Rose Silk & Crochet Lace (new!); sewing machine; paper roses

WOYWW164 - Who Dunnit?

It's Wednesday...again!!  If anyone has a way to slow time down...(like to about where it was when we were 10 and it took FOREVER for any big event to arrive), I wish they'd put it in a bottle and sell it.  I'd buy the lot!

Wednesday means it's time for WOYWW164 over at Julia's Stamping Ground across the big pond.  Here's a peek at the worktable top this week...a tooth fairy box almost to completion for a customer and a mess all around that I've managed to get straightened up now.  Does anyone have a foolproof  (that would be me!) way to store unmounted rubber?  I've tried everything.  My notebook panels work until the notebook gets too thick and sometimes the stamps lose their grip and fall off.

I've been terribly amiss and keep forgetting to post these awesome ATC's (my very first) that were a RAK from Eliza of QueenartoypiaThey're just so awesomely creative!  I keep them on my desk where I see them for inspiration...maybe one of these days, I'll give it a try.

This card was a surprise RAK from Tickle a Teapotter Tuesday (SplitcoastStampers)  teapot member, scrappinmama72inpa aka EmilyThe last Tuesday of each month, the Teapotters are sent a secret member by the moderator to send that week's challenge card to.

Isn't this just too sweet?
Emily has added so many details to create a fun card that just makes me smile.

Now for my "Who Dunnit.(hee,hee...not you, Julia!)  I've been growing and nurturing some pineapple plants for 3 years...3 years!  It takes that long for the plants to mature enough to produce single beautiful, sweet pineapple.  I've been watching and waiting for the first one to ripen. Checking each day for that blush of yellow that says it's time to pick.  Here's what I found today:

I am so stinkin' MAD!!  Some critter, picked the pineapple...oh yes, took it right off the plant...tore into it and ate AROUND the core!   Unbelieveable!!!  I have one more out there which I plan to watch like a hawk. 

Our grandson suggested putting a camera in the garden...I'm thinking more like barbed wire, electrical wire, the jaws of death.....
