This past weekend we moved into our cottage. It was a beautiful but cool day and we were so happy to be here. Emma, on the other hand was not very happy. Last time we were here one of the smoke detectors was beeping and it freaked her out. When we arrived on Saturday she would not get out of the car. It is funny how dogs have this long term memory. She loved the cottage last year but there was no way she was having anything to do with it this year. We left her in the car with the doors open for at least an hour. Finally Rob had to pull her out. She was not a happy camper. Rob and I, on the other hand were ecstatic to be here. So, now you have to put up with my sunset pictures for a few months. Here is the first sunset of the year.
Now you know why we love the cottage. We get to look at this every night!
I made this “wreath” card using the stamp set Fruit Basket. It is in the 2018 Occasions Catalog and it is not being carried over. How sad. It has matching mini punches called Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack. You can save 10% by purchasing it in a Bundle until May 31st. Then both items will be gone forever.
In order for me to make this card I used my Stamparatus. This tool is amazing. You can do so much with it. Basically you stamp the first strawberry and then turn the cardstock and stamp the next one. You do this until there is a circle of strawberries. Then I did the same thing with the pear. The colors I used were Pear Pizzazz, Real Red, Crumb Cake (for the banner), Daffodil Delight (for the Pineapple) and Basic Black for the sentiment.
The Stamparatus will be in the new Annual Catalog that comes out on June 1st. You definitely need to own this. You will love it!
