Wednesday, August 14, 2013 set of the month and more bumming

The more I use this set, the better I like it! 
This is one of the cards I have prepared for the people that purchase this set from me this month. 
You could make it free at the next Stamp Along if you purchase the set (p69 in the big catalog) before the end of August. 

***   My stamp set of the month.
Buy Wetlands 126697 (clear-$16.95) or 126695 (wood-$21.95) 
and receive three cards free at the next Stamp Along for ideas to use the set.
If you can't make it to the Stamp Along, I will include two cards using the set with your order. If you order online and have it sent directly to you, I will send you the two cards. 
Yes! You get an extra card if you come to the Stamp Along because you will make them yourself. If I have to make the cards, you only get two. It is still a great deal!

I used the new Sweater Weather DSP and the Burlap Ribbon.
Both great products! 
I used the aqua painter and added those bits of color. 

Here is another great offer for August:

Now, on to the bumming.  

A week ago (plus a few days) a friend and I went north to pick cherries. 
We met my daughter and her husband there and picked lots of the delicious little red things. 
It was a beautiful day for picking as it was cloudy and not too hot. 
It was so much fun because of the company! 
When we were finished we stopped for lunch which was also enjoyable. 

After we "parted ways" with my daughter and husband, Linda and I stopped at a neat shop called 
The Flying Pig. 
It is a unique shop with unique products!

This is the site that greets you when you drive into the parking lot. 

This is along the walk to the pond. In the background is an area for the kids to play. 
The critter on the stone is one of the many unique pieces of art. 

This is indoors, looking down from the balcony. The tree is applied (not sure of the medium) on the wall. Some people are so creative with the way they use junk to create new products.
There was jewelry made with old watch parts and sewing things like safety pins and bobbins.

The incredible things that some people do with cans and cups! 
Even the shelves are creative! 

This delightful critter was out side along the path. 

It was a wonderful day! 

Thanks for the visit!


  1. Great card, Carolee, your water coloring is wonderful.

    The Flying Pig is always such a fun place to visit and how I wish my backyard looked like theirs.

    Oh, how cute is that frog?! I just love it.

    1. Some day we should go there and oh and ah together!

  2. Love the burlap bow! What a great idea! The Flying Pig looks like a fun place to visit!

    1. I have been seeing that burlap used a lot. I love the look. That is a flat piece pulled together in the middle with twine.

  3. Love to sponge my cards.

    1. Sponging is so quick and easy, too!

  4. Not gonna lie...just commenting to be entered for blog candy!!
