Good Morning to all of my friends and family!  I want to shout out some appreciation for all of your lovely comments!  They have made me feel that my efforts here are very inspirational.  I love knowing that I can bring a smile to so many people!  I appreciate ever last one of you more than you'll ever know!

Sentimental Sundays is Challenging us to make a card or project using something in our Gardens + Sentiment!  Sounds really simple!!  Then you actually have to think about your garden and what is in it!  Not a lot of my generation even plants a garden!  However, I never go through a summer without my favorite Herbs!   I dry them out and store them for all year but to use for this project, I wanted the labels and pics from the labels so I used store bought herbs.  I used some 3L envelopes, labels from store bought herb jars, and illustrated again just how easy this was.  You'll notice a still inky thumb too, the last project was really fun to do... but that stuff just won't come off! lol

Our Sponsor this week is Raindrop Echo Designs and on August 7th, some of the Design Team has decided to participate in a wonderful project to assist a family through a very difficult time.  There have been some digital stamp images, that will help fund this charitable endeavor, available for purchase from Raindrop Echo!  If you can, and would like to, participate with either a donation or the purchase of these images please check out the information below.  We appreciate all of you support, and invite you to spread the word regarding this charitable project.
