Green Veggies

I know a few people who when they were little wouldn't eat their green vegetables. :) (My DH included)

I created this card for a family friend who needs a little encouragement right now. Every time I see him we talk about his garden.  He is a fantastic gardener and that inspired me to pull out some of my papers for the garden.

I decided to create a card that meets the City Crafter Challenge and the Hero Arts food challenge and is (I hope) a perfect card for our friend.



The papers are from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety 6 x 6 paper.  The background to the veggies is from October Afternoon Farm Fresh.  The images are from a cute set from Hero Arts called Kiss the Cook.

I am working on a few projects for Monday. I will be sharing on my blog some projects using the new Memory Box stamps from the What's in the Box Release. I will be sharing the same projects on Monday on the Outside the Box blog.  All week long the Outside the Box blog is having a blitz of projects from the design team with opportunities to win the stamps being featured.

There is still time to play along with us at the PDCC! The colors are pink, white and red!

Have a lovely Saturday!
