Crafty Gathering and Blackberries from my yard

Saturday afternoon I attended my first ever Card and Crafting group at the library with some wonderful and talented ladies. We had such a wonderful time together and with all our chatter and crafting the time just slipped away. Here are the cards that I received in the little swap that we did...
Such beautiful cards! The ladies enjoyed  the paper bag cards that I made as well.

The organizer of the group showed us how to make these wonderful envelope mini's. I still have more work to do on mine but here it is so far...

Once I get it completed I will share a few more photos as there are tags that slide in and out of the envelopes  (thats the brown sticking out on the right) and I still need to decorate them and cut a finger slot in the ends of the envelopes so you can pull them out more easily.

Then last night I picked the first blackberries from our little patch in our front yard and Scott and I shared them as a lovely snack. It won't be long until we go on our roadside adventure to pick blackberries. YUM!

Today was day one of Inventory and I was SO glad to get in the car and come home. Ate lunch and took a lovely nap. There was quite the storm going on when I woke up.

  2. That sounds like the perfect group for you to be a part of! Nice cards all around. Those blackberries look amazing. We're eating lots of strawberries ourselves. Ah, rain. We've been getting quite a bit it seems for us and everything is so green.
