Ginny of WOYWW over at Maxam Made.
Some weeks back on WOYWW she had a competition to guess who Ping the duck was, and what he had trouble doing, as it was favourite children's book I guessed correctly along with few others ..
..and lo! here is one hugely juicy prize for me all the way for the US of A! and the lovely Ping the duck card to boot!
Woohoo!! thanks Ginny ..these are some of the ultra super-uber, wonderful Strathmore cardstock she has for sale over here, (bargain prices + free post in USA, folks!!) so very kind of her to send them to me ~ thanks mate!
Here is a card posted to UK a few weeks back now.
As Ryn's Droplet stamp was gift from Di at Snippet's challenge, I made the first card with it for her. It was stamped on vellum and coloured on the back with Promarkers.
I cut the Cuttlebug Olivia alphabet "thanks" on an angle on base card, without going through the bottom part of letters with die which was tricky.
Was so pleased when it worked, then discovered it did not stand out enough anyway :(
Had to overlay with black, so blue "thanks"was now just a shadow. Cut frame with Spellbinders Rectangles.
Another great card with same stamp is here - made by Sandra from "Stamping with Pleasure" and some more Droplet cards over at Di of Pixie's Crafty Workshop and Snippets fame ~ over here:
If you want lots of big fruit - prune your tree to about five foot, as that is how big our ten year old tree is! Also easier for pest control without spraying. It is always loaded with thin skinned, juicy fruit ("Eureka" variety lemon, it fruits most of year). The biggest lemons have been up to 500grams or half a kilo.
And for those of you wondering about our "homegrown-in-backyard" pineapple?
Well, link here (or scroll below) to the photos on post from yesterday, with all the details! from start to end..
