Cards and Chores

Somehow the weekends slip by and I don't even get close to finishing the "to do" list.

We spent the morning in the garden picking produce including beans, zucchini, peppers, cucumbers chard, berries, tomatoes and peaches, and stopping to visit with family for a few minutes before heading home.  We shall eat like kings tomorrow as we enjoy the fresh vegetables from the garden.  It sure cuts down on the grocery bill.

I ran a few errands in the afternoon, Ralph made raspberry/blackberry freezer jam with a few fresh berries from the garden and leftover berries from last year that we had in the freezer.
We had a late lunch and took a few minutes to stretch out and take a break. 
From Millan.Net
So with the time left in the early evening, instead of doing homework I decided I wanted to make a couple of cards.

The card is made using the sunburst technique.  Strips of printed paper and solid paper are cut into 4-1/4 x 1-1/2 inch strips and then cut in half from opposite corners
Here is a link I found on Pinterest to learn the  Sunburst Technique   I am sure that different widths could be used to add variety and interest to the card. 
This card uses Birthday basics designer paper with coordinating card stock which embossed with a polka dot EF.  The stamp is from sketched Birthdays heat embossed.

Here is another one done with the same DSP and different solid colors. 

The dogs are exhausted from running around with Snoopy and Enzo, so it makes for a quiet afternoon as they sleep the tiredness off.  The walkFrom Millan.Net tonight before bed will not have to be a vigorous one.  Thanks goodness because I am tired too.

Ta Ta for now
