Zinnias, Corn, and Card

My weekly trip to the Farmer's Market! What a delicious way to start a weekend. Gotta go EARLY to get the 'good stuff'! Here is a peek at some of the goods...I didn't photograph the cucumbers, zucchini, or lettuce - trust me it is a beautiful thing!

Corn from Farmer Brown (no...really...that is his name!)
Him: What's for dinner?
Me: Corn
Him: But what's for dinner?
Me: Corn
Him: Corn and....?
Me: ....more corn!

One bottle of Geisenheim from local vineyard Calico Skies, Inwood, IA. I'm working on filling my punch card over the course of the Farmer Market days! (A gal's gotta have a goal!) And one weekly bouquet - ready to go to my office - from Grandma's Garden in Salix, IA. I love my weekly office bouquet! Zinnias are my favorite flowers.

Now on to the card. Note to self - look for GOOD black and white design paper. The stuff I have is so weak! It is NOT a saturated black - I don't like it - but it is all I had. I will have to check it out at Hobby Lobby or Archivers. Suggestions anyone?

  1. Awww gorgeous card x

  2. Could just eat some buttery corn now,looks delicious! Know what you mean about the black papers, if they're going to be black, they need to be strong lol, I've some washed out ones too,it's hard to make them look appealing, something you don't seem to have had trouble with! Xxx

  3. Yes, Iowa corn is all I need for supper too ... love your pop of neon.

  4. Great take on the sketch - I hope you'll link up at 52 Card Pickup again this week!
