A Touch of Flavor

Again, the weekend dissolves quicker than a popsicle on a blistering hot summer day. Why is that!? Yesterday included a trip to Omaha for hair cut. And I mean hair CUT! I got my hair cut short enough FOR a blistering hot summer day. I haven't had SHORT hair in years! This is going to take some getting used to... Also had dinner with Omaha sista which included Bloody Marys AND sweet potato fries - YUM!!!!

Today we went to Junkstock. We attempted yesterday - but the line of cars to get in was backed up for MILES. I voted NO! They estimate there were 10,000 in attendance yesterday! YIKES! So we went today. Still plenty of junk to be had! I love to see not only the creative re-purposing but the vintage items, and the displays. It is a day of creative overload always topped off with kettlecorn!

 Actual doors at the entrance! So many details!

Who doesn't love pom-pom garland!?

Cute display or what!!!???

Now...on to the card. I may have done a little 'fudging'.... I can't believe in my vast collection of stamps I don't have a pineapple! I have vegies galore! I have strawberries, grapes, apples...but alas no pineapple. So I used "pineapple flavoring" when I created this cupcake! No - REALLY!!! Okay so disqualify me. I had fun coming up with a 'work-around'! And isn't that what card challenges should be: fun and CHALLENGIING!?
