3 Clovers Thursday Challenge #25-Summer Bounty


The challenge this week on 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge is Super Summery! Make a great "summery" card!

I thought to myself...nothing reminds me more of summer than all the bountiful fruits and veggies growing in everyone's garden!

I used to can all sorts of fruits, veggies, beans etc when my children lived at home. I don't can anymore...except a batch of apricot pineapple jam here and there. I miss that yummy bounty!

On to the details of this super summery card:

I changed the layout of this darn card so many times and really thought about just throwing it out, but in the end...I think I like it...I really like it :-)

This is meant to look like an old time kitchen shelf full of freshly canned goodies. This kitchen wall has the old time flowery wallpaper, ruby red wainscoating and white beadboard on the bottom(made with my scorepal). I think you can see better detail by clicking on the card to enlarge.

I am glad I didn't give up on this card...I think it will be a favorite!

I hope you can join Kerry and all of her team in making this a fun challenge!

I have the same memories about my summer in Russia. Time when my mom was making jams and juices for winter during the summer! Thank you for brinning me back to my best moments of the life...

I am so glad that you didn't give up on this card and I am sure you are too! It is really a blue ribbon for all the lovely canned goods displayed so beautifully. I never canned much but I remember it was an important part of my mother's life when we lived on a farm. What fun to visit the basement in the wintertime and see all the wonderful bounty from the summer!
