Superlative Seeds of the Realm....and a Christmas card with no challenge to land in....

Hello Friends,
My son is off with his college-age cousin and friends today at a fun event called Live Action Role Playing at a park near our home.  The theme this year is Pirates.  Here is a picture of them posing in full costume before they left:
 The bad thing is that it is 97 degrees here today....a very hot one for us cool-weather loving Seattle-ites. It may hamper some of the playing!  Or at least some of the costume wearing!  Wow! It is HOT!!!!!  The driest and hottest summer I have ever experienced here! 

Anyway...I am taking advantage of a little Mommy free time to make a few cards in my nice and cool basement today.      I have two cards to share with you...

This first card uses a stamp set from Waltzingmouse called Vintage Garden Seed Packet and is a sweet little note card that can be used for anything.  The paper is from Iralamija Shop on ETSY.
And next I have a little Christmas is a case of a card I made last year that I really liked and came together quickly:

The tree is from a set called Trim the Tree at Paper Sweeties.  The senitment is from the Let it Snow stamp set. 

Thanks for taking a peek at my cards.  I hope you are enjoy your Sunday!

  1. I'll bet Tim had a grand time not matter how hot it was!! Pretty cards today Jill. Did making a Christmas card help to cool you down a bit!!

  2. Oh my....I love your photo of Tim and friends, it looks like they are having an amazing time! Both of your card are so sweet. I really love your first one with that seed packet, just beautiful. Hoping you are in for some cooler weather soon!

  3. Ha! you hare having a bit of Florida weather up there, Jill. Hope it cools down enough for some pirate fun :-) Cute photo of Tim and mateys!

  4. Tim is obviously enjoying the fun. The last three days have been scorchers here as well. Yesterday and today were above 90 and high humidity. Spent 5-6 hours doing yard work in it yesterday and slept 10 hours last night. Very draining.

    Love the cards. Both cards are great but the first one is my favorite.

    Stay cool my dear.

    Love, Hugs and Blessings
