Farmer Consumer Awareness Day

For the last 20 years we have had a Saturday set aside to help educate the consumer about Agriculture and where their food comes from and how it is grown and processed  and shipped to the market.  It has grown and includes different vendors who really don't have anything to do with agriculture, but have things that are interesting to the public.  This is where I come in as I had a booth there this year, (actually second year) and I mainly displayed things I did at Convention and some of my swap cards.  I gave away almost two boxes of catalogs (not any of the Spanish ones though, sad) and I made several items that I gave away with my business card on them.  One was a cute folder that had a Dumdum sucker in it with a heart punched out of DSP on the front and the modern label punch image punched and stamped with "Kindness Matters" from the set Kindness Matters. I got it at convention from Melanie Hendricksen - Virginia Beach, VA  It is very cute.  And the other one was a magnet calendar I made from the long skinny tag on the Bigz Two Tags Die.  Unfortunately, my camera is having issues and I can't download the pictures!! Grrr!  So I will have to show you some more pictures of cards from convention.  Which isn't a bad thing, but not what I had planned.

 This one is special because of the way it was cut.  You folded the cs and then ran it through the big shot with the labels collection framelits.  It uses the set, Summer Silhouettes.  CS looks like Midnight Muse, Marina Mist and Whisper White. DSP is the Polka Dot Parade. And the ribbon is Midnight Muse. Not sure who made it, I didn't get that information. Sorry.

I love white on white cards!!!  I did one before and just love the elegant look!  This was one of the cards up on the boards at convention.  There were about three rows of about 10 boards with 20 or more cards on them! Talk about overload!  You had to go down one side, taking pics of the ones you REALLY liked, then stop and do something else for awhile, then come back and go down another side.  It was too much to try to do it all in one round! Anyway, they just had the cards, no names or anything. 
CS is Whisper White(obviously!) Uses the square lattice, framed tulips, vintage wallpaper, and adorning accents embossing folders. 
Punches - Boho Blossoms
Stamp set - Pursuit of Happiness
Accessories - Pearls, Labels Collection framelits, pink and green markers (not sure what colors) Also a flower stamp I can't identify right now.

 And I had to add a Halloween card as people are leaning that way right now.  Well, it is next month!  This was so cute!  The headstones are punched with the oval punch, the big one, I think, and the creatures are done with the Owl punch!  So Cute!  And it's a Pop-Up!



Anyway, hope everyone has been checking out the Treasure Hunt we are having.  I have a listing of all the blogs you can check out for cool cards and ideas, and a list of the ones participating in the Treasure Hunt.  All you need are 50 clues and right now there are 54 participating blogs.  Should be easy...and fun!!  So give it a shot.  You could win $150 in StampinUp! Stuff!!!  Whoohoo!

       And there is special going on right now.  When you order $40 of StampinUp! merchandise, you get a FREE Spool of  the NEW In-Color Ribbon!!  They are SOO pretty! 

      That's all for now.  Here's hoping I can get my camera fixed soon! Until then, have fun with the Treasure Hunt!
