Hello everyone!!! Hope you are having a fun weekend!!! The Hubs and I have been canning....we canned 13 quarts of hamburger soup yesterday!!! You should have seen my kitchen...it too an hour to clean up all the mess!!! We are still new to canning and with the first batch the pressure canner started doing weird things so I ran next door to get some help from my neighbor. They have been canning for 30 years so they have lots of helpful hints that you can't find in a book!!! Apparently, we had the heat up too high...once we fixed that problem, everything went smoothly. We need to can some more tomatoes tomorrow because they are coming out of our ears!!! I will add some onions, green peppers, and celery to make my own stewed tomatoes...they are so good in soups!! Anyway..
I had some time to play a little with my new Reverse Confetti Stamps...I bought the new Fabulous Flamingo set last week and I just love the sweet little flamingos!!! The first time I stamped the legs, they were backwards...it took me a minute to figure that out...LOL!!! I used Jen's SFYTT #15 for the sketch and papers from Doodlebugs Sugar Shoppe 6x6 paper pad. The birds were cutout with the coordinating die...the wings were embossed with the Dotted Swiss folder and the pearls for eyes, sewing, and ribbon finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!
