Zucchini, Corn, Cucumbers, and a CARD!

Hello and Happy Thursday everyone! I have lots
of pictures to show you today! :o)
I told you about my wonderful neighbor.... Dave the Corn man (As we call him)! He was kind enough to bring me some Corn, Cucumbers and a HUGE Zucchini for my family to enjoy..... Well I thought the zucchini would be great for a casserole I like to make so of course I said yes to bringing one over... I had NOOOO Clue it was gonna be sooo big! I didn't know what to do with it at first.... then I thought Zucchini Bread... Why Not? Sooo I'm planning on going away for a family reunion and this week has been very busy even today is busy... Soooo I spent the ENTIRE day Yesterday baking Bread, bread, and more Bread! I Made 18 loaves of Zucchini bread with this 1 gigantic Zucchini.... And YES that is a lot of bread!!! Soooo we ate the first loaf and I wrapped the second loaf up for my wonderful neighbor who brought it over to me..... and well the rest.... They are all going with me to this Family reunion..... It's a good thing I have an SUV! LOL Soooo here are the pictures of the Veggies he brought me..... and further down from that will be today's Halloween card that I made! :o)

Here is the Corn before I took the Husks off....

Here is the corn after words.... YUMMY!!!
I had to toss out 2 of the corns cause the worms ate through them pretty bad...

Here are the (2) Cucumbers he gave us....
I gave one to my mom... she loves cucumbers!


This may not look big in this picture....
But trust me when I say it was....
Think about it... 18 loaves of bread was made with this sucker! :o)

OK... Here are 10 of the loaves.... (2) are in the oven at this time and we at (1) and gave one to Dave the Corn man! I still had (4) loaves to go and this picture was taken at 8:15pm last night! I started baking at 10AM and I finished after 11PM... I told ya I would be busy! LOL
They are real tasty though.... They taste more like a cake than a bread... It will be a LOOONNNGGG Time before I want to make this bread again!
On with the card!!!!!

Here is my Card for today!!!! Finally!!!
Thanks for reading this far! :o)
This card was made with (3) cartridges...
All Card stock and Ink (Stampin' Up)
Designer Paper (K&Co)
(Happy Haunting) cut @ 1 1/4" from the Happy Hauntings Cartridge Pg.46
(All of the colored circles) cut @ 1 1/4" from George & Basic Shapes
(9 Spooky Characters) cut @ 1 1/4" from the Pumpkin Carving Seasonal Cartridge
NOTE: ALL 9 Characters were cut out with Core'dinations Black Magic CS

And of course a side view.... To show the Dimensionals that I used.....
I was going to cut them out (2x's each) but they are soooo small and they were hard to cut
at that size, that I thought I better just stick to (1 cut) :o)
Well as I said... I have a very busy day ahead of me,
laundry, packing and such.... I will be gone all weekend and
I should have a Fall card posted on Monday for ya..... It's a pre-post....
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!!

  1. Beautiful corn!! Great cucumbers and that zucchini is big!! Eighteen loaves of bread! WOW!!! You have been busy. How in the world did you get a card made?! Looove the card! The hand in the middle looks like it is saying, 'Hey, look here at me in the middle!' Have a wonderful weekend at the reunion. Ours is the next weekend. Can't hardly wait. We didn't have one the past 2 yrs. Be safe and careful!!! :)
