Summer seems to be beginning to wind down some. Mornings are just a bit crisper and it is taking a while longer for the heat to appear each day. The garden is producing it's fruits, I get to harvest a bit of produce nearly every day. Just sent a bag of cucumbers to my daughter so she can make another batch of pickles. I've already pickled enough for my little family for the entire winter. Just love to preserve the harvest in this manner. Glad I learned to can.
It's been a challenge finding moments to work on paper crafts this month but I have slipped in some sessions here and there. The cards I'm displaying today are my attempts to come up with some masculine feeling cards. I started with a Darice embossing folder with "Gears" as a background on a bronze shimmer paper. The embellishments were from Anna Griffin; leftovers from a kit I purchased a few years ago. Both were quick and easy and came together nicely. I will probably send them out as birthday cards - no inside sentiments yet.
