Tasteful Backgrounds

The SU retiring list has now been published and some of
my favorite products are retiring.  The Tasteful Backgrounds,
on page 196, gives so many options for classy cards.  It's 
hard to tell the colors used from this pictures.  They are 
In Colors Lovely Lipstick and Rococo Rose.  I cut out the die
twice, so that I could inlay the Rose color.   I also love the
Copper Trim on page 174.

I needed to include this photo from my little orchard.
I have a number of smaller fruit trees, including a 12 foot peach,
two 5 foot cherries and two little 5 foot apples trees.  They are
small, but mighty, as all of the little trees bear fruit each year.
Last year, when my Mom was here, I had about 80 peaches,
which I piled in front of her.  She loves peaches.
The peach and cherry trees are already done blooming, so
I had to take some pics of my apple blossoms.   I enjoy
looking out my kitchen window, to see spring literally in bloom.

Wow. I would love to have some fruit trees. 80 peaches is a lot of peaches! I love the copper trim on this card. It is a nice pop of shine! said...

Beautiful card, Jackie! I love how you inlaid the Rococo Rose pieces, and the copper trim was one of my favorites. Your apple blossoms are gorgeous! We had an apple tree in our backyard when we moved in. Then fruit appeared and we discovered it was actually a pear tree. (My brothers had a very good laugh at my expense for that one.)
