Today has been a super busy day for me. I've finally finished up my canning for this year. My husband and I canned tomatoes, and peppers & onions. I also did a case of canned tomatoes for my brother in law. My husband said we should can more things, but sometimes I think it's just not worth all the work when some items I can buy cheap enough in the grocery store. I'm glad that I've finished canning and that my kitchen is back to normal.

This is my card for yesterday's color challenge. The colors for the challenge were Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, and Black. Well, as soon as I saw the colors for the day it made me think of my DD Grapes stamp set. This was one of the very first stamp sets that I purchased.

I stamped the grapes using Elegant Eggplant, the ivy using Old Olive, and for the black I ended up using the splatter stamp from SU's Itty Bitty Backgrounds and I stamped over the entire panel using black Stazon ink. I had a hard time trying to incorporate the black into my card, so I decided to just add a small piece of black card stock using my Martha Steward lace punch.

The sentiment is from SU's Small Script stamp set and my ribbon is from Offray! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
