Harvest Time and You Can Win Also!



A while back Krista Smith asked her followers (Yes! I follow!) to send her ideas for new stamps. If she chose your idea you would get the stamp for free. I am happy to tell you that little ole me won! This is my fabulous stamp! Isn't she just the cutest! I grew up in Emmett, Idaho. Our valley was (now it is houses) lined with orchards of all kinds. Apples, cherries, peaches, prunes, plums and pears to name a few. My mom started taking me and my brothers out to the orchards to work at an early age. As I grew older there was a wonderful man named Ed Harpt that would hire me the day after school let out, until the day before school started to work in his orchards. I thinned apples and peaches, picked all of the above mentioned fruit. It was hard work but it was a great way to earn money for school clothes and books, plus you went back to school with a great tan. LOL! I told Krista that I would like a stamp of this time in my life. This is the lovely stamp she sent me. I can tell you that I NEVER looked this good working in the orchards, but I love this stamp. Now, for the really great news Krista is giving a free stamp to one commenter on each blog in this hop. My randomizer has already pick my number for me (that would be my dh) I will tell you who the winner is tomorrow! Be sure and go to http://saturatedcanarychallenge.blogspot.com/ to get a list of all those participating in the bog hop! And then hop on over to http://www.etsy.com/shop/SaturatedCanaryDigis?page=1 to buy some of Krista's fabulous images!
