Just sharing

I have to share this little find I had yesterday.... For a while now I had been missing eggs in the nest and I just thought one of  the three wasn't laying because of the heat. When I returned home from work I saw a chicken walk into the raspberry bush behind the Chicken Coop and I thought she was just escaping the extreme warm weather until I looked what she was doing and this is what I saw:

There were 17 eggs in the nest! Because this one was full, I discovered another nest a little bit further on that had another two eggs in it. They were all eatable because if an egg sinks in water and lays on it's side, it's o.k. to eat. If an egg stands upright in water it is o.k. but a bit old. If an egg floats it is stale and cannot be eaten. Another trick is to hold three eggs in your hand, one on top of the other, if the middle one rotates, it's fresh!

Just a day earlier I had another surprise, my hybiscus was flowering with seven beautiful flowers!  I felt so blessed.

OK onto a card, this Penny Black Blossom stamp was stamped and embossed in gold on vellum, cut out and adhered to a corner of a card. Sentiment is Hero Arts.

This card was posted on my Grid-card blog but I thought it would be nice to share here as well. It was a lot of work and took two days to finish. I used a Hero Arts scrapbook stamp, featured below:

And to finish a collage of some family photos having fun in this beautiful summer.

Signing off for now - enjoy your day and the rest of the summer!
