Hannah Saturday and some pictures

Hi All! Hope your weekend is going fantastic. Its a beautiful sunny day here and I have had lots of stamping time. I did some coloring and managed to finish a few cards. So this is one of the ones I finished and it features the adorable Riley Moose from Hannah Stamps. I think he is so adorable. I combined him with another of Julee's Mojo challenges. This one was from a few weeks back. Again I enjoyed it immensely. (Thanks Julee!) Card stock used in Stampin Up Soft Sky, Kraft, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, and Chocolate Chip. The patterned paper is from Scenic Route. The sentiment is from MFT''s "Let's Hear it For the Boys". Accessories are SU punches, Copics, spica pens, Imaginisce brad, and grosgrain ribbon. Make sure to check back tomorrow for a cupcake card using Taylor's challenge.

I also wanted to share some pictures I took of some bees pollinating my orange tree. The blooms are so fragrant! Another tidbit about my oranges is that they were featured on the Martha Stewart show. I wrote her an email (I know I have nothing better to do) asking her about some recipes to use with my oranges and was actual answered back with a request to be one of her view mail guest. I was so EXCITED since I am a HUGE Martha fan! So the day of my show I got to talk to Martha and she asked me "How do you fertilize your tree to get such delicious oranges?" My answer was "Nothing, the tree just grows these amazing APPLES!" Yes I said apples instead of oranges on national TV with my idol on the other line. I am such a dork but we laughed it off and I got a free knife from her.
Have a great weekend.
