One on One Card Swap- Stampin Up Style

Here’s another post I put the pictures in during December and forgot to post.  Someone told me at BSF Leadership today they couldn’t tell I really have memory issues, I guess they don’t read my blog. 🙂  Here’s some beautiful cards exchanged in our One on One Card Swap before Christmas.

Thanks for sending me all the beautiful cards. Everyone who sent a card, got a card in exchange in the mail.  Please let me know if you would like to participate when we do another One on One card swap!

We had a teenage issue at our house today.  It started when I opened a Costco size (very large) container of fresh raspberries for breakfast.  I had an an awesome breakfast of Coconut Yogurt, almonds, frozen blueberries and delicious fresh raspberries.  I liked it so much, I thought I might have it again for lunch after BSF.  Problem was, when I got home at noon, the empty raspberry container was in the garbage.  Apparently Keegan had raspberries for breakfast as well.  All the raspberries!  I have a secret I haven’t told my kids.  I have an entire garden devoted to raspberries every summer.  I go out each morning during raspberry season and eat them all before I get back into the house.  If today is any indication, I hope Keegan never finds out about the Raspberry garden. 🙂

I ended up having delicious Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup for lunch instead.  I made it Sunday for the first time and it was super good!  Keegan got home after school famished, after having only raspberries for breakfast.  He went back for cup after cup of the soup.  Steve called at 5 to tell me he was on his way home and couldn’t wait to have some soup.  (It’s freezing in Iowa and we got several inches of snow today, so soup sounded really good!)  I told him Keegan ate ALL the soup and ALL the raspberries.  Steve told me to lock the refrigerator and keep Keegan away from it until he got home so there would be something left for him to eat.  LOL  Life with a hungry 17 year old who’s 6’3″!  Good thing we love him so much!

Hope you’re having a great week!

    I can relate to having a hungry 17 year old. I remember times when the leftover roast, planned for dinner, disappeared as an after school snack! But don’ worry about your raspberry garden–you will always be up before he is in the summer!

    Love your cards as well as the story. I love raspberries and blackberries. They are my favorite fruits. I am glad you shared the cards now as I had wanted to make the wreath one and sort of ran out of time. Now, I have plenty of time to perfect it before the holidays! All the cards are great! Thanks for sharing. Did Keegan have any tummy woes eating all the raspberries?
