The Weeds Have Taken Over!

I don't know about where you are, but here in NC, it's H-O-T!!
We've been on or near the 100 degree mark all week and this week, it's not expected to let up at all!
As of 9:00 this morning, it's already 90!
My poor garden!
I tried to get out early to pull weeks and prune the roses but standing in that sun is just unbearable!
The weeds have started to take over and what normally looks like a pretty place has turned into a wild, out of control jungle!

ENTER Gardening Granny!


Looks like she's been very busy harvesting her veggies! My garden sure could use her help!

Heather sent this image to me early last week and as soon as I saw it, I printed and colored and got to work!
I emailed her a copy and she moved up the release date so I could share her with all of you!!
She is colored with Prismacolor pencils, the background is from September Scenes Stand-up Cards and the grass in front is from Easter Morning Egg Hunt.

For all those out there still using a Cricut with SCAL or MTC, I have installed the new MTC update and ran a test cut. The first time thru, I had an issue that I posted at the MTC Forum and within minutes, the solution was posted! Make sure when you click "Cut", when the "Go" dropdown box pops up, you choose the option that says something about "USB"... the COM3 modem connection won't work and won't recognize your Cricut! Once I made that small change, it worked perfectly!!

The new updates Andy has added are pretty cool... my favorite being the ability to log in to my Lettering Delights account and view all my purchased collections and import them instantaneously!

I can't wait til Tuesday, when I can post pictures of my newest Cricut creation!! it is quite possibly to cutest thing evah!

A few important, last minute reminders:

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you're off to a great week!
I would like to enter Granny into the Craft Your Days Away Summertime Challenge.

The fence and grass and plants growing in the background are SO fun! I love your coloring and shading.

I agree, weeds or drought or something has killed mine. I have been keeping my garden weed free. My yard is covered... but my veggies still died. All of them. Nothing I could do. I tried it all :( WaHH!!! I have Granny's garden to tend to now... Gardening Granny that is. At least we KNOW her veggie basket will ALWAYs be full and fresh and free of bugs or rotten spots :D hehehe!!!

Sending hugs and smiles. Can't wait to see your cutest evah cricut creation :D

Hugs, Sheryl
