I am TOTALLY throwing these Tomatoes at you!

Just say'n. Actually, the deal is...I have an adorable neighbor who had a wonderful garden all summer and from what I can tell, she doesn't like much of what she grows, because she kept giving it to us! HA! Fresh tomatoes, zucchini, and cucumbers! YUMMM-O! Anyway, I totally owe her a thank you card. Sooooo...it just so happened that I had some super cute puffy tomato stickers in my stash. (NOT, my friends, to be confused with {puffy heart}.) Just say'n. SOooooo....when I saw this week's Tuesday Trigger, those gingham tomatoes came to mind quicker than .... well, something that's really quick. So, my friends, here you have my take on the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger for this week.

The Trigger


And My Take on Said Trigger
Thank You


I will be honest. A piece of me wanted to embrace the random that the trigger offered, but I just couldn't do it. It hurt. So...alas, I was inspired by the fabulous colors, the ginghams and the buttons, and the string...I even hid a bit of blue behind the vintage buttons, which, I happen to love. Just say'n.

I roughed up the seafoam (which, while it doesn't appear to be in the photo, is pretty much the exact color as the background in the trigger) CTMH cardstock to give it a worn look reminiscent of gardens and such. (P.S. As I can't keep anything alive to save my life and dirt and I generally don't get along, I actually have no idea whatsoever if that last statement makes any sense, but it sure did sound good!.)
The tomatoes are Martha Stewart, the buttons are vintage, the twine is from Whisker Graphics, and the stamp is CTMH in Momento ink. As for why one would randomly have tomato stickers in one's stash when one does not, has never, and has no intention of ever gardening, well....what do you want me to tell you? I generally have no reasonable explanation for these things. Just say'n.

I hope you have had an absolutely fabulous weekend! The Hubbums is making burgers for us tonight and he has baked apples that we picked yesterday prepared for dessert! SO excited!!! I will see you all tomorrow!
