For the Love of Bacon…

Hello. Sorry for the long stretch between posts. I am with Ken’s family for a week celebrating his parent’s 50th wedding anniversary in The Villages in Florida. Boy is it hot! My family is staying with Roxie back at home – she has a sprained leg. 🙁

Just popping in to share a quick card. Anyone who knows me knows I love bacon, so this stamp set from Kelly Purkey just made me swoon…

Added a bit of texture with a new fabulous embossing folder and some sparkle with a Wink of Stella marker. And that kraft piece with the white pattern? That is a piece from Kelly Purkey’s June/July kit. They are perfectly sized for cards…

Bacon is good…

See you soon!

  1. Very cute!! You’ll have to let me know if you hear Cathy Merkel-Roddy sing at The Villages. She’s my… I guess cousin-in-law and performs there regularly. Small world. 🙂

  2. Welcome to the Villages yes it is hot! Enjoy your stay, it’s a great place to,live and visit.
    Thank you for all you do to inspire me to try new techniques. I feel a little awestruck that the great Jennifer McGuire is right here in my home town. Blessings, Carolyn

  3. You know when you love bacon when your brother mails some to you for your birthday and Christmas gifts! Great card! God bless your inlaws on their 50th Wedding anniversary!

  4. Congratulations to your parents! The Villages is a wonderful place – – my folks head down there during the central-Wisconsin snow season . . . I can picture my husband and I tooling around in a golf cart down there 😀
    Love the card. Our 15 year old kitten loves bacon as well!

  5. Heehee – so cute! I love bacon too – the cuts are different here but I still eat too much – LOL! 50 years!! Congratulations to Mr and Mrs McGuire (Sr)

  6. Hi Jennifer! I love this card. I wasn’t too sure about the stamp set, when I first saw it, but you managed, yet agian…to make a stunning card. I absolutely love your creations. You have given me such inspiration. I’ve been in a serious crafty rut lately, but I’ve been going back to all your old blog posts and seeing your Gorjuss cards and I’ve actually have been spending so much time in my craft room, until late in the night! Thanks so much for your amazing, wonderful talent! Oh, and by the way, all 4 of your children are beautiful! I love when you post pic’s of them…or a tad bit of funny info! Thanks agian!
