You don't want to miss anyone's blog when there are prizes involved! :) Can you believe that the summer is coming to an end?! It's August already and it's a wonderful time of year to stop and visit the Farmer's Market! To celebrate this month, the Embellish-it Online "IT" Girls are taking you on a grand Blog Hop!

Here's our list of stops:

Hey Diddle, Diddle...
You have to Solve a Riddle...

Hop like a Frog.....
To each and every blog....

Then you can Park It...
At the Farmer's Market....

Put your answer in your post....
And the Winner we will toast!

The Riddle:

What is black, sings at night, the latest rage and ends up glued to a page??

Let's get going before the *Lemonade* is all gone!!!

***Go to our forum HERE and pick the Farmer's Market link
to post your answer to the riddle!***

Now onto my project! When I think of Farmer's Market I immediately think of fresh produce, and looking at my new Sarah Kay stamp, Elodie looks like she is watering her garden to grow some nice fresh veggies! I had this adorable mini basil starter pot kit that went along great with our Farmer's Market theme, so I took off the packaging and added some fun Cosmo Cricket paper to match the card and some sparkly American Crafts ribbon and what a beautiful gift set I had!

These Cosmo Cricket Early Bird papers are so fun and bright!
Making this card put me in a very happy mood because of all the brightness!

A close up of Elodie! Isn't she adorable?! I love this stamp!
And here's the top of the flower pot!
Now hop on over to Danni's Blog for some more Market Fun!!!
