Hello Peddler's Pack Fans!

I hope you are enjoying your summer and finding ways to keep cool!   I find that being semi-retired, it's hard to keep the days straight!  And there's just not enough hours in the day to accomplish all that I want to do!  

We attended a surprise 40th Birthday party for our very good friend Dave who owns The Fireside Bar & Grill and The Westgate Restaurant in Beaverton. A gala event in the Roaring 20's style.  Everyone dressed for the occasion and it was such fun!  Pictured below is Bernie and me  in our attire. The venue was at the Heart of Rock Farm in Sherwood which offers a unique collection of wedding and event-related services.

The kit includes the leaf and scarecrow stamps mounted on cling foam, card stock for four cards, ribbon, metal nail heads, pumpkins die cut, envelopes and envelope seals.  T…
