A Couple of New Cards...

I made this card up for my brother-in-law's Birthday. I used the new Bo-Bunny Timepiece collection, the papers, stamps and pearls. I also used scrapper's floss and a button from my stash.

I also made up this card for one of hubby's customers. She recently lost her sister and then just a few weeks later the daughter of her sister. Been a rough year for her, so far.

For this card I used the new Bo-Bunny set, Gabrielle... again, papers & stamps. I also used my favorite ribbon... the Crepe ribbon!
I hope you enjoy seeing my latest cards...

My Latest Tilda...

This was my Spring card for the Priceless Scrapbooks blog, in February. I enjoyed making this card, but the real icing on the cake, was that my husband saw this card and said it was "Gorgeous!" This is coming from a guy who doesn't totally see the value of my "crayons, paper and paste" hobby! LOL

We had a wonderful evening last night.  We saw the movie, Gnomeo & Juliet, then went out to dinner.  I also received these lovely flowers.

Another Shameless Post...

This is another shameless plug for Gooseberry Patch cookbooks! I found this recipe here at Delightful Country Cookin' because she is an Early Bird Reviewer for Gooseberry, so this is one of the recipes she shared. Its called Special Chicken Noodle Soup. Since I'm not overly crazy about canned soup and never seemed to be inspired to make my own... I decided to give this one a try. Since I always have chicken on hand and the days were quite chilly, I thought this was a good idea. Well, its the Best idea I've had in awhile! This soup was So Good and So Creamy! Oh, and very, very filling. It took no time at all to make, a big plus for me, as I like simple meals that look really nice. This is getting added to my Favorites and I will be sending a copy of this to my son who is addicted to soup. You will definitely want to grab this recipe and make up a potful. I will also be adding the cookbook to my library... cause I know there are other wonderful recipes to be made. I grabbed the recipes that the other reviewers shared, as well and I will print those out and choose another one to make.

Here's where you can find the cookbook for this recipe as well as many other wonderful meals, desserts and other yummy goodies. While you're there checking out this fabulous cookbook, take a look around, they have so many wonderful books and even some e-books, so you can have your recipes sooner! Just click on the photo of the cookbook to go to their website. Enjoy!

Have a Happy and Blessed Day!

I've been wanting to try my hand at Art Journaling, so I signed up for the Strathmore Workshops. This is my first lesson from the class. I will hopefully get to the second lesson by sometime tomorrow.

Thanks for looking!

Shameless Plug for Gooseberry Patch...

This was our dinner tonight... from one of my favorite Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks, Meals in Minutes. This was a Super Easy recipe with a great flavor. I added some rice and green beans for a quick and simple meal, with lot's of flavor! I know the picture is a little blurry, but we were in a hurry to eat our yummy dinner! Here is the cookbook that I used for the recipe:

I hope this will inspire others to pull our some of their favorite cookbooks and try some recipes that can become favorites for the family.

Nite All!

Last Minute Christmas Gifts...

Hello everyone! Here I am, running behind as usual :o/ These were last minute gifts for Christmas that I put together. I was not much in the Christmas Spirit this year, so just kinda waited for the Season to pass by. Not sure I'd liked it that way.

Anyway, I made these up using the 12 Days of Christmas Tutorials by Becky Roberts. I really like her projects and these were just too wonderful to pass up.

I used my Stamping Up Cardstock, DSP (Holly Jolly '09 & this year's set, don't remember the name) I think the stamp set is called Tags Til Christmas, or something like that... it was in the Christmas Mini.

I hope you like my project and would love to hear some feedback on them. Thanks for stopping by.
