Warmest Birthday Wishes…

30 Nov

Good Morning!  It feels like forever since I have made a blog post!  Its been another busy week for me, both at work and at home.  My husband is still not feeling well and my son also had a major mishap that required some time in the ER so, yet again, not crafty time for me.  Tonight I am off to my work Christmas party for a little while, so that will be fun 🙂

I have a clean and simple card to share with you this morning…

And Now I notice that Word Press has made some changes to the formatting of blog posts.  Hmmmm… I really do not have time this morning to figure this out! LOL!!!

This post is going to look a little wonky I am afraid but that can’t be helped.  Please bear with me while I figure out the new changes! LOL!

My Happy Fur Babies….

Happy Sunday All!  My crafty mojo has been on vacation this past week and I haven’t been in my craft room in ages!  I decided to get busy in the kitchen today making some of Sasha and Lacy’s favorite treats!

These are Peanut Butter Carob chip bones…. I am not one to follow a recipe…. I usually just throw what ever I think will work into my kitchen aid and let the chips fall as they may LOL!!  But here is the approximate recipe for these…

2 Cups of whole wheat flour

1/2 cup of rice crispy cereal

1 cup of rolled oats

1 egg

about 1/4 cut of peanut butter

about 1/4 cup of water (or what ever is needed to bind the dough)

a couple of hand fulls of carob chips

I rolled out the dough and used a bone shaped cookie cutter and baked them at 350 for about 20 minutes.  They are sitting out on the counter for a few hours before I package them up so they get nice and hard.  The dogs go crazy for them!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday!

All I have to say is…. TGIF!  Whoa it has been a busy week for me.  I haven’t spent ANY time this week in my craft room, it’s just been work work work!  I am really looking forward to kicking back for two days and relaxing!  I have a simple little all occasion card to share with you that I made last week….

This is a really quick post as I am busy getting ready for work.  Don’t you just love the hand made flower that the lovely and talented Ms. Lauren showed me how to make?  Check out her blog… she has a lovely tutorial on there to show you how to make these.  These are my favorite flowers to make, so quick and easy!!!

I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Good Morning!  I haven’t been doing much crafting lately… I have been busy with other things but I am sure I will get back to it soon enough.  I have a Christmas card to share with you this morning.  It is simple but quite pretty and another easy to mail pintrest inspired creation….

I love the deep red and bright white together, it looks very pretty and I am afraid the picture doesn’t do it justice.  Oh well  🙂

This is a quick post as I am off to work again today!

I hope everyone has a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas….

Good Morning!  I have another Christmas card to share with you this morning.  This one was really easy to put together and it turned out so nice!  I used bright white embossing power and heat set the snowflakes onto white card stock to my my own design paper.  I used faded jeans distress ink over the whole front panel and then stamped the flourish from the Elements of Style stamp set. I love how these turned out, I also love making fancy fold cards 🙂

For some reason, when I think about making Christmas cards… I mostly want to do blue ones?  I really need to work on some other colors as well.  Oh well, I’m sure I will figure out something to do with red and green.

Tonight is going to be a fun night at The Cutting Garden… It’s shop and crop night so I get to hang out with all the crafty ladies and rubberneck on what they are creating!  Gotta Love It!!! 😀

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Hello Again, Yes this is my second post of the day.  In truth, I have a line up of about 20 different cards to post but I have been a lazy blogger LOL!!!  I am aways trying to come up with something different… it’s not always easy for me I’m afraid.  I have a ton of velum (is that spelled right?)  *shrug* anyway… My friend Karyn gave me a bunch of left over velum she had from her wedding invitations and I thought I would put some of it to good use….

I heat embossed the scenery using gold embossing powder on the velum which I made into a pocket on the front of the card.  I made an insert that slides down behind the velum.  Easy enough right?  It turned out quite pretty and it is a good switch up from a regular tent card.

I hope you like it, I think I will make a few more of them… it was a fun project.

Thanks so much for your visit!!

Birthday Wishes….
