Snow Day

Saturday, January 23, 2016

 
Hello! You've probably heard by now that the Northeast of the US is getting a big snowstorm or you're buried under it like we are!  I'm taking the opportunity to do what I love most {not including Ryan and Piper, of course ;)}
Craft and Bake!
 
 
I had some bananas that were on their way out so I decided to bake some banana bread.  Unfortunately, I realized I didn't have enough butter and running to the store was not an option.  This is why I love Pinterest!  I typed 'banana bread with oil' into the search bar and a recipe came up that used coconut oil instead of butter.  That I have!  Here is the recipe I used.  It turned out great.  I threw in some chocolate chips because......chocolate!
 
 
For my card today I incorporated three challenges {all linked below}.  I love leaves stamped in non-traditional colors.  For these I used Warm Wool, Cranberry Crush, Little Piggy, and Wild Mango.  All are WPlus9 PURE Color Dye Inks.  I stamped some of the leaves onto the card front.  Some are stamped on die cuts and tucked under the banner.  I added the little love bunnies among the leaves.
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you are warm and dry!

  3. Oh, this is so sweet, Kara! I love your wonderful take on the sketch!
    And your banana bread looks amazing... I really enjoy baking, too, but I gave up sugar for the New Year, so avoiding baking means less temptation for me in the house... :(

  5. Your banana bread looks amazing! Love the colors you used on your card. Super cute. Stay safe and warm. We didn't get much snow during the day today, mostly wind. Not sure what we will wake up to though. xoxo

  12. There's something so cool about your card. Yes, the colors are a bit unexpected. But it's like the bunnies are watching natural fireworks. Or watching the years accumulate!

  14. Warm and dry here, and I love that you baked and made cards for your snow day activity. I would have done exactly the same thing. And, I baked banana bread today, too! Forgot to put the chocolate in mine, but I did use my favorite recipe and I did not run out of butter.
