Hey There

made a cool word bubble on a card for her Make A Card Monday video. I thought it was so cute and wanted to try it too. I love the results.

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #13

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

A new challenge from Dawn. It wasn't too much of a challenge though since the colors work so well together. The sentiment from Button Bits is perfect for a wedding card or reaching a goal.

These rub ons and stamps from Autumn Leaves incorporated the colors so beautifully. I used melon berry ink to tie in the berry paper. I really love how it turned out.

Up, Up, And Away

Finally a little time for me to make something. I have had a very busy week. Good, but busy. I was so excited to find this new set on my doorstep yesterday! I love hot air balloons and biking so this set was perfect for me. I really should be adding to my shop, but I want to send this to my nephews. I miss them. Have a great weekend!

Wish Big

Both of my nephews' birthdays are taken care of now. This one is for Tommy. He will be turning 9. Unfortunately we were unable to have our annual family gathering at my aunt and uncle's house this year. I miss these guys. Maybe Ryan and I can make a special trip to TN soon.

A Little Birdie Told Me

My nephews' birthdays are coming up. This one is for the youngest. It was a lot of fun to make. I hope he likes it. I still need to make one for Tommy.

Here's another song I have been listening to a lot lately. I really like her voice.

Love Birds

We're going to a wedding this weekend. Ryan's cousin is getting married. I made two cards. One from us and one from Ryan's parents. I love how the white rub ons (American Crafts) look on the clear cardstock.

Purse Shopping

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

I need a new purse. Here are some Etsy bags that I really love. Now to make a decision. The last two are my favorites. I really love the striped one, but think it might be too big.

Decisions, decisions....

Just a little card I felt like making. I love these PTI colors together. Lemon Tart, Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss, and Dark Chocolate. Hope your week is off to a good start!

I Can't Cook

Sunday, July 5, 2009

I can, however, make a mean cucumber salad. Everyone loves it and it is my constant contribution to a BBQ of any kind. So I made it to bring to my aunt and uncle's house yesterday. It's a recipe from a cookbook my mom gave me before Ryan and I got married. Betty Crocker's Bridal Edition. It has a lot of other information for us non cooks such as, explanations of why certain ingredients are used and substitutions you can make etc..

Cucumber Salad
2 medium cucumbers
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup water
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
chopped fresh dill or parsley if desired

1. Slice cucumbers
2. Mix all ingredients above (except dill) and pour over cucumbers.
3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
4. Drain liquid and add fresh dill

I made the cute little pinwheels to make it more festive. Ryan laughed because he thought cucumbers were not exciting enough to warrant such fanfare. I ended up poking them into the brownies that my mom made:)

This has been in my head all day. I love it.

Take Flight

Wednesday, July 1, 2009

I'm almost done with another really cute and very versatile template. I can't wait to show you! Ryan is taking the day off from work tomorrow and we are going to the waterfalls. We have gone every year for the past 10 years. We're bringing Buggy, can't wait!
