To color the images I used my blender pen, and simply took the ink off of the thick end of my markers, that way I was able to blend the colors and not get such bold/harsh colors on the graphics. The grass was simply sponged on after and the oval cut out was made with the new Oval Framelits.
Arriving home last night the first thing asked when we got through the door was "What's For Dinner"?
How should I know, I just got here too!
Well, I was fortunate enough to still have a package of chicken (not bagged, and in the freezer) in the fridge, so I baked it and then topped it with a jar of Carmalized Onion sauce that I picked up at Chartreuse Decor. Served with mashed potatoes and a green salad, it was quick and delicious. Dinner on the table in 45 minutes!
For the Halloween block I have used Sahara Sand, Basic Black, and Whisper White card stock from Stampin' Up, and the black cat Designer Series Paper is from the Halloween line a couple of years ago (you know I won't throw it out if it's still useable).
These are the cookies that my son and I made for his lunch tomorrow. Again, the recipe comes from the complete Magnolia Bakery cookbook! I used butter for the entire recipe, and the cocoa is from Bernard Callebaut.
These cookies are so AWESOME, not sure there will be any left for lunch!
I made this card for a friend of mine, I know her kitty's name was Tigger, so I assumed he must have been some form of yellow color.
The reason that I call this card a "Hybrid" is because it is a little of all my favorite things (you're humming the tune now, right?).
The card base is Cajun Craze paper from Stampin Up, as are the three colored brads, the Designer Series Paper is from Close To My Heart, called Dotty for You, and the stamp is also a Close To My Heart stamp. The coloring was all done with my favorite markers: Copics!
When I decided to participate in the Facebook Plenty of Fish Mystery Quilt, I really had no idea how many scraps of fabric I had! Well, since I finished the first step and realized how many bright colored scraps of quilt left overs I had, I decided to make a second one as well!
Might as well use up those scraps! My intention for both of these quilts is to assemble completely from scraps!
My son and I recently went to Color Me Mine in Sherwood Park, and I painted the bowl. I could not resist it had a cupcake on it. SO Fun!
Now, it has been sitting on the table for me to admire for the past couple of days, while my yarn ball rolled past it, and after the 100th time of picking yarn up off the floor I decided to put it in the bowl.
Since I have so much spare time in my life (just wait, I have to stop laughing), I decided since I had nothing better to do, to participate in the Prairie Quilt Mercantile's, Facebook Mystery Quilt!
I am going to do this quilt entirely with my basket of scraps!
Here is what I have so far....
As I was sewing these together, I got to reflect on where all these different fabrics came from and what I used them for (some are even from my last Prarie Quilt Mercantile Mystery Quilt Event : ))!
If you know me, you know how hard it is for me to keep something in it's wrapper without me knowing what it is. But, you can be proud of me I did wait til just after midnight to open my Sock of the Month yarn from Biscotte & Cie!
It looks fun, but now, where is my pattern......oh the anticipation!!!
