Checkbook Cover

I made this Checkbook cover today. I saw a similar one on the internet, but it had more pieces to it. My hubby designed this with 1 -12x12 paper. I tried to make 2 out of a 12 x 12 paper, but you need this to be 6 1/2 x 11.25 so it doesn't work.
I will post directions after I type them up, later this week.

New Card & Gift

I made this "Coffee" Card and Cookie box gift for my sister Yoli's Birthday. She is one of my biggest fans to my cards and Homemade gifts. I love making things for family they are always so grateful!


Now the Gift:
A Box of Dark Chocolate Cookies From Trader Joe's
I used their bag and stamped it with a bean stamp and added Ribbon
and a a topper with a Pink and Brown sentiment.

Let them Eat Cake!

I made this Peach Cobbler for Dessert the other night; all I had was canned peaches, but it turn out really good anyway. I bet this would be excellent using FRESH peaches. I will try this again with fresh peaches. We topped it with a light Vanilla Ice Cream and it was still Yummy! I had almost the whole thing left the next day and we had it for my sister's Birthday Dessert! I got the recipe here Peach Cobbler Link and it was so easy to make.

I used only 1/2 cup sugar for the Peach sauce since the peaches came in LITE sauce and baked mine @ 400 Degrees for only 30 minutes and it came out perfect.

Now we're cooking

Today I am posting some yummy stuff!
Here are pictures of our Homemade Pizza for our Friday Date Night. We usually buy a pizza for our Friday Date Night, but this week we decided to make our own pizza. So we went off to Trader Joe's, whom has the freshest dough next to you making it yourself. My Mikey made the sauce and made us a very yummy pizza! Love a man that can cook!

Here is the Pizza before getting all the goodies on it.

Here is the Pizza with the Yummies on it.

Here is the Pizza all done . YUMMY!

Card #2

5 1/2"x 4 1/4" Portrait
 Recipe: This is a bright green Bazzil paper background stamped with a Butterfly stamp and Martha Stewart pink pigment inks.The green paper was edged with distress ink. The the aqua blue strip was punched with a Fiskars edge punch and chalked with a chocolate brown. The center sentiment was stamped on in black. The blue butterfly was also inked around the edges in distress ink and hand embossed on a Fiskars embossing plate and I added 3 Pink Rhinestones to the center. The sentiment background paper is from Micheal's. I was using scraps I had left over from other projects. The pink flower is a flower die cut I had. I added a button to the center and ran floss through the holes and tied it behind the button. Lastly I used my Cropadile a punched to small hole next to each other and ran the pink ribbon through the top.

This card was dry embossed using the Cuttlebug and the The sentiment was stamped onto the card before it was embossed with the divine swirls embossing plate.
The red and white flowers are paper punched shapes with a mini silver brad attached. The center aqua flower is a foam shaped flower with a red paper flower and a mini pearl glued on. The black polka dot ribbon was glued to the center using my glue runner.
