Wow, I just cannot believe that it is almost mid-July! We've had our monsoon days for a week and a half with a bit of rain as well as wonderful thunder. For those who have been with me, you just know I love, love, love the thunder here in southern Utah! It just rolls and rolls off the canyon walls. It's unlike any thunder I've ever heard. So, we're drying out now. Hopefully, we'll have another visit from Mother Nature's summer monsoon!
Some of you have asked me about the little embossed stamp that I used on my Father's Day card. Here it is:
These came in a little set of four small embossing folders and one metal die. It's available at HAPPY SCRAPPIN' SCRAPBOOKINGYou can find it HERE. The owner, Sharon is a very close friend. She ships the day after you place the order. You won't be disappointed!
My DH hates cole slaw. He'd rather eat spinach than cole slaw. Well, I found a copycat recipe for KFC's cole slaw (which I love). I gave it a go and voila! My DH now loves cole slaw! The recipe is a "no brainer." You can Google it and see the entries which are all the same (Look for copycat recipes). If ever you don't have buttermilk in your fridge, just add some vinegar to the milk and wait about 10 minutes. It'll work perfectly! If you want the recipe without searching for it, e-mail me. I'll be happy to send you a copy!
I've been making some cards. The one I'm going to share tonight took me about four days to do. Why does it take me so long? Ugh! I hope you like it. I'm going to put it into my Etsy store and see if anyone else likes it enough to purchase it. I'll add a specific initial to Edwin's shirt! I love how it turned out. What do you think?
DH wanted a teeny tiny star by Edwin's eye, so, if you look closely, you'll see it on the side of his right eye (as you are looking at it). The circle is elevated on pop dots, and Edwin is also elevated. His shirt awaits a nice white alpha!
This is the interior top:
Here is the interior bottom:
The little ticket at the bottom is removable for later use. LOL I stamped it with midnight blue ink.
I think my DH would love a card like this for him, too. I could tell by his ahhhs and ohhhhs. He's such a wonderful support! I love him to death!
Thank you for stopping by. I so appreciate your taking the time to visit and hope that you will come back again to see what's new.
