Well... I finally spent a bit of time in my room playing with paper yesterday. First time I've created anything this entire week. I have been busy gathering up craft goods and doing a little project planning for a crafty friends get together here next weekend. We'll be working on some Valentine themed projects.
I wanted to make a special card for my sister Sharon for her birthday this week. I needed to get on the ball so I could get it in the mail! The paper and image I used for this card where from the Crafty Secrets "Creating with Vintage Illustrations CD" and the stamps are from Crafty Secrets. You can see all their available stamps HERE. The bow on the card is one of my die designs from AccuCut. Die available HERE. Happy Birthday to my sissy! Love ya!
Well, we had a fun weeked. We had company, so lots of visiting and laughing.... oh.. and food! Man, after Christmas, New Years and now this.... time to really start watching it!
My thoughts were to keep it simple, have snacks in the afternoon and then we were going to have pulled pork sandwiches, a potato casserole and a chopped salad for the evening meal. We'll by the time everyone brings goodies... we was a spread!
Yummy Chopped Salad
(recipe originally found on pinterest from "Expresso and Cream" blog
*6 to 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
*2 medium pears, chopped
*1 cup dried cranberries
*1 cup chopped pecans
*8 slices thick-cut bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
*4 to 6 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
*Poppy seed Salad Dressing
*On a large platter, combine the lettuce, pears, cranberries, pecans,
bacon and feta cheese. Drizzle generously with poppy seed dressing,
followed by some of the balsamic vinaigrette. The recipe said they used about a cup of the dressings mixed.. about... 70 percent poppy seed dressing and 30
percent balsamic vinaigrette, so that's what I did. You can mix it up before added it to the salad and decide what you prefer.
Well, since I feel like I gained another 5 lbs just looking at that post, I guess I will close for now and go take the dog for a long walk.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
