Happy Day after Christmas everyone! Fortunately, the weather cooperated & we drove to hubby's daughters' place. Actually, this was the first time we'd ever been with them on Christmas Day, so that was special. She's a great cook & made a delicious meal. My contribution was gingerbread with lemon sauce, which I hadn't made in several years. I was relieved it came out good & everyone enjoyed it. Both recipes are from the Betty Crocker cookbook my mom gave me when I graduated from college, so I always think of her when I use it.
This is PTI Blog Hop day & my card was made & mailed days ago. Intended to write the post then, too, but put it off. Still looking for that Blog Writing Genie--haha! The pretty inspiration photo actually made me think birthday, more than holiday, so that's what I made. Loved the girly color scheme of green, yellow, blue & pink. The wrapping papers have sort of a graphic look & made me think of PTI Background Basics: Medallions which I stamped in PTI Vintage Jadeite, Lemon Tart, Blueberry Sky & Pale Peony.I used my Mini MISTI to stamp the 2 words from PTI A Wreath for all Seasons in Blueberry Sky. The 3 little gems are a pretty close match to the blue. I really wanted some sparkle, but instead of using glitter glue, I heat embossed the frame around the circle window & the edges of the card with JudiKins Iridescent Sparkle--so pretty in real life. I'm also entering SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.
