Wintery Birthday Card – The Blue Version

Last week I made a snowman inspired birthday card.  I liked it so much that I decided to make a blue version to send my great uncle for his upcoming birthday.

Hope you like the blue version as much as the original!

I plan to make another version of this card for my Etsy shop, so keep an eye out for that too!

Crushin’ On Color: Yellow

Billy-Ball-and-Monkey-Tail-Bridal-Bouquet-250x375

Yellow is one of my favorite colors right now. I don’t know what it is about it. Maybe the brightness and happiness that it seems to invoke? Maybe because it has a warm summery feeling? Whatever it is, I am drawn to it and it makes me joyful.

Wintery Birthday Card

I really enjoyed making this hand-made, hand-cut, and hand-glued snowman themed birthday card.  Hope you all like it!  And I hope it already made it to the birthday girl so I didn’t ruin the surprise.

All pieces were hand-drawn and hand-cut, and the snowflakes were added by hand using a silver marker.  The font used on both the front and inside of the card is “A Little Pot” (a free font that can be found on Dafont.com) that I traced onto cardstock with a thin-tip black marker.

Thanksgiving 2010

I figured before Thanksgiving was too far in the past (and it’s already been a week), I should post about it and the cooking I did for the holiday.  My love and I were lucky enough to be invited to our friends’ house to celebrate and we had a really wonderful time.  Thanksgiving is one of my very favorite holidays.  I mean, what’s not to like about a holiday centered around getting together with family, friends, football, and food?

What was really great too, was that I got assigned food to bring.  Yay!  Since I live so far away from my family, I long for the parties I miss and the food I don’t get to bring to them.  I get jealous when I hear of the cupcakes and dessert my cousin got to make.  :(

Back to Thanksgiving though…I got assigned dessert, but I kind of got carried away reading my recipe book and ended up making an appetizer and side too.  I’ll post recipes later, but here’s what I brought to the festivities: Deviled Eggs, Mini Cornbread Muffins, Peanut Butter Marshmallow Crunch Brownies (which are always a hit), Creamy Lemon Dessert, and I picked up a store-bought Pumpkin Pie.

Thanksgiving was wonderful and our hosts were beyond gracious.  There was so much yummy food (delicious crab dip, tasty turkey, succulent honey baked ham, yummy spiced cider, and so much other great stuff) that my tummy is still recovering from the over indulging.  I LOVE THANKSGIVING!!!
