Sweet Wishes for Stefanie
My sweet niece Stefanie (and her husband Josh, of course) will soon be having a little one. Sweet little Logan is due in February. Josh is a big hunter so I wanted to make a card for next week's shower that incorporated camo in it. I love this little House Mouse image - I think every card I have made with it came out unbelievably cute.
This week's House Mouse and Friends Challenge (#110) is to make a card with something old and something new. My camo paper is new and my great nephew will be really new too. Also, the Twisted Sister Challenge is to make a card with something new but no pink (I cheated and used pink on a part of the pacifier).
I used the following on this card:
*House Mouse Monica with Pacifer Stamp
*Spellbinders Circle Die and Scalloped Circle Die
*Martha Stewart Branch Punch
*Marks Finest Papers - dark chocolate ribbon
*Stampin' UP! Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
*Hobby Lobby Paper Studio camo designer paper
*Ranger Diamond Stickles
I get to make my favorite pimento cheese recipe for the shower next weekend. I will post a picture when I make the sandwiches for 80 next week. Here is my recipe:
1 cup of shredded cheddar
1 cup of shredded American Cheese (I like the kind that is not individually wrapped)
1/4 up shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1/2 teaspoon of Tabasco
large jar of chopped Pimentos, drained
3 eggs chopped
1/4 cup bacon bits
dash of sugar
Mix in enough mayonnaise to make the spread the consistency you like (I like Kraft for this recipe).
Hugz to all, but special hugz to Stefanie and Josh!
