Southern Pecan Deer Jerky and some Dilly Beans Cards

After seeing my altered cake mix box yesterday, my darling (or should I say daring) husband decided to be creative too. He has been soaking the deer meat for this jerky for 24 hours (he mixed just about everything in our refrigerator to make that marinade), and now he has loaded it up on the electric dehydrators. I was watching him a few minutes ago when he checked it, so he got out some pecans and started adding them on top of the jerky. I know the look I gave him rivaled the strange look he gave me yesterday when he found me painting that box of cake mix. He had a hard time looking serious when he put the lid back on the dehydrator. I asked what he was doing, and he said he was making Southern Pecan Deer Jerky. I stood there for a minute considering what he said, and then I realized he was kidding. I started laughing, and then he started laughing too. It was a fun moment. Then he opened it up and we ate all the pecans off the top - they were yummy!


Today, I made two cards for the Dilly Beans Friday Challenge. The challenge is "In Stitches." The image can have stitches or you can use stitches on your card. I did two different cards, and then had to decide between them since you can only enter one. The top card is the one I entered. I cased a quilt heart card that Kokirose (Pat) made last month. I love how you can make a cool quilt card with digital images! I always had a hard time lining things up with rubber stamps, so I was thrilled to see how easy it is with digis. Dilly Beans has the best snowman images and they have tons of them. I just discovered them a few weeks ago, and I won the challenge so now I have three new images - yea! Of course, I had to get the image from my next card. It just spoke to me.

This is how I feel inside after my surgurically induced menopause (hope I spelled that correctly) and how I felt last year when my youngest daughter was 15. LOL! So I added this fun little quote under the image - it has already made me smile 20 times today. Now, that is a great card -one that can make you smile every time you look at it.

I can't wait for that deer jerky is done. If you get a chance, come on by and I will share some. Hugz!!!!

  6. Hey my DH makes deer jerky the same way-minus the pecans of course....lol I always love the way the house smells when he has it in the dehydrator. And if you are on a diet you can chew on that stuff forever...lol

    I love your fun snowmen cards too. They look so primitve to me and I love that style. You have such a diverse style that you can do a lot of different great looking cards.
