Warning - I took a long nap this morning and spent the rest of the day crafting - the result is a longer than normal post. My youngest daughter Allie even came and helped me make a card! What a fun day!
Allie's boyfriend, Will, plays for Birmingham Southern College so we made him a card today with his team colors.
Dude Time Doodles is sponsoring Tabitha's Designs Challenge #2 - Men's Sports Cards so of course I wanted to play! I love this fun football image - Ted Tightend. I used an old toothbrush to splatter the yellow and black ink. Allie thought that was very interesting!
I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #67 to make my card so I am entering it in that challenge as well.
I made Allie's favorite pasta salad too - I forgot to take a picture, but I am going to share the recipe.
That Pasta Stuff (Allie's Name for this dish)
1/2 box of Bow Tie Pasta (cooked and drained)
1/2 bag of Elbow Macaroni (cooked and drained)
1/5 cup of Wickles Relish (sweet/hot pickles - you can substitute sweet pickle relish with some Tabasco mixed in)
2 boiled eggs chopped
1/2 cup mayonaise (you can add more - Allie is not that fond of it so we use 1/2 cup)
1 can of black-eyed peas (drained)
1 can of Garbonzo Beans/Chick Peas (drained)
To taste: Tabasco, salt, pepper, Paprika, red pepper
Mix it all together and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
Allie made peanut butter brownies to take to Will while we made the card, and we tested them of course (Yum, Yum).
After she left, I made my Blue Moon card for the Haunted Design House Challenge (HDH148) Bad Moon Rising. The challenge calls sor a Big Bad Moon on your card. I love this Octopode Moon and it is perfect to this Blue Moon weekend!
Lastly, I finished my case of the SCS Queen for the Day#128, my sweet Alabama friend Kathleen Lammie. I picked THIS card to case. I love Katheen's card, and I really intended to go with bees...somehow it turned into a tree card. I think my new Tim Holtz tree die was calling me - LOL!
