Chicken and Dumplings, Quilting, and Flowers

I have two BAJ/Card combinations to share. 

This one is linked up to the **Art*Journal*Journey* Geometric Patterns.  
I cased THIS lovely card by Pat (Kokirose).  I used the same quilt pattern she did, but changed up the papers, did faux sewing, expanded it, and added a verse from Psalms 78 to it.  Papers are SU! and stash.  The matching card has a vintage SU! Stove (1998 found the stamp at a flea market) and some accessories from the SU! Perfect Mix set.   This is going to a lovely friend who is making me some masks and is on cooking adventures as well.

My next combo has some lovely Peonies and leaves against a stenciled brick wall. I drew the flowers using THIS lovely flower picture as my inspiration. Colored it up with some water color pencils, which I also used to create splatter.  Added a bit of  Stickles and Acrylic Paint to the little fill ins.  This card is going to a friend who could use a pick me up.  The Muah stamp is Stamp-abilities.
I woke up today in a cooking mood.  Haven't really been in one of those in a very long time.  I made Cheesy Bacon and Egg Hash for breakfast. Then I made chicken and dumplings from scratch (tried to get close to my Mom's version with thicker strips of dumplings. I also made fried apple and cheese casserole, and squash and potatoes. I probably gained 5 lbs!
Thanks for stopping by!!!

  4. There's a precision to your folded quilt pattern which is very elegant, and I do like the rustic colour palette - but it's those glorious peonies against the sun-drenched bricks which really captured my heart here.
