Time to talk about the ...and more!

When I titled my blog paper stuff ...and more I was really referring to brads, ribbon, eyelets, punches, and all of the other items I hoard really well! But, one of my other passions is cooking, especially desserts. Not the best thing for a diabetic! Today's picture is of "Phyllis's Phamous Scottish Shortbread Cookies"! I have made these for years and it is a recipe from my SIL who is from Scotland. My friend Denise's youngest son's birthday was today. He had told his mom he wanted a big bunch of my cookies, so that is part of what he received for his birthday. The picture is the gallon bag of cookies sitting in his lap because he did not want his picture taken! It is great to be needed!

Thank You Card!

My friend Denise challenged me to create something with goodies she gave me for Christmas! So I made her a Thank you card using my new Tim Holtz paint daubers and my new Fiskars border punch! I also used a Cuttlebug die for the flowers that was seriously underused. I loved the way it turned out!


Here is a card that I cased from this card done by Pink Lemonade! Thanks for the inspiration Keri! I love your work!

I was so excited because I used four different Spellbinders dies to create the card!

Time to Get with the Program!

It has been over a month since I posted! Time flies! I am going retro and posting a few of my Christmas cards. Because of crunch time for the craft fair (my own fault, of course) I took the easy way out and created most of my cards use various Cuttlebug embossing folders. They were easy and challenging to not do a whole lot. So here they are!
