Sheep Cards

My niece special ordered some sheep cards from me. She has a flock of all sorts of sheep that she raises for the wool.  She has them sheared, the wool cleaned, then she spins it into wool, dyes it and knits with it.  These are the cards I made for her.

They inspired me to design a couple more sheep items for my Etsy shop.


My mind is as cluttered as my table

This is what my dining room table looks like when I'm designing cards.

All I have to say for myself is uff dah! It's no wonder I can't sleep at night. My next event is going to be a card buffet where I have all the cutting and stamping done so they can drop by and choose as many cards as they want, then take them home and put them together at their leisure.  So far I have a guy card, a sympathy card and a baby/toddler card cut stamped and ready to roll.  Now I need to clear off my table so I can think straight, then I'll be working on a couple of winter themed cards.


Cards for my customers

I tried really really hard to make them all the same, but I just couldn't do it. In fact, there are no two the same.

 This one I put vellum in the center.

I stamped the inside with versa mark.


Attaching words

 Do you like to use the die cut words on you cards, but don't like dealing with the messy glue that gets everywhere?  Well, there is a solution for that. I discovered it on Stamping with Linda's blog. You an watch the video here.
I attached double sided tape on the back side of my card stock, then ran it through my Big Shot
Just take the backing off the tape and ta dah, you can just place it wherever you on your card.


Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

I found this post in my drafts, I'm pretty sure I posted the recipe before, but it's so yummy, it's worth posting again. In fact now I'm so craving it I think I will bake up a pan today.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars 
Preheat oven to 325
1 (18.25) package yellow cake mix  (I used caramel cake mix)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup creamy peanut butter (I used a caramel almond spread)
2 eggs
Combine in a large bowl and mix until smooth.  Press into a 9 x 13 pan reserving 1 1/2 cup mixture to crumble on top.
1 (12 oz) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
Melt in a small pan and pour over cake mixture.
Crumble the reserved cake mixture on to top evenly.
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.  Cool completely before cutting into bars
