New Share

Bet you all thought I quit making anything. I did make some stuff, just been busy with school and visiting for Thanksgiving.

Before we left I made this card for a technique swap I was in. The lace is called double ruffle and was made with a new die cut from Sweet & Sassy Stamps. Not sure you can see it, but there are two ruffles, the bottom one is purple. The stamps are from a retired set from Close to My Heart. The placement of the horn is out of the box ( because it's not inside the backing). The "Give Thanks" is done with thin silver tread, it's call Sprilli. The edges are sponged with ink. I really love doing the Sprilli, makes things look fancy.

For Thanksgiving we went to my brothers and sister-in-laws in Nevada. Had a wonderful dinner with some of their friends. Kim and I made 4 pies for the dinner. She tried a recipe for pumpkin pie she found in a magazine. It was made with Bailey's (she used Carolines). Made the filling richer than the regular pumpkin pie, was very good. I did a Mincemeat pie and Apple. Some of the guests had never had meat in their mince and was surprised at the flavor. My little sister-in-law is great for trying new recipes, she also made a delicious stuffing. It had sausage, peppers and a bunch of stuff I don't normally put in stuffing, was very yummy. My brother did the turkey on the rotisserie, was very moist. We had a wonderful time while we were there, we always do. Kim and I made Christmas cards, so I'll be posting some of the ones I made along with a technique we did. Not sure if it has a name but it turned out pretty cool. I'm going to try it the right way and see if I like it better.

Until I post again, hugs,
