A Cityscape Card

I created this card for the Cityscapes Are On the Rise Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

I used patterned paper from American Crafts Craft Fair and cut out the cityscape. The background on the cardstock is from the Quickutz Retro Squares embossing folder. The stamps are both from Unity Stamp Co. The blimp is from City of Love and the sentiment is from Perfect in Every Way. If you have a chance, you should join in at Moxie Fab and make a project using a cityscape!

Expect Spring

Well, I don't know about you, but I am ready for spring (okay, to be fair, I was ready for spring before winter even really hit!). I made this card for CPS #208. The verse on the front is hard to read because the font is small. It says, "Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons do not last. the Spring rain will come again." - Sarah Ban Breathnach. I just love that quote. When I was making this card, I was looking at the peas on the paper and was thinking of going in the direction of the baby card. But then I got to thinking about all the seed packets that I have and can't wait to plant when spring gets here. So I thought that quote was fitting for the pea pods after all!

Crafting with J-E-L-L-O!

Saturday night we had company at our house for dinner. I saw this idea in a Taste of Home magazine and just had to try it. It turned out perfect (if I do say so myself!)

Do you want the recipe? Well of course you do. This may be a little different from the one in the magazine. I used one that I got from my mom.
4 different colors of jello
Sour Cream
Boiling Water
Mix the first color with 1 cup of boiling water. Divide in half. Add enough ice to make one cup (Side note: I make my jello right in the glass measuring cup so that I can see when it gets up to one cup, I think it's easier that way). Stir until the ice melts. Put in a 8x10 pan (or in this case divide between 6 goblets). Put it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or until it gets hard (A good test is to touch it with your finger, if it doesn't stick it is ready). After it hardens, take the other half of the jello and add 1/2 cup of sour cream (whipped cream can also be substituted but it doesn't set up very well). Pour over the first layer. Let it harden (about 30 minutes) and then repeat.
Easy, huh? It takes a "few" hours so make sure you're going to be home all day!

For the meal, I also made this roasted chicken from The Pioneer Woman. And this cheesecake for dessert. If you are wondering how to spell delicious, this is how. And easy. And now that I've made you all hungry, I think I'll go have leftovers! hehe
