Papertrey Ink Blog Hop with BUTTONS

I had a lot of fun thinking of ways to use buttons, but when I saw this button paper from Cosmo Cricket: Material Girl line I knew it would be perfect for the Blog hop! (hopefully it is alright to use another brand) I have really fallen in love with the Scattered Showers stamp set! I literally want to use it every day! I added the New Leaf Green ribbon to brighten the card a little bit and pull the green in from the paper. I just love that green, such a happy color!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

CARDS mini card challenge!

I decided to make some cards for the CARDS mini challenge! I wanted to make some super cheery cards, so I pulled out some New Leaf Green and Aqua Mist from Papertrey Ink.

The umbrella and sentiments are from PTI's Scattered Showers set, which was designed by Dawn McVey! All her stuff is super trendy and cute! The little rain boots and the flowers are from American crafts, I just love the rain boots!

A quick little card I put together during nap time! Thanks for stopping by!

Dinner Recipe

I like to cook, but hate having to search for things to make, I guess I want someone to make a menu for the week. Anyway I thought I would share an easy recipe that I found over. This recipe is really easy and really good!

Bruschetta Chicken Bake
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pkg. Stove top stuffing mix for chicken
1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bit sized pieces
1 tsp. dried basil leaves
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400 'F. Place tomatoes with liquid in medium bowl. Add garlic and stuffing mix and 1/2 cup water; stir just until stuffing is moistened. Set aside
Place chicken in 13 x9 in baking dish; sprinkle with basil and cheese. Top with stuffing mixture.
Bake 30 Min or until chicken is cooked through.
I saw this recipe in the Kraft Food and Family Magazine, they have a lot of great stuff in there. This would be great with a salad and a veggie!
Hope you give it a try!

Thinking of you : Olympics of Stamping

My inspiration for today's card comes from the new cover of Better Homes and Gardens. When I first saw this cover I got a huge smile on my face, which may sound weird, but the colors are so beautiful! The picture doesn't quite do them justice, but they are so clear and spring like. I knew I had to make a card!

Here is the card! I used Heros Arts Large Flower Cling stamp along with a sentiment from Scattered Showers. I added some lemongrass ribbon from offray to finish the card!

Thinking of You : Olympics of Stamping

Here is my third and probably final card that I am entering into the Moxie Fab Stamping Olympics. My little guy has taken an extra long nap today so I was able to wrap up some of my posts.

I really like this huge flower from Hero Arts! It is great for any kind of card as a background or even a focal point. Well thank you so much for stopping by!

Love You Card : Olympics of Stamping

This is my second card for the Moxie Fab Olympics of Stamping. I used two of my new favorite stamps from PTI Scattered Showers and Dot Spot's. I just can't put Dot Spot's down, it really works for everything you can think of!

Birthday Card : Olympics of Stamping

I decided to try a couple cards for the Olympics of Stamping over at the Moxie fab blog! On my first card I used my new favorite color combo, raspberry fizz, brown, aqua mist, and white.
All supplies are PTI except for the polka dot background which is by stampabilities.
