Tomorrow I'm going to pick her brain and pick thru all her old recipes and get them on my laptop. She's got wonderful recipes! Her own, her mother's, my FIL's mother's.............it's time to put together and design the Murphy Family Cookbook!! :)
Okay............DUHHHHHHHHHH............editing to add WHY the title is Mountain Travels!! LOL I forgot that part!!! We drove thru some of the small towns we're considering moving to and saw many potentials!!! I will post some pics when we go with a Realtor and start narrowing down choices!!
I did get to make a couple of cards this week.........I did Wednesday's Sketch Challenge on SCS and also made a little Nugget Box to match!!! My newest Chemo Card Angel assignment is a sweet 11 yr. old girl with leukemia. It's really such a small thing......but it makes me feel happy to share my creations and a smile!! Only 1 card a week is the requirement for a Card Angel, but I love to send an extra if I get a chance and sometimes a cute little gift! She LOVES pink and sparkles..........sound familiar???!!!! LOL
I used Whisper White, Pretty In Pink, Tempting Turquoise and SU DP. The glitter dp is by Doodlebug. The Love Matters stamp set was so perfect for this fun and sparkly intro card for my newest Chemo Card Angel patient!! I think she'll love it!! Just added some bling and ribbon!! Also made a matching Nugget Box with the same SU DP and found some heart-shaped chocolates that fit inside! I used a sentiment stamp from the Gina K. ~ Rectangle Greetings set.
Oh this one was FUN!! It's a different type of Pocket Card.........called a Pixie Pouch. I used an extra image from my House Mouse SOTM club package I got for January. Isn't he precious?? Can you see why I'm soooooo addicted??!! LOL I also am totally LOVIN' the Basic Grey line of designer papers!!!!! WHY doesn't anyone tell the newbie about all these cool things??? I have to keep discovering other papers, stamp companies, etc all by my lonesome!! (well, except for having the company of dh's credit card!!! ROFL!!!). Allrighty.......back to my project.......I used Purely Pomegranate and Whisper White c/s, Basic Grey ~ Two Scoops dp. I used a cool Lace corner punch, some eyelets (with my crop-o-dile........not with Kerianne's or Kub's brand new, huge, giGANto one!!), some gingham ribbon and some primas with gems!
