After a long break...

I am back! I have neglected this blog for the past 5 months as we wrapped up our California lives and moved half-way across the country to New Orleans. I am having fun getting re-acquainted with my new home. The history , the people and food and culture of this great city will keep me busy for the entire time we live here. I am also finding new inspirations for my crafting . My goal is to update this blog with new projects and ideas several times a week. Thanks for coming back.

I have always enjoyed swaps and none more than recipe swaps.This wonderful recipe for summer zucchini is one my Mom gave me this summer. It is delicious!

I love this new stamp set. The possibilities are endless. For this project, I inked the stamp with Summer Sun. and then sponged Garden Green onto the middle of the medallion. I punched out the middle with the a large circle punch and used dimensionals to add that to an image that I had stamped in Summer Sun on the white card stock. I added a little copper brad to complement the colors I was using.
This was a  quick and easy recipe card. Trying something similar on a regular card yields great results as well.

Thanks Sara! I am excited to back in the groove!

I forgot the most important thing- the stamp set is called Medallion.
