This is my favorite snack this summer.  I use the recipe from Simply Recipes for perfect guacamole.  The only change I make is I add a little minced garlic and I add more cilantro.  My family loves it, at least the ones who will try it.  My boys won't even try it, that's ok more for the rest of us.  Have a great day!

Day 113-Ad Inspired

The challenge for day 113 at 365 Cards is ad inspired.  I was able to work on this card last night while we were in the basement waiting for the tornado warnings to pass.  Thankfully we did not have any damage but about 20 miles away 20+ homes were damaged or destroyed.  Thankfully no one lost their life and there were only minor injuries.

Did you know that Morning Star is the name given to the planet Venus when it appears in the East (morning sky) before sunrise.  Just a little tidbit I learned this week.

Day 100-All Lined Up

Day 100 at 365 Cards is all lined up.  The challenge is to get things lined up in rows. In fact, everything from the embellishments to the sentiment should be lined up, and you'll need to have at least THREE items in each line that you create.  For some reason this challenge was super hard for me, I think it's because I have a hard time lining things up.  I've never been able to draw or cut a straight line without tools.

Father's Day Picture

I saw this really cute idea for a picture for dad at Sisters Stuff.  You make large letters that spell out DAD and take a picture with each child holding a letter.  If you have 3 children, which I do, it works out perfectly.  Have a great day!

Day 95-It's So You

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is it's so you.  This challenge is all about creating a card that is a reflection of YOU.  I knew the card would be brown and green,  which pretty much describes my wardrobe.  Of course the paper I used I bought on clearance, the ribbon is some I saved off of a gift I received-never throw something away you might use later.  The stamp is one I picked from the stash of stamps I am borrowing from my MIL.  This was a very simple card to make and I live a very simple life, as simple as you can with 3 children.  Have a great day!

Day-93 Clowning around

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is clowning around.  This is what I came up with.  I used my everyday paper dolls cart and changed things up to make a clown.  The outfit is actually the space boys outfit that I cut off the gloves, the shoes I cut out free hand and the nose is the smaller hole punch on the crop-a-dile.

 Have a great day!
