1st Halloween

This is the Halloween card I made for my grandson's first Halloween.  He loves playing peek a boo, so I added the "peek a" to the image.

Halloween treats

Just wanted to share the Halloween treats I made for my boss's kids.  Wishing you all a happy Halloween!

Girl Power at Paper Ala Mode

Hi everyone!  Today's Paper Ala Mode Challenge is all about girls - just make a girly card!  The sponsor is The Stamping Boutique and I chose this ever so girly image Jennifer Latte Bubble Bath.

I used stickles for the soap suds and then added some pearly bubbles.  The sentiment is computer generated.    You need to come play with us and have a chance to win some great prizes!

Next weekend I'm planning on going to see my grandson, so this weekend is going to be spent cleaning house and doing some extra meal cooking.  My menu for the week is

Creole Chicken With Field Peas
Ham, Asparagus, and Wild Rice
Ginger Beef with Mushrooms and Spinach served over noodles  (the recipe actually calls for kale, but I'm subbing with spinach since I have some in the fridge already)
Sliced Turkey Breast with Dressing and Sweet Potato (someone must be thinking Thanksgiving)
Nacho Supreme Casserole
ordering in a supreme salad from our favorite pizza place
Tex Mex Lasagna

The Tex Mex Lasagna, Creole Chicken, and Nacho Supreme Casserole will make enough for me to freeze half to replenish what I take out of the freezer for next week.

Our weather this weekend is just gorgeous and I plan on enjoying it as much as possible in between chores.  I need to because hot weather returns on Monday.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Menu for the week and a Christmas card

whew!  I got my cooking for the week done!  This week we are having

hamburgers, baked potato fries
meatloaf, mashed potatoes, peas
salmon patties, roasted carrots
ham and cheese grilled in oven with side salad
eggs, sausage, biscuits
thai curry coconut shrimp served over jasmine rice
saucy meatballs, rice, green beans
The Thai curry coconut shrimp is a meal we had from Plated a few weeks ago.  Brock loved it, so I decided to try to re-create it.  The only thing I couldn't find at the grocery store was bamboo rice, so I subbed Jasmine rice instead.

Here is a Christmas card I found time to make too

 I colored the image with some metallic pens and used a large background die of holly leaves.  I REALLY need to make more Christmas cards!  I hope you are all having a great weekend!
