Celebrate


Hey ya'll! Thanks so much for your support on "Watch Me Wednesday." I really appreciate it and will get working on next week's project soon! It was so rainy and gloomy here yesterday. We made Laura's dish here, had some wine, then that knocked my butt right out! I slept forever and it was only supposed to be a nap! As background, I love naps. My naps really are short sleeps, like 1-2 hours minimum. But, last night I slept for nearly 4 hours. I'm working on getting sleepy again so I don't stay awake all night! A girl's gotta get up and go to work all day today! I hope you all enjoy this card I put together a little while ago. Lots of purple...I know it's not a popular color out there, but I love colors...all of them!

Instructions
  1. Trim purple cardstock to 3” x 4.5”, then stamp stars pattern and heat emboss.
  2. Distress cardstock edges.
  3. Die cut star from red cardstock, then emboss dots and distress the edges.
  4. Pop the star off purple cardstock and add twine and rhinestone treatment.
  5. Stamp ticket on yellow cardstock, cut out and pop off star.
  6. Adhere panel to white card base.
  7. Add buttons.
Supplies

Stamps :: Papertrey Ink – just my ticket; Unity Stamp Co. – distressed stars

Ink :: Tsukineko – Versamark watermark; Close to My Heart – cranberry

Cardstock :: Stampin’ Up! – more mustard, elegant eggplant; Papertrey Ink – pure poppy

Embellishments :: KaiserCraft – rhinestone; Papertrey Ink – buttons; May Arts – twine; American Crafts – clear embossing powder

Tools :: Spellbinders – S4-092 Stars Five Nestabilities, W-001 Wizard; Provo Craft – swiss dots embossing folder, cuttlebug

Just for fun, I thought I'd share something sweet with you. I made these cobblers a little while ago, first the big pan version, then the mini servings. Oh, how I love those mini cobblers! The little white serving dishes I purchased from Ross for like $5-7 for a set 4! I cheated and picked up the peach filling from Cracker Barrel, even though it's not that difficult to make (just throw some canned peaches and sugar together), it's definitely a time saver during the work week. I also use another shortcut and that's pie crust dough sheets (like these). I line them in the pan on the bottom, then over top. For the mini cobblers, I just tore enough pieces to line all of my cup bottoms and tops! :) Serve hot with some french vanilla ice cream and MM MMM you'll be in peach cobbler heav'n! Such a fun and quick dessert, looks like you did a whole lot, and tastes so good! Enjoy!



Thanks so much for visiting. Stay sweet! :)

Ashley I miss Cracker Barrel. We live in Washington state and no Cracker Barrel's. Lots in Alabama though and we sure do miss them.

The card is very nice. I have a 5 minute version of a peach cobbler that is very similar. Instead of using pie crust dough you use a yellow Jiffy cake mix on top after you add the pie filling or cobbler filling to your pan...sprinkle the Jiffy over the top...then cut up a cube of butter and lay it over the top as evenly as possible and bake it till the cake on top is done and it is a golden brown...just as good and my son wants me to write down the recipe for his fiance to make LOL...oh that southern cooking. TFS your wonderful card and the cobbler...both a must try.
