Miss my cooking posts? I'll try to post a recipe this weekend that's a simple salad to share with your family and friends! Also, I'll be sure to share my Maryland roots with how I eat crabs. This could be a video too! I just ordered a bushel for our little shindig this weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great Friday Eve and take care of yourselves, Bleeps!

Another beauty Ashley! Very elegant. I am curious about the the die cut. I looked around M&MBI and did not find these on their site. Do these come with the image printed on the die cut or did you stamp that beautiful design?
