Sweet 16 Birthday Cards

 Hey glad you could stop by. I have a nasty cold right now. Runny nose and cough all the time. Had it now for over a week. I can't wait to get over It.

Are you going to be watching the Total Eclipse? We are looking forward to It. Glasses are sold out everywhere around here. We did pick up a couple of pair at Walmart. Wish I had gotten a few more.

Tomorrow we will be going to my two nieces (twins) Sweet 16 Birthday party.  I think there is going to be dancing. I won't be doing any of that with my bad knee.

Here are the cards that I made for them.

Used the Sweet Treats Cartridge, The number 16 is from a stamp set from My Creative Time. Embossed the Ice Cream and to make the texture on the cones, I used my Martha Stewart Score board. Love the look of the cones. 

Well that's it for me, I'm going to have to go take something for this cough. So annoying!!!

Take care and make sure you protect those eyes during the eclipse. Please stop back by sometime. I love It when you all visit me.

Crochet Dishcloth and Strawberry Angel Cake Recipe

 Hi, Glad you could stop by. Today Is Wednesday. The grand kids are here. School starts back tomorrow. So today Is the last day of summer break. It goes by so fast. Wish they didn't have to go back so soon.

Thought I would share with you a Crocheted Dish Cloth that I made for my niece for her bridal shower. This was several months ago. But thought I would go ahead and show you all.

Since It was several months ago, I can't remember what stitches that I used. It's all cotton. 
Since It was part of her gift, I rolled and tied It with some twine and added a tag.  She really liked It. I need to ask her If she has used It It yet.

Thought tied up this way was a little nicer.  My niece has been having some health problems. Makes It bad that she's so far from all her family. Please say a prayer for her.

Also thought I would share a recipe with you all. It's a Strawberry Dump Cake. I call It Strawberry Angel Cake and yes It does taste a little like heaven.


I make this a little differently than the recipe. I use fresh strawberries. Mix them in some sugar and let them sit for awhile so they get juicy. I also let the jello cool down a little before adding the strawberries to It. 

I have made this several times and made one just last night. We all Love It and will enjoy some more later for this last day of Summer break. 

Hope you try this recipe. Really easy and really good. Thanks for stopping by.
