Painted Harvest in Blue

 Hello and welcome to my blog. It's cold here in Indiana. It's still officially fall, but sure doesn't feel like it. 

I have been decorating for Christmas and have the Christmas Tree up. I do have some of my shopping done but still have several things to get.

 I must say I do love ordering on line. I did get to Walmart and got a few things for their black Friday sale. My grand kids and I enjoyed the hot chocolate and cookies they served.

Wanted to share with you a card that I made for someone that will be having surgery soon.

It was so fun playing with this stamp set again. It's called Painted Harvest and is from Stampin Up. 

I had been wanting to make one in blue. I used Marina Mist and Night of Navy. For the center I used Crushed Curry. The leaves are In Old Olive.

Was a little afraid that the blues together were to dark. Still not sure. Used the background stamp Woodgrain from Stampin Up in Going Gray.

Wasn't for sure what to put near the bottom. Found this little metal die in my dies and think that it looks good in crushed curry cardstock. I also used a stitched banner die and small piece of ribbon.

I think this card turned out pretty and I'm sure she will enjoy receiving it.

 As some of you know I post recipes on here from time to time. I thought I would share a quick tip for you bakers if you don't already know it.
If you need buttermilk for a recipe and realize you don't have any, you can substitute by using milk and lemon juice.

1 cup milk
1 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
continue to stir while adding the juice. 
it will start to thicken up some like buttermilk

Just thought I would share that little tip with you.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you come back. Happy day to you and God bless!

  2. I love that stamp set. I have it but unfortunately it never worked very well for me. My friend told me to sand it down a bit and it did help. I love how yours turned out and love the blue! Thanks for the tip. I wanted to make my buttermilk pancakes this weekend but didn't have any. I am writing this down! I am sitting here typing wrapped in a blanket! It is so cold and damp. We were suppose to get 5-8" of snow but lucked out and only got 3". I'm already looking for Spring!
