Hey Crafter's, Glad you could stop by today to see my latest card that I have made.
My Daughter's birthday is today. Won't say how old she is. She may not want me saying. I will say she's over 21. Hee! Hee!
My daughter LOVES horses. So I knew for this year I wanted to make her a card with a horse on it. As soon as I seen the stamp set "Let It Ride" I knew I had to get it.
So here Is the card I made for her.
I have to say I enjoyed putting this card together. I had bought that embossed brown paper years ago. So glad I finally used it. It's called Brown pressed Tiles from the Paper Studio.
I was at the Dollar Tree one day and seen the roll of Burlap ribbon. I knew that it would be perfect for this card.
Did a little water coloring for the sky and grass using Marina Mist, Old Olive and Mellow Moss. Stamped the horse in Timber Brown and colored it with a Stampin Blendabilities in the color Nude.
Framed the picture with a scalloped rectangle die in Old Olive.
Used the weathered background stamp in chocolate chip on the marina mist cardstock. Thought that made it look a little more rustic. The base of the card is Close to Cocoa.
Almost didn't add the sentiment to the front of the card because I wasn't for sure it would look right but I managed to get it on there. I think it looks o.k. I also made the rope using some jute twine.
I'm pretty sure she Is going to love this one. It will remind her of her horse Dolly.
I also thought I would share a recipe with you. My grandkids spent the night a few nights ago. So I decided to make a breakfast supper. Made some white gravy and thought I would share with you.
White Milk Gravy
You will need-
4 Cups Milk
8 Tbs. Flour
1 Stick butter
In a skillet add 1 stick butter. Melt, to that add 8 Tbs. flour. Mix and add 2 cups milk. Add pepper and just a little salt and vigorously whisk to get the lumps out and then add 2 more cups milk. When it starts to bubble keep stirring until it's thicker. Don't leave it, it will stick to bottom. Take off heat. It will thicken up more after it's taken off.
That's it, wasn't that simple? If you need more just double recipe. I sometimes double it so that we can have it for the next day.
Hope you enjoyed stopping by and seeing my card and If you try the recipe let me know how it turns out. Have a great day crafty friends. God Bless!!!
