For your Birthday (I've Got You Covered) & Pink Fluff

 Hello, Hope you all are staying well and safe. I wanted to share a birthday card that I made for my sister.

I used a digital Image from Whimsy Stamps called "I've Got You Covered" that they offered for free.  

During these crazy times of not being able to get together for parties and toilet paper being one of those hard to find items, I thought she might get a laugh out of this.

This was such a fun image to color. I was worried I wouldn't have enough of the right markers to do it.

 I only have two greens and they didn't look like they would work together. So I used a yellow first. and the gray that I used on the toilet paper was the lightest one I had. 

This Image is called Dudley, but since I am giving it to my sister I added a few eyelashes to make it look more girly.

To make it look more like a birthday card, I added a stamped and fussy cut party hat and of course had to add a balloon. I also added some confetti.

I am pleased how it turned out and it was really fun to make. 

I used to work in home health care and helped the elderly. One of my clients was a woman named Mary. So sweet and kind hearted.

 I have always had a soft spot for her in my heart. She had, had such a horrible childhood and much of her adult life as well.

 One of her favorite desserts that I would make for her was Pink Fluff.

My sweet friend Mary passed away recently from the Caronavirus and it breaks my heart that she had no one that loved her by her side. 

So today in honor of Mary, I want to share the recipe with you.

Pink Fluff

One container Cottage Cheese
1 small box strawberry jello
1can pineapple (drained)
1/2 bag miniature marshmallows
1 tub of cool whip

 Add cottage cheese to large mixing bowl. Add packet of strawberry jello, mix
Add pineapple and marshmallows , mix
Fold in cool whip 

Cover and refrigerate for several hours. I usually do mine the night before.
I like how easy this dessert is to make. Nice in the summer because you don't have to start the oven and it will always remind me of Mary.

 Thanks for stopping by. Hope you all have nice weekend. Hopefully you will find some time to do some crafting. I will be working on a card today.   Stay safe my friends and let me know if you try the Pink Fluff.
