Peony Bouquet for Mom & Butter Dip Biscuits

 It's Sunday afternoon and the sun is shinning. A beautiful Mother's Day. 

With the times being what they are, my sister's are planning to visit my Mom. They are taking their lawn chairs and sit outside. 
Unfortunately I haven't been feeling well so I don't get to go. Don't want to get anyone sick.  

Wanted to share with you the card I made for her. She is always so excited to get a card from me. 

Love how this Peony Bouquet card turned out. I think my Mom will love it to.

Can not remember where I got the little butterfly stamp. I colored them with Spectrum Noir and Master's Touch Marker's. I fussy cut them out. Which I hate to do.

The Ink colors that I used are, Lavender Lace, Gorgeous Grape,Barely Banana,Summer Sun,Bashful Blue,Marina Mist,and Momento Black Ink 

I would have had a hard time making this without my Misti and I had to make masks from post it notes. So it did take a little longer.

 I do think it turned out pretty. My husband said It's my best so far. That's saying a lot coming from him. He usually doesn't say a lot when it comes to my cards. 


The other day I made Country fried steak and white gravy. I needed some biscuits. So I made some homemade called Butter dip biscuits, also know as butter swim biscuits. So decided to share the recipe with you all.

Butter Dip Biscuits 

Preheat oven to 400

You will need

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp. salt
1 3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup melted butter

Melt butter in microwave and pour into a 8x8 baking dish. Mix dry ingredients, add buttermilk. Mix together. Don't over mix
Drop into melted butter. Spread out but try not to flatten them to much and cut into squares.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. 

I love how simple these are to make. I had one the next morning with homemade Strawberry Jam. So good! 

Let me know if you give them a try or if you have made them before.  

So happy you decided to stop by and hope you enjoyed seeing my card. Would love for you to come back. Hope you all are staying safe. God bless!
