Fall Indiana Card & winnings

  Hello, Hope you all are well. It's almost Thanksgiving.I know that this Thanksgiving will be a lot different for a lot of families. Since our daughter and grand children live next door now, we will be going there. 

Wanted to share a picture of the card I made. I send out these Indiana cards with some crafty goodies to other crafter's on the Let's Make Cards Facebook group.  Fun sending them out and also fun receiving cards from all over.


 I really like the colors of the leaves on this paper. Got it from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment was made on my Cricut and then the cricut also cuts it out. 

The Indiana State Image was found on Google. Uploaded it to Cricut Design Space and cut it out. The little heart I added is from an Owl punch from Stampin Up. 


Not sure if you seen my project for the 2020 Fall/Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop a few post back.  It was so fun and loved hopping along. So much Inspiration. Anyway I was the comment winner from Journals for Life.They were one of the Super Sponsors. 

I was so excited and I received it in the mail the other day. It's the "But First Coffee Bundle". Oh I love It. Can't wait to play with it all.


They are having a Black Friday sale. Here is a link if you would like to check It out.   Journals for Life Stamps

 That's It for me today. Hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving. Stay Safe!

Fall Napkin Birthday Card & Monkey Bread

  We are now already about half way through November. This year seems to be flying by, and has also been one of the worst one's ever. I'm wondering if this virus well ever go away.

For today, I want to share with you the birthday card that I made for my Mom. 

It is my first ever napkin card. I had been wanting to make one for a good while. 




A sweet crafter named Brenda from the Facebook group 'Let's Make Cards' sent me this pretty napkin. I love anything with birds on it and I think this one is beautiful. 

I used a stick of purple glue that dries clear and rubbed it all over a piece of card-stock and then placed the napkin on it. 

The napkin has three layers. You only want the top layer.  I carefully used a credit card to rub it down. Then cut around leaving about a half an inch of the napkin. Trimmed the corners and glued it down. 

I thought a frame over it would be pretty, so decided to use a die from 'Spellbinders' called 'Decorative Labels'. After I cut it out I realized it was a whole piece and not a frame.

 I kept it in the die and took my exacto knife and cut around the inside edge to make a frame. 

I used shiny copper cardstock for the frame. My Mom always says one of her favorite colors is copper. 

The sentiment is stamped with More Mustard Ink and the sentiment is from a S.U set called 'Well Scripted'.  The die is from S.U. but can't recall what set.

Cardstock is white and a Bazzil Green.

I don't know if you can see, but in the bottom left hand corner of the card there are some little marks of ink. I had just got done stamping the sentiment, and my grandson was outside. He came up to the window that I had open and said "Mamaw". Well, I jumped and the block with the stamp on it went flying and bounced a few times on the craft table. I got some on the card. It could have been so much worse. You really can't tell, but I thought it was so funny. He came in thinking he was in trouble. I laughed and said It's fine. He was so relieved.

I really like how the card turned out and it was fun using a napkin. I have some other napkins. Looking forward to making some more.


This is already a long post but I wanted to share another recipe with you. I am sharing a recipe for Monkey Bread.  


 Monkey Bread

Ingredients you will need

3 cans of small biscuits or two cans of Grands

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 tsp.cinnamon



1stick of butter

3/4th cup brown sugar

2 tsp.cinnamon


Preheat oven to  350

  In small bowl mix together the 1/2 c. sugar and 1/2 c. cinnamon. set aside.

Separate biscuits, cut into fourths. Roll each piece in sugar and cinnamon mixture.   

Arrange pieces in a greased bundt pan.

Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook until de solved. Pour over biscuits.

Place in preheated oven and bake for  at least 30 minutes. 

You just want to make sure the biscuits are done.



My grand daughter asked me why it's called Monkey Bread, and I told her that I had no idea. All I know is, it's delicious.

So that's it for me today. Let me know if you try the Monkey Bread. Hope you all have a wonderful day. 

Stay Safe and Stay Crafty!

Fall/Winter Coffee Lover's Blog Hop



Hello paper crafter's, so glad you stopped by. I am so excited that the Fall/Winter Coffee Lover's blog hop has begun. Whooo Hooo!

I played along with the 2020 Spring/Summer blog hop, and also the 2019 Fall/Winter blog hop. So of course I didn't want to miss out on all the fun.

For my coffee project, I created a Magnetic fall/coffee note holder to give to my daughter. I had made one awhile back and she mentioned that she would like one. So I will be giving her this, along with her other birthday gifts



The Image is from Stamplorations and I love It.  I was a little nervous about making a project that needed to be colored because I don't color that often. But this image is smaller, and was really easy and fun to color.

  I used Spectrum Noir and Master's Touch Alcohol Marker's to color it. You probably can't tell, but for the leaves I tapped the markers in yellow and green to give it a two color effect. I also sponged around the whole image.

Cut the cardboard from a box. Used my Cropadile to punch holes along the side and crocheted a border. The paper I used came from a 6x6 paper pack.

Added a strip of burlap ribbon and glued a small wooden cloths pen to the front to hold notes or maybe her grocery list. Also added a little cut out leaf.

So that's my coffee project for today. I hope that you can find the time to check out this fun hop and play along. 

There are Super Sponsors, Awesome giveaways and Lots and Lots of wonderful Inspiration. 

Here is the link. Hope you play along.
