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.
Ingredients you will need
3 cans of small biscuits or two cans of Grands
1/2 cup sugar
1stick of butter
3/4th cup brown sugar
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.
