Happy Birthday to Y*u Card

  It's the last day of January. Glad to see January come to an end. Looking foward to Spring. I'm tired of the cold weather. 

 It's my grand daughter's birthday. Wasn't for sure what type of birthday card to make her this year. Wanted something cute and simple. I was on Pinterest one night and came across a cute free digital image of a kitty. 

My grand daughter loves her cats, especially her little kitten Samson. So I decided that I would use it for her card this year.


  I uploaded the image into Design Space and added the Happy Birthday to You. Colored the kitty yellow like Samson using alcohol markers.

 I'm sure she will laugh when she notices the word Y*U. It sure got me tickled. 

I sponged the grass and sky with S.U. Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue. The cloud is from a border die from the Dollar Tree. 

Cardstock used - Blue base- Core-dinations called Scuba Diver. Also used white and black. You can find the cute kitty image at iheartcraftythings


A couple of weeks ago my grand daughter and I decided to make some chocolate peanut butter balls. We had a good time making them. When mixing it up we couldn't figure out why the mixture was so dry. We had forgot to add the butter. So funny!  They turned out pretty good and I thought that I would share the recipe with you all.


Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls


-Ingredients needed-

1 cup Peanut butter

4 tbs softened butter

1-1/3 cup powdered sugar

tsp vanilla

1 tbs coconut oil

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


In large bowl first add powdered sugar, then add peanut butter, softened butter and vanilla

Mix and place in refrigerator for at least an hour. 

Scoop mixture and form little balls and place on wax paper.

Put chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl and add coconut oil.

Microwave 30 seconds at a time until melted. Dip peanut butter ball into chocolate using a fork or toothpick. Place back on wax paper until chocolate is set and enjoy. 



Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed seeing my card and hope you can make it back again. Have yourself a wonderful day!
