Sweet 16 Card

 Hello glad you stopped by. I have been missing in action for awhile. I don't think I made even one post during this month. 

Even though I haven't been crafting very often I had to create a card for my Grand daughter Scarlett for her sweet 16th birthday. 

So here is the card that I made for her.

I wasn't for sure what kind of card to make her, but I knew that I wanted to use a tiny floral print paper. One of her gifts is a summer dress with tiny flowers. 

I cut the 16 out with my Cricut. and popped the whole piece up with foam tape. You can't tell but I added Wink of Stella to the flowers and to the tiny dots that are going down the side of the card for some sparkle.

I'm happy with how the card turned out and I think she will like it. It felt really good to do some crafting. Hopefully I can get back in there soon and make something else.

I recently made some Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and wanted to share the recipe. 

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


2 1/2 cups quick oats 

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 tsp cinnamon

2 sticks room temperature butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 raisins

preheat oven 350

.In large bowl combine oats,flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside
In another bowl mix butter, vanilla, eggs until smooth. Mix into oat mixture. Add raisins and mix.drop on cookie sheet at least 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool & enjoy

I usually make these cookies a few times a year and the family always loves them. If you decide to make them, let me know how they turned out.

That's it for me today

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!


Happy Sweet 16th Birthday Scarlett River!
