Terrific Tuesday Challenge for Scrappy Mom's!

Hello Everyone!!! 

Welcome to another Terrific Tuesday Challenge for Scrappy Mom's! 
So this weeks challenge was to use the Smiley Card's Cartridge!  I'm glad this was the challenge because I like to try and create different things.  So I made sure to remove all of the "faces" and tried to change it up a bit.  

My sister is going to turn 17 on Thursday....HOLY MOLEY I'm getting old!!! Well, she will be going to take her driving test to get her license.....good golly stay out of JERSEY! LOL  I thought I'd make her a card that doubles up as a Birthday and Good Luck Card.  Plus, I got the chance to use my Animal Print Paper!!! My sister school has a cheetah for their mascot so I thought the cheetah paper was VERY appropriate.  The cupcake is from a Stampin' Up! stamp set that I just recently got....Let me just say that I went a little crazy on my last order! lol so y'all should be seeing more of their products in my up and coming projects. 

Any who....enough blabbering.  Here is what I created.  I also included a "Recipe" for my card as someone suggested it :)  

*Recollections card stock
*Recollections Animal Print card stock
*Ribbon from Michael's
*Button from Walmart
*Martha Steward Loopy Punch
*Stampin' Up! Decorative Label Punch
*Stampin' Up! Birthday Bakery Stamp Set
*Car from Smiley Card Cartridge
*Scrappy Mom's Kids Incorporated Stamp Set

Episode 30- meat sauce

Hey Everyone!!! I've FINALLY learned how to use my IMovie on my new Macbook and I LOVE it!! So I thought I'd take one of my older videos and have it edited and uploaded. Absolutely NOTHING to do with paper crafting but the next best thing.....Food! :) My hubby wanted me to make sure I mention that he approves of this recipe and thus you should try it. It only takes about 1 hour in total from start to finish to complete, and 45 minutes of that hour you only need to stir occasionally. I unfortunately do not have time to make meatballs with noodles as making the meatballs is time consuming. Thus the need for a meat sauce recipe. I hope y'all enjoy it and let me know what you think after you've tried it.

Momo's Tuesday Challenge

Hey Everyone! 

Happy Tuesday!  Today is Momo's Tuesday Challenge and man was it a challenge! This weeks challenge is to find something that inspires you, such as a photo, and make a project with that inspiration.  The below picture is my inspiration.  Gem is a schnoodle and my baby, as we don't have kids yet :) 

The is the card that I created.  I got the layout from Mojo Monday....Thought I'd make it a double challenge for me LOL.  

The dog is from Nate's ABC and the Circles are from Accent Essentials.  The stamp set is from Scrappy Mom's Amusing Animal.  The color isn't showing up right but the dog is grey and I sponged it with Black to make it look like Gem.  Be sure to head to Momo's blog to check out the other fantastic designers projects.
