Punched a 1 3/4″ circle from the stick part of a post it note and used it as a mask for the moon on a 2.75″ x 6″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
Brayered Bashful Blue, Island Indigo and Elegant Eggplant in that order at the top of the card stock.
Removed the moon mask and sponged So Saffron ink in the middle of the moon.
Stamped the house using Stazon Jet Black ink.
Sponged the hill in using Old Olive ink leaving the bottom of the card stock white.
Stamped the fence by loading the stamp with a Basic Black marker and then huffing on the stamp to moisten before stamping it.
Colored in just the fence of the fence stamp and stamped it so the fence continued. Repeated on the other side.
Stamped the Sentiment in the moon using Stazon Jet Black ink.
Added a path to the house using an Old Olive marker.
Sponged Old Olive ink at the bottom of the card stock.
Cut a 4.75″ x 6.25″ piece of Designer Series paper and added 2 Elegant eggplant panels.
Stamped the mummy and the trick or treat bag using Stazon Jet Black ink on Whisper White card stock and cut them out.
Ripped a piece of Old Olive card stock for grass and sponged Basic Black ink at the bottom edge.
Adhered the grass card stock, mummy, trick or treat bag using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Added a Googlies Eye to the mummy (super cute) and added a handle to the trick or treat bag using a Basic Black marker. Also added to Old Olive Glimmer Brads.
Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″. Makes me want to go out and get some candy, lol.
I’m a little late posting today. I’ve been busy in the kitchen doing some more freezer meal stuff.
Yesterday I got 6 lbs of ground turkey, 1 lb of cheddar cheese and 3 lbs of hamburger on sale.
So with my bargains I made the following:
50 Breakfast Burritos:
First, I made my ground turkey into turkey sausage. Here is a link to the recipe I used CLICK HERE. I tripled the recipe.
Then I made my breakfast burritos. Turkey sausage, 24 eggs and 2 Tablespoons of Milk scrambled, 1 lb cheddar cheese shredded in food processor, 50 flour tortillas and large jar of salsa (I used home made salsa). These were put together and par-frozen on cookie sheets and then transfered into freezer bags and back in the freezer. To use, all you need to do is take one out and wrap it in a paper towel and microwave 1.3 minutes. Super fast breakfast.
The 3 lbs of hamburger was browned along with some onion and bell peppers. It was then drained and divided up into 3 freezer baggies. Now I have meat all ready to add to spaghetti sauce or used in casseroles.
Love when I can take advantage of a sale.
May your day be filled with fun and excitement!
Until my next post. . . . .
Sacramento, California (Sold Out)
