Hi there! Hope you are all having a great weekend! Tina and I have been taking advantage of the beautiful fall weather here in the desert and riding our bicycles like there is no tomorrow :) It's week 2 of the CR84FN66 Color Challenge, thanks to all who have joined along so far, lots of beautiful projects to look at! You have until Wednesday to join along and create using the pretty colors shown below:
Before our Saturday morning bike ride, I baked a few loaves of pumpkin ginger bread ~ 1 for Tina and 1 for Scott & I. I fancied Tina's loaf up with a tag made using Die-namics Homespun Birdhouse & Set and also made a coordinating card. She has been traveling out of town for work nearly every week, returning Friday evenings so I wanted to make her something welcoming her home with a Homespun vibe :)
To make the card, I stamped the Love Lives Here sentiment from Die-namics Homespun Birdhouse & Set on sentiment strip made using Die-namics Sentiment Strips. I die cut a corrugated cardboard birdhouse as well as a Grungeboard heart. The beautiful doily peeking out from behind was made using Die-namics Dizzy Doily DUO die. I finished it off with a pretty Whip Cream felt rolled rose that was die cut using Die-namics MINI Rolled Roses along with a few Natural cardstock leaves made using Die-namics Royal Leaves.Since it is a coordinating set, The tag is basically the same except rather than being an A2 size greeting card it is a gift tag made using a Die-namics Traditional Tags STAX die.
For those of you who asked me about my pumpkin bread, I admittedly do not bake it from scratch. My thought is "why reinvent the wheel?" when Krusteaz already has perfected the recipe?! :) All I do, is follow the directions on the box then add 1/4 C chopped pecans and 1/2 C crystalized ginger then enjoy :)
Thanks so much for visiting! For additional inspiration, please be sure to visit the CR84FN blog to see what the other design team members have created. Have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
