cookie jar kid

tollcookiejarTwo challenges this morning the colors of Color Throwdown, the CASology cue Melt. Yes the melt is a stretch, but as the story goes  in 1930,  Ruth Wakefield was mixing a batch of cookies for her roadside  Toll House Inn guests when she discovered that she was out of baker’s chocolate. She substituted broken pieces of Nestle’s semi-sweet chocolate, expecting it to melt and absorb into the dough to create chocolate cookies. That didn’t happen, but the surprising result helped to make Ruth Wakefield one of the 20th century’s most famous women inventors. When she removed the pan from the oven, Wakefield realized that she had accidentally invented “chocolate chip cookies.”

I put  the recipe at the back of the cookie jar. the digital stamp is from A day for Daisies

3-valentine-girlsI like hearts, so its easy to make cards around Valentines day.  The Casology challenge is YOUTH. Ive used  an A Day for Daisy digital stamp with 3 young girls, then   paper pieced their dresses and a heart background.  The colors  are from this weeks Color throwdown.

thinking.. pine-cone

pinecone-thinkThe CASology challenge this week is forest,  since I could not create a bunch of trees in a clean sketch(i tried), I decided to use a pine-cone digi  from Sparkle and sprinkle.. Then  glitter and a desertdiva sentiment thinking of you were added after coloring the digi image.  Here’s my CASology entry.

flakey cold

snowman-emb-flakesThe CASology theme this week is cold…  for me it’s raining outside and altho not snow I think 55 so California degrees is cold.   The embossed snowflakes make this  A Day for Daisies penguinsandnowman  digi look really cold! To compare here’s a  similar card  made  in December with pattern emboss not snowflakes .

Christmas cards for 2016

manger2It’s time to start making Christmas cards  I found a coloring book manger at a pinterest site labeled free coloring pages nativity and am using that image.   The AAA challenge is Christmas and the  CASology challenge  is  space  (lots of space around the simple image).   I’m including  two more cards with the manger image, one with music behind,
