Two 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
It’s been several days since I’ve posted. I was in San Francisco and since i didn’t take my computer, I couldn’t and didn’t post. Here’s one for the Less is More challenge Onelayer – opposite attract, using the ColorThrowdown colors. I think sturdy ,old, and worn boots are the opposite of delicate pretty newly blossomed flowers.
Its cloudy but not raining so its a nice day to enter Tuesday morning sketches with the colors of Color Throwdown. just a simple turquoise background rectangle, silhouette sunflower and 3 butterflies.
I 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.
I’m using the colors of Color Throwdown to make an entry for a Valentine’s day birthday card. Along with this birthday card i made some thinking of you cards, to include as a little gift. I just changed the sentiment ( in the middle jar’s pink heart). The digital stamp is Valentine jar from Bugaboo digital stamps. its hard to see the glitter on the jar lid and a few of the hearts, but its there and looks good in person. I used Photoshop to put the sentiment heart in the middle of the jar.)
Heres the middle ot one of the thinking of you cards
Thought I’d enter AAA cards Winter Chill challenge, the Tuesday Morning Sketches and the colors in Color Throwdown challenge this week. I used a digital stamp from Bugaboo stamps. The background snowflakes were created using the snowflake embossing folder from the Paper Studio. Two kids and a snow and a snowman, three challenges.
Three challenges this rainy southern California Sunday morning, using the colors of this weeks Color Throwdown , the Less is more challenge – New Beginnings, and AAA cards Winter Chill challenge. Spring is a new beginning promising that the winter chill will be gone soon. I hope so seems really cold today. The image is a digital stamp from adayfordaisies titled BirdBlooming.
