ACK! I've been busy stamping...

....that's why there's been no updated post yet today! It's worth the wait (at least I think so), wait till you see what I've been working on. I was so sad that I missed out on the week 3 Unity Bachelor challenge, I DID NOT want to miss it again this week. I just haven't had time to stamp until today. Love the fun family weekends, but it's crampin' my crafting time, LOL! Anyway, this week's challenge was to complete a recipe card. What? Seriously, who has time to make fancy cute recipe cards? Now I want to!
I LOVE to cook and have tons of recipes (although seriously, unless it's baking I rarely follow a recipe. I use it as a guide line, but totally gestimate on amounts. ). I also think I am a pretty good cook. This weekend I whipped up some fabulous lasagna, crablegs, blueberry muffins, and Cesar salad (yes, I make a home made dressing). It was DH's birthday and these are all some of his faves. Aren't I a good wifey-poo?!!!

In challenges like this, does anyone else have the issues of wanting to use every other stamp you don't own on the project. I had so many ideas fly into my noggin and then I'd say, "if only I had that stamp!" Soooo, in using what I have, I decided on this yummy hot cocoa recipe I got from Nichole Heady a few years back. I seriously make my own cocoa every winter now that I have this recipe.

I used lots of Unity stamps-Frame this Alpha, the new scrapbook/collage kit...ect., and Hodge Podge of Happiness. The fun Cosmo Cricket papers, Jolly by Golly were the perfect fit with this project. Wish me luck, I'm hoping to win one of these weeks.
