SC246 - Soccer Boy & Quick Bread

Edited to add: Thanks for the emails and comments about the quick breads...Please leave an email address if you would like the recipes as I have them on Word documents.


Yeah! I finally got to escape to my room for a bit.
But first, my DH left me a note this morning that says he needs "nut bread" for work tomorrow morning. I think he thinks I'm a bakery! Nut bread to him means a whole big tray of a variety of breads for his inventory crew. A well fed inventory crew is a happy inventory crew. :-) I made 4 kinds...butternut squash (in the center), yes, I baked the squash!, applesauce raisin pecan (bottom left and going clockwise) Hawaiian Banana bread, and date nut. Done...happy husband and now that I can stamp, happy wife.

If you'd like any of the recipes, just email me with your email address.

I wanted to make a "boy" card for our grandson. He's all of 4 and just finished soccer season. He actually looks alot like little Billy from Pink Cat Stamps. Our granddaughter went into great detail explaining his soccer uniform to me so I could get it just right. "Blueish, greenish shirt, no number on it, black shorts, black shoes and a black and yellow ball." I think I got it!


Have I said how much I LOVE Crate Paper? It's great for boxes but the colors are just awesome and so beautifully complimentary. These papers are all from the Samantha pack but I think they suit a boy just fine. The black is SU. I colored him with my Prismacolors markers. I got those silver dimensionals thingys at Big Lots for about $1. I covered the ball with Crystal Effects and popped it up on dimensionals. I stamped his name with JustRiteStampers.
Thanks for stopping by...off to try and get another project finished. ;-)

Pin It!
