Foodie Friday friends like you take my breath away

Gosh...this week has just flown by!  Perhaps because we've been trying to play catch up from our trip or maybe life is just like that sometimes. 

I fell in love this week...with this coat dress from Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger:


Is this not divine?  Love that flirty collar and hemline.  And did you see that soft pink background?  sigh....

I used this sketch from Card Positioning Systems 226


I was in a frilly girl mood after swooning over that coat dress so this sketch took on a life of it's own.


I didn't have any black roses so I colored them with my Copic marker.  That awesome sentiment is from Rubbernecker Stamps


Card size - 5" x 5"
Supplies:
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics, Crate Paper, PTI
Accessories - Spellbinders Scalloped Circle dies, seam binding (I colored it with reinker), paper roses colored with Copic marker, Martha Stewart leaf punches, string pearls

Now for a sweet treat!  My DH and I have been on a bit of a "I gained 4 lbs. on vacation and I can't eat a thing diet".  ;-)  Poor thing was craving something sweet so I tried this recipe from King Arthur flour.  Can you say to die for?  I mean, chocolate, peanut butter AND Reeses' PB cups...what's not to love?


Yay!  I put the recipe on a Google Doc so all you have to do is go to the Recipes link at the top of the page and click the link under the photo.

Pin It!
