Foodie Friday - It's all about Velvet...ribbon and pie

Sorry I've been AWOL for a couple of days.  My little brother, whom I haven't seen for a few years came for an all too quick visit.  It's so hard being so far away from family but it was so good to see him.

I've got a great gift idea tutorial for you over at the May Arts blog.  Here's a bit of sneak peek. 


I've also been doing a bit of cooking and baking.  Here's a quick and easy and oh so velvety Derby Pie that you can whip up in mere minutes.  It's a staple during Kentucky Derby season.  I'm not even a chocolate chip lover but I can't resist this warm rich pie piled high with real whipped cream.



That's what I'm talkin' about!

You can find the printable recipe for Derby Pie here and at the Recipe Link at the top of the page. You can find the pie crust recipe at the Recipe Link as well.  If you haven't tried it, you really should, you know.  It's super easy and you can freeze so that you can have pie any time.

Last but oh so not least......You want to be sure to check out the Blog Hop going on at the Sparkle and Sprinkle Blog.  Some lucky blog hopper is going to win the Grand Prize of a stamp set of your choice and there are 3 more secret prizes hidden along the hop.

May Arts and Operation Write Home


May Arts Ribbon has paired with Operation Write Home once again to make and send cards for our brave and dedicated men and women who are serving our country.  This time we've created Thank you cards.  Be sure to pop over the May Arts blog to see the cards the DT has created.

I also hosted a group of lovely ladies who together made 107 cards (!) for OWH last Friday evening.  You can see the samples on the MA blog as well.  OWH always needs thank you cards so if you have a few extra minutes to stamp some, I know they'd appreciate it.   Remember, no glitter and no bumpy embellishments.

Many thanks to Diane, Stephanie, Durley, Kay, Krystal, MaryBeth, and Janet.
