Chocolate Chip

basket 027Our challenge this week is to use Chocolate Chip w/Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky or Tangerine Tango/Always Artichoke and added piece – cannot make a regular size card (4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″).  I am glad you are here – you probably saw great things over at Helen’s blog.  I broke down and PAID for directions for the cute little bag (I always try to figure it out!) – they were very good directions and I will make several more for family members for Easter – so easy and cute!  The bunny is cased from 2 different sets of  directions.  Leave me a comment if you want links to either.  Thanks for poppin in – I’m last this week but if you missed anyone loop back to the beginning with our faithful leader Robbie.

Raspberry Ripple

rasp 023

Challenge this week: Raspberry Ripple w/Old Olive & Blushing Bride or Crumb Cake/Perfect Plum and the added twist – Christmas card.  I decided “why fight it?” as I prepared my card early (on Saturday) – the weather forecast was calling for another round of winter – we got off easy in Winchester this time!  Actually, I’m a snow bunny at heart – so my philosophy is usually “bring it on!” – my elbow, on the other hand, is still aching from shoveling the last 20 inch dousing we got.  I enjoyed doing a lot of crafting due to another snow day – yeah! You probably arrived from Joni’s blog – thanks for stopping by, now continue with the hop by heading over to Sandy’s Ice Mountain Designs – bet she wishes the ice would yield to spring :-).   Recipe: Best of Snow, bracket punch,  cherry cobbler baker’s twine, rhinestone, { retired ~ tree: Flaky Friends,  snowflakes: It’s Snow Time, Short & Sweet, hologram highlights, old olive ribbon, button}.
