Meet Me on Monday

Wow!  Check me out!  Not only am I posting it, I'm getting it in early.  Of course, if I didn't do it now, it wouldn't get done but that's beside the point!!

1. What is the best dish you can make?
I wouldn't say it's my best (there's the chili that a TX friend of mine scoffed at because I put beans in it.  Then she tried it and changed her mind) but I had the grand champion 4H cake at the county fair when I was a senior in high school.  It was a coconut cake and sold for $2000.  If you're wondering, I only got $10- that's what the GC prize was in any category.

2. How often do you change your sheets?
Usually twice a week, once if we just don't get to it.

3. What is the longest car trip you have ever taken?
A one-way 24hr drive between TX and MD.  We made that trip 4x when I lived in TX.  Once going down, round one year for a Christmas, and back when we moved back to MD after I finished school.

4. What is your favorite fruit?
You KNEW I couldn't get through 5 questions without saying there's more than one answer!  Watermelon is probably my top one but then there are red raspberries to throw a wrench into it.  And grapes.  And blackberries.  And mulberries.

5. Would you rather have breakfast for dinner or dinner for breakfast?
That's easy.  Breakfast for dinner.  LOVE it.  We used to do that occasionally when I was a kid- pudding (the meat kind) and blueberry pancakes for dinner.  YUM.  We don't do it often now but I'd like to think we'll start to more often.

Quick and Dirty Birthday Cards

I realized last night that I owe two little girls birthday cards this and next weekend so before I pack away all of my stamps, I should do them. 

The first is done to the CPS Sketch #186

The second is very similar but done to Card Patterns #83

Both cards were stamped with SU's Birthday Whimsy and embossed with a shimmery EP.  The cakes were stamped with Positively Pink, the balloons just with Versa Mark, and the sentiments with silver ink.  The papers were from Michaels.  The stitching is faux and completed with a silver pen.
