Multiple Challenge Card!

Hi! This is a card for my dh...his birthday is tomorrow. And believe it or not he actually looked like this image from Artistic Outpost when he was younger! This card was inspired by our QFTD57 challenge and this past week it was Benzi aka Brenda. She is the sweetest gal and has a fabulous gallery. I chose this card to be inspired by. This card is also for the TLC322 challenge and for today`s CAS116 challenge. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

Finally! A Challenge Card!

Hi! I am finally back and I joined in today with the MMTPT142 girls and watercolored these flowers for Kay. I just love the older generation of which I am quickly becoming a member of one! Kay will soon be 91 years old! She has had some health issues and this card will be sent to her to help cheer her up! My flowers were supposed to be tulips but my watercoloring got out of hand so I may have to come in the back door! This also qualifies for Monday`s CAS115 Challenge and today`s CC319 Challenge. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
Hi Sis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Blog Candy!! Yes...this week. :-)

I`m Here! Have You Seen the Decorah Eagles Live Stream??? AMAZING!

Hi All! I have not fallen off the face of the earth...just still not up to par and I don`t like to create when I don`t have good vibes to channel into my work. Hopefully I will have some new projects very soon and I do remember...BLOG CANDY. It`s coming!

One thing that has more than captured my time and heart is the Decorah Eagles Live Stream .
The Raptor Resource Project brings you the Decorah Eagles from atop their tree at the fish hatchery in Decorah, Iowa.

The live video feed is streamed online 24/7. At night an infrared light provides night vision to viewers through the cam. Infrared light is not visible to eagles, they do not see it or know it is there.

I am completely fascinated with these majestic birds and the loving way they care for their offspring. So worth a look!

Click on full screen mode for the full effect!!

I will be back soon!!

UGH!!!!!!! The Dreaded Blue Death Screen!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi my patient and faithful followers! Sorry I have been absent this week but I am having major computer issues due to a Service Pack 1 for Windows 7. Truly is playing havoc with my pc!! Makes a girl want a MAC!
I do have my older computer running finally but was hesitant about hooking up all the bells and whistles (camera, printer, etc) just to have to change over again.
So! I will just have to make up for it when I get it back and up and running! Maybe a bit of BLOG CANDY!! I think its about time again!!
My dh is sounding quite like a bullfrog and I hope I don`t pick that up on top of already not feeling well.
But I am not the scheme of things with so many things going on in the world I truly count our blessings.
Please give to the Red Cross for the Japan relief fund. Every little bit helps. My heart goes out to all involved.Prayers couldn`t hurt either!
I hope everyone has a great weekend. I cannot believe it...I have on the ac today as temps hit over 80!! More springlike weather is supposed to return on Sunday...I hope so!!
I hear lawn mowers already...I guess it is about that time. I am still in the planning stages of flower and vegetable gardening! Mowing will come soon enough.
Ok...remember to tell someone you love them!! Such a small thing and yet such an important one.
And always remember...I love all of you!! Talk again soon!!
I even received a Stylish Blogger Award I will be posting!! Smiles to Corie and Peggy!
Hugs, Judi
Hi Sis, Andrew, and Jason!!
And a shout out to Nan!!

Triple Challenge Card and Some Whining! LOL

This is the card I did for today`s MMTPT136 challenge. Today we are going to the Roxbury to dance! I will be doing the cupcake shuffle! This card will be going to Roxie as a thank you for all the time she spends finding us fabulous sketches each and every week! We appreciate you Roxie! I chose SC68. This is also for today`s CC313 challenge. Fabulous color combo Karen!!
Do you ever have a day when you have an idea in your head and you just can`t seem to get it across to your card? UGH! I had that kind of day. Then when I finally got to a point where I liked it I could not for the life of me get a good picture!! This is much too bright and none of my shading around the main image shows!! And the cupcake has large shard glitter as the icing and that is not showing well either. It was going to end up in the round filing cabinet but Miss Peggy saved the day. She told me to put my big girl panties on and get on with it!! LOL In the scheme of things it is just a card and a picture of a card. Just writing it has made me feel better. I can take a breath and go on to to something else. Thanks for listening!
And thanks for stopping by!! Hope you have a lovely evening!!
Hi Sis and Andrew!!!
Til next time!!

Double Challenge Card and Friday Chatter!

This is the card I did for today`s F4A54 challenge to use a good luck charm for St. Paddy`s Day! I loved this image in non-traditional colors from The Graphics Fairy. I printed it twice and cut out the flower and popped it up. I pierced the corners and then sanded them. This card is also in honor of our new QFTD50 and the winner is Luv Flowers aka Kim! I truly love Kim`s unique style and am always inspired by her fabulous gallery! She also leaves us all sincere comments. Congrats Kim! I am thrilled you are our Queen this week! I chose this card to be inspired by. Have fun Kim!! Thanks for looking and have a fabulous Friday!
Hi Sis and Andrew!!
So what are your plans this weekend? Our dgd is coming to spend the night. We will be working on a school project...a building of the Globe Theater. Wish us luck on this one! LOL We may just have to take some photos of this. :-)
I am nostalgic and a bit weepy today as it is my late Mom`s birthday. Not a day goes by that I don`t think of her. I love you Mom!!

This is my second card for today`s WT312 challenge to use POLKA DOTS. I watercolored my dots tree using distress inks and an aquabrush and added a sentiment. Another easy peasy card! :-) Thanks again for looking and have a wonderful day!

Hi again Sis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Polka Dot Challenge Card!!

Easy Peasy card for today`s WT312 challenge to use POLKA DOTS! As an aside ...I love the phrase easy peasy as I love the Two Fat Ladies cooking show and Jennifer Paterson who was a brilliant British chef said this in her fabulous accent each show. What this has to do with polka dots? I guess they both make me happy! LOL Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

5 Challenges!! And beautiful weather!!!

This is a card I did today for five challenges! First I have to congratulate Karen aka RedBugDriver for she is our new Queen For A Day!! She has a gallery filled with beautiful cards to get your mojo going!! Not only is she talented but she is one of the sweetest gals on here always leaving us such heartfelt comments. We love you Karen! So I finally settled on this card to be inspired by. Enjoy your much deserved reign gf! The second challenge is Friday`s F4A53 to be inspired by the islands. I thought these flowers looked a bit tropical. The third challenge is today`s IC273 to be inspired by this gorgeous online site called Serena and Lily. I chose the Ruby Collection which was for the nursery. The card is also for this week`s  Stamp Something challenge to use flowers. I also included this in the Day`s of Our Lives gallery. I just love this paper from Graphic 45 and the new toys I used from PTI. :-) Thanks for looking and have a fantastic weekend. Our Carolina blue skies are here and it could not be any prettier!! Hope it is nice where you are!
So what are you reading? Would love to know! Peggy and I just read The Widower`s Tale by Julia Glass and enjoyed it so much we are now backing up and reading her previous novel called Three Junes.
I am also anxious to delve into a book I recently got called Inner Excavation by Liz Lamoreux. I belong to her blog and find her fascinating! Her book says Explore Your Self Through Photography, Poetry and Mixed Media. Her book is available through her website.
Another interesting book is Water Paper Paint by Heather Smith Jones. Exploring creativity with watercolor and mixed media. I highly recommend them both! Also available on or Barnes & Noble.
Have a fun filled and creative weekend!
Hi Sis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hugs, Judi

 This is a triple challenge card. First it is in honor of our Featured Stamper this week who is StampGroover! Congrats Cookie! I so love your clean style!! Your gallery is filled to the brim with sweet eye candy!! Enjoy your time in the spotlight! This card also qualifies for today`s CAS107 Challenge to make your own background. I used an embossed and torn panel for my bg. I also used a Spica Copic Clear Pen to add a bit of glitter to the embossed sections but sadly it does not show in my photo. I also included this card in the Days of Our Lives gallery as this card could be used just as a feel good card or for a special occasion. Thanks for looking! I hope you enjoy my card and your day!

Hi Sis!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wishing Well Cake Pics!!

I just had to show pics in and out of the pan of the wishing well cake! In the pan shows the crusty goody that you would have not otherwise seen.
YUMMOOOOOOOOOO!! I`ll eat a piece for you!

Tomorrow I will make my oatmeal bread...I had planned on making it today but forgot to pick up bread flour which is necessary. This is another winner. It makes 2 loaves but you will need them cause this won`t last!!!

Oatmeal Bread
2 Cups Boiling Water                       1 teaspoon salt
1 Cup Oats (old fashioned)            1 Tablespoon Butter
3/4 Cup Molasses                            1 Yeast Cake
4 or 5 cups BREAD flour

Pour boiling water over oats. Add molasses (spray the measuring cup with oil and it will glide right out!), salt, and butter. Let cool. Dissolve yeast and 1 spoon of sugar in 1/2 cup lukewarm water. Let proof while 1st mixture cools to warm not hot. Add yeast. Add Flour...usually takes me the full 5 cups for the right consistency...which is doughlike but not so sticky you have trouble getting it out.
Spoon into 2 bread pans that have been greased and floured. Let rise until double. I cover mine and put in a warm location. Check in 1 hour...sometimes takes longer. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool some before cutting or it will fall apart. This is a dense,moist bread...delicious with butter from the oven!! Enjoy!!!

Happy Birthday to Me !!

Hi Peeps!! It is my birthday today!! I plan on a quiet day of reading and whatever suits my fancy. I am making myself a Wishing Well Cake which I will give you the recipe to. This is not for those watching calories, carbs, or health but who would want a birthday cake to do that?
This is from my Aunt Mabel (who has sinced pass) and was a fine cook.
Wishing Well Cake

1 cup Crisco              3 tsp almond extract
2 cups sugar            1/2 tsp salt
5 eggs                       2 cups all purpose flour

Blend sugar and crisco. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add extract and salt. Gradually add flour. Bake ABOUT an hour in a 325 degrees oven. It may take a bit longer but test in one hour. I use a greased and dusted with flour bundt pan. Back when we used to make it they used a tube pan.
The recipe calls for a glaze of 1 cup powdered sugar and 4 tsp water but the cake is so good and the top is so nice and crusty without we never used it.
If you like a dense, moist, crusty topped almond flavored pound will be in heaven.

Thanks again to Peggy who made my birthday extra special.
I especially miss you today Mom...although there is not a day that goes by that I don`t miss or think about you.
Hi Sis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Until next time......

QFTD42 Challenge Card and Snow Forecast! :-)

A big congrats to Pat (foxy67) for being crowned Queen for the Day! She is one of the sweetest ladies here at SCS always leaving us comments and inspiring us with her lovely gallery! Read all about it here .I used a combination of Pat`s cards to come up with this one and I wanted her to have the roses to think of me. Sorry I was late to the party Pat! Hope you like the card. I just could not get a good picture of this card...I love it in real life.
SNOW! Go grab your milk and bread!! LOL They are forecasting a snow storm here by the time we get up tomorrow morning. We are hoping we are far enough west and north to miss the aftermath of changing over to sleet and freezing rain. I so don`t want to lose power! And then I do have the worry of dh making it home from work...hopefully they will get to go home a bit earlier if it gets bad. Wishing all of you in the storm area a safe and trouble free week! I do love the snow and so do our fur kids!!
Hugs until next time!!

Humbling Experience!

Hi All! Hope each and every one of you had a fabulous New Year`s Eve and Day! We stayed at home and watched the Twilight Zone Marathon and The Two Fat Ladies marathon on the Cooking Channel. Fun!
Just had to give a shout out of thanks to the incredible women at Splitcoaststampers who included not only my cards but even my entire gallery in the Year End Favorites Thread found here and here. I was surprised and thrilled beyond words as the women who gave me mention are some of the very best talent at SCS and I so value their opinion. If you have never been to SCS and you are involved in cardmaking, scrapbooking, or even photography you need to pay them a visit! A more caring or supportive group of women you will never find. And you will never tire of the endless eye candy that awaits you each and every day!!
I am humbled and honored to call myself a member of this fabulous community!! I hope to be sharing some cards with you very soon.
Hugs to all !! Judi
