Yummy Ooooh-ahhhh!

Cleaning off my desktop today I found myself clicking through on links I had saved to investigate at a later date.  It's getting to that time of day...you know how it has been said don't go shopping hungry...well I'm not sure if it applies to looking at blogs with tantalizing recipes but I can tell you this site had me drooling, LOL! I was in search of strawberry grainola and I found this site. Aren't you just salivating over the Strawberry Tofu Icecream?
What happened to the Strawberry Grainola? I have no idea but I did find what I was looking for at this fabulous site.








I can't wait to try this grainola recipe.
Thinking of strawberries reminds me of an old Stampin Up stamp set I have with a cute basket, several fruits and a clever saying too. I have made a wonderful card from that set once upon a time...where oh where is that sample card I saved? Ok so here it is...Yummy Ooooh-ahhhh! It's strawberry season!!!

The strawberries have Crystal Effects on them for added dimension. The inside of the card is fairly simple. Wouldn't this design be cute on recipe cards. Hmmmm maybe we should do a recipe card swap :)

Challenges

Life has been full of challenges but ...hey what I really wanted to talk about though is a a specific challenge, a creative challenge. I found it here and  it inspired me to head down to my craft room. At Diva Coffee Break Designs Julie Semones posted a sketch to inspire us.
I came up with a playful card I named Calvin's Psychedelic Dream for its bright colors, Calvin character and floral design.
Thanks to Diva Coffe Break Designs for the fun challenge.
