Happy Happy Birthday!!!

So recently I've been spending a LOT of time playing with my new stamps from both DeNami Design and Lawn Fawn (and sometimes together since the FABULOUS blog hop they held last weekend!!!)  The DeNami projects will have to wait for now (some of them are for ANOTHER blog hop this weekend, and others are just not quite ready to be shown off!) but here's something that I made with Lawn Fawn's little "Year One" set that I really, really like:

I recently purchased the "Fly a Kite" 6x6 paper pad from My Mind's Eye's Lime Twist line.  Isn't that PP just to DIE for?  I really like that whole paper pad... so bright and cheery!  It was just screaming for some Lawn Fawny goodness to make it awesome!  I also added some fun colored pearls that match colors in the starred PP, and some white grosgrain ribbon... I really wanted to make the white pop on this card!  I finished it off with some faux stitching (thank you new Tim Holtz ruler for helping me measure!) and there it is!  It's fun and cute and totally mailable!!!  I have a few important birthdays coming up, too!  =) 

This card was inspired by two fabulous challenge blogs:

1. Wee Memories Challenge #63 - Dare to Color

2. Tuesday Throwdown #61 - Birthday Cards

I hope everyone is still having a great summer!  I'm slowly coming to the realization that I'm going back to school SUPER soon, and so I've been trying to get ready for that.  I'm really going to miss all of the fabulous crafty time! 

So, I have one more thing to share with you tonight!  I've been doing a LOT of cooking lately, and I love LOVE cooking.  One food that I absolutely love is dill pickles.  And being the kind of person that always wants to make things themselves, I've always wanted to try making pickles but often felt they would be something that was difficult to get right!  Well, THIS RECIPE over at One Perfect Bite is SO easy and makes pickles that are SO delicious that I'm not sure why EVERYONE wouldn't start making their own pickles all the time!  Here's a picture of my (delicious) homemade pickles:

Yum yum yum!  Ok well that's enough for me tonight... thanks for reading!!!  =)  Have a lovely Thursday and weekend and as always thanks for stopping by!  =D
