Garden Vine

Greetings and thank you for stopping by.

Materials:
Elizabeth Craft - Curvy Leaves
Lawn Fawn - Stitched Rectangle Frame
Martha Stewart - Hydrangea punch
Nuvo Crystal Drops - White



I found a great bread recipe on Pinterest and have made regular bread and cinnamon bread using the recipe.  
  I have been taking the bread recipe and cutting it in half to only make one loaf of bread.  If you are making two loaves then you will have to increase the cinnamon sugar mixture.   For the filling I use three teaspoons of cinnamon and about 1/4 cup of white sugar and one teaspoon of flour.  After the bread has risen the first time I roll it out  22 x 5 inches brush the dough using a egg/water mixture.  Then sprinkle on the cinnamon/sugar/flour mixture, start at short end and roll it, sealing the ends and pinching the dough together.  Place it into the greased loaf pan and let rise until about 1" over the bread loaf pan.  
This is the best bread recipe I have ever used.

Monochrome bird on a branch

Greetings, today's design was very easy, to get the bird to stand out I added a black die cut behind the white one.  I have been working in the yard.  Finally our weather has warmed up and my garden is starting to grow.  When we bought the property the garden boxes were already here.

Materials:
Dee's Distinctively - Chickadee
Memory Box - Perched Reed Bird, Nutty Acorn & Woodland Branch
Poppy Stamps - Pine Springs


Broccoli, sage, chives. mint and cauliflower
I used Solo Cups over my cucumber seeds because the birds are eating the seedlings.

Snap peas growing

Rhinestone Birthday

Greetings I have not been making cards lately, ever since Spring arrived I have been busy in the yard.
I thought I would show you some of the plants that are blooming right now.

Too bad the picture does not show the fun rhinestones very well but it sure made a card with a lot of bling.

Happy Mother's Day to everyone and I hope your day is very special.
