card size is 5x7
White card stock for base. Patterned paper is from More To Adore- Close To My Heart. Then a layer of cocoa card stock and layered with randomly stamped flower images from Rustic Flowers in cocoa, hollyhock and baby pink.
Drum roll please.... Shannon K- and the bonus for me is she recommended a site that i was not familiar with!
A new site I have just found is this onehttp://globalgourmet.com/They had the best recipe for chocolate cupcakes.I also use All Recipes too. I like them because they have all of the reviews from people that have actually made the recipe. I use that one the most.Love the ribbon and thanks for the chance to win it.
Shannon- please email me with your mailing address and I'll get these sent off to you!
Thanks to everybody who gave me some new websites- I can't wait to browse them!

I made this card for my dad. The base of the card is made out of clear acetate, or transparency. The image is stamped in twilight and the stamp is from Alfresco- Close To My Heart. I also used turquoise Stickles and Adhesive Gems by Mrs. Grossman. These are cool. I replicated the same image on the inside but just colored in the outside of the stamp, leaving space for my to stamp the word "dad" on the inside of the shape. The stamps are from Whimsy Caps- Close To My Heart and were stamped in cocoa.
We had a great lunch today to celebrate Father's Day. We started with blueberry & blue cheese spinach salad, honey mustard grilled chicken served with risotto rice, brussel sprouts and for dessert, an orange cream sherbet dessert. Yum-O!
Hope you enjoyed it and had a great Father's Day dad!
I'm offering up some blog candy because this post marks my 50th post since the inception of this blog. Because I'm always looking for great new recipes, its always nice to have new sites to reference. Some of my favorites include: elsie, allrecipes and recipezaar.
Leave me a comment including your favorite recipe website, and your name will be drawn to win my favorite new ribbon rounds by Paper Salon. I love these colors right now and thought I'd share them with you. If you don't have a favorite recipe site, drop me a note anyway- you're name will still be put in the drawing! I'll draw & post Friday night.

I made this card from a color combination suggested by scrapitude. I totally suggest going there. It contains all Close To My Heart ink colors- you select a color, or combination of colors and it will suggest what to pair with your choice. There is also a random selection. It is very cool.

I made these two cards for my two cousins, Mike & Lindsay, who graduated from High School yesterday. Mikes card is above. I used the alfresco stamp set and small pleasures paper from Close to My heart For Lindsay's card below, I used rustic flowers and spunky greetings for the congrats. colors are kiwi and ocean. Seemed like a weird combo until I tried it- I was really happy with the results.
