Christmas Without Red And Green?!

Digi image is "Country Tree" from Glitterbabe's Art

Today we have a new challenge over at Glitterbabe's and when I first saw we had to make something Christmas related without red or green I panicked! I mean what is Christmas without those colors right? Well, let me tell you I am so grateful for that challenge because it really opened up my eyes to all the non-traditional beautiful colors that can be used at Christmas time! I chose purple, pink and yellow as my non-traditional colors. What do you think?
Of course when you do this challenge don't forget the sparkly stuff...that is a must!
You can go directly to the challenge by clicking

Our sponsor this week is Pizzazz Aplenty and she is offering up a great selection of embellishments! You can see the entire list of what is being offered as a prize over at the Glitterbabe Challenge Blog. Now I gotta brag on this company a bit because the customer service is fantastic!! The owner, Judy, was quick at responding to my e-mails and she even sent loads of freebies! Freebies for ordering over $15, freebies of new stuff she just got in the day I bought by stuff, and even MORE freebies as a Glitterbabe special! WOW WOW WOW!! I was amazed! She was even nice enough to double check to make sure I got sweet! :) My ordered shipped next day and because of the holiday it didn't arrive for two days but I still couldn't believe it was that fast! Her prices are great and shipping is very minimal and with all the freebies it made up for shipping costs! So yeah, I HIGHLY recommend this store!!! :) All the rhinestones I used on my card are from this store and I used a wonderful product called the gel picker to help grab the small rhinestones and it worked like a charm! Never could I have done that with my fingers so thanks Judy...your a real gem! :)

Red Hat Gift!

Here is the gift I was telling you about the other day that goes with my red hat lady card. Isaac's Aunt LOVES coca-cola and vintage stuff so when I saw this red hat vintage coca-cola pocket mirror I just had to get it for her and of course make a cute little holder to go with it. The holder was supposed to be just for presentation but she liked it so much she is using it as the actual holder to keep the mirror in her purse! :)

You can find the tutorial I used HERE!

Mushroom Lasagna

Recipe is from the Taste of Home cookbook
Click HERE to view the recipe.

Mine doesn't look as pretty as the cookbook picture but it sure tasted good!
I am not a huge fan of ground beef so I am always looking for more veggie lasagnas and I pretty much toss mushrooms into everything I eat so this fit the bill perfect for my tastes. Both my parents and my hubby said they would be happy if I made it again! :)
