Tasty Tuesday!

I got an egg roll recipe from my pal Corry and blended it with another recipe I found online to give me an approximate on quantity and also I wanted to try baking them instead of deep frying. I don't even own a deep fryer!! I must say they are quickly becoming our new favorite thing to eat! The best part is you can make up a bunch and freeze them for later and the fillings can be very versatile...throw whatever in them and enjoy! :)

Typewriter Happy Birthday!

I created this card using distress inks and stamps from two Lawn Fawn Stamp sets (Bake Me A Cake and Just My Type). Then used my EK Success punch for the notebook edge (red piece) and added a piece of ruler ribbon I received from my pal Michelle...THANKS! Attached with my tiny attacher and colored the image with my Copics. This is the first time I have ever created my own background paper with stamps and I love how it came out! Let me know what you think as I always appreciate your lovely comments! :)

Smile Book Box

This is a box I made for Jeanne along with a set of thank you cards which I will show at a later date. She proudly displays this box in her living room filled with the lovely items you all sent to cheer her up!! While I'm talking about Jeanne I should give you an update. She is halfway through her chemo treatments (she needs 4 total and just completed the second round) and is doing very well. The first week and a half after a treatment is a bit rough but then she said she feels pretty good. She is staying extremely positive and she continues to thank each and every one of you for your support! You have no idea how much the items you sent mean to her!! :) She did lose all her hair before the second treatment but she was prepared for that as they told her it would definately happen. When I first saw her bald head I couldn't believe how perfectly round it was and no moles or anything...I actually thought she looked really good!! So I told her atleast she has a great looking head for being bald!!
