Excited Cat!

I am way behind on blogging again but I will slowly start to catch up soon. Today I have a cute and funny card using a digi image from Nicecrane Designs. Isn't it great? That cat looks soooooooooo excited to see his/her own shadow!! You can find this image in a collection by clicking HERE!

Today is my friend and DT leader Merry's birthday! You can find her blog by clicking HERE! Please be sure to leave her some birthday love! She is also the founder of the Unstampabelle challenge blog which you can find HERE! The DT thought it would be a good idea to surprise her with a special birthday hop full of birthday wishes and creations! You can find all the DT members blogs by going to the Unstampabelle challenge blog and clicking on each of our names which are located on the left side of that page! *Due to time zone differences it may take a few hours for everyone to get their post up*

My project for Merry is this lovely tic tac holder (Merry...this is in the mail and hopefully your package arrives soon!).

I used some digi paper from Nicecrane Designs and the sticker is from The Sticker Store. This is also a great project to make for Easter that is coming up and it would go perfect with our current challenger over at Unstampabelles (I highly encourage you to check it out!)
I found the dimensions for this fun little project HERE! I just changed the theme! :)

Have fun on your hop and HAPPY BIRTHDAY MERRY!!!

Kale Chips

Figured I would branch out and post a "green" recipe today instead of a dessert (I have come to realize I am addicted to sweets)! Some of you probably think I have gone completely bonkers making chips out of a green leafy vegetable....BUT don't knock it unless you try it! LOL! I have been trying to do much better at eating more veggies and I saw this recipe for kale chips and read rave reviews so I thought I would give it a try. It is a simple process of tearing the leaves off the stems, then massage a little olive oil onto the leaves (this makes the leaves more tender) and sprinkle with some seasoning (I used a garlic and wine seasoning from the Melting Pot). Then bake for about 10 - 12 minutes and voila! A green healthy snacking chip! Believe it or not these were kind of addicting! The first bite was a bit strange as I knew what I was eating...then the second bite I thought wasn't too bad....the third bite even tastier...before I knew it half the bowl was gone! LOL! If any of you brave souls are interested click HERE for the recipe!
