It's fall and I've been feeling the baking itch. I love fall cooking - it's a time for stews, soups, and lots of baking. So this past weekend I whipped up four loaves of banana bread and an chocolate ameretti cake for a special someone's birthday. My grandma, who is in town, also got her culinary on, and made her signature chicken curry, which is also the perfect fall food!
Before I drool over my keyboard, how about I tell you more about our DYSU challenge? We're trying to make use of our Scraps.
This week I got to play with a whimsical digi from Pink Cat Studios. I love this little tree. I also used our current Princess Dianne Papertrey Challenge as a color inspiration. She challenged us to use Red, her favorite color.
Stamps: (Dots & Delights Series: Pretty Birds in Trees) Pink Cat Studio
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Pure Poppy, True Black) Papertrey Ink; (Basic Card Stock - White) Recollection; (Summer Days) Echo Park
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Glossy Accents) Rangers; (Baker's Twine - Pure Poppy) Papertrey Ink; (Summer Days - Element Stickers, Alpha Stickers) Echo Park
A bunch of fun layers that are fresh - perhaps too fresh for this fall weather. But I thought the black & white on the digi made the bird stand out. I do like this Dots & Delights series - cute stuff, isn't it?
The Echo Park Alpha Stickers and Element Stickers are from my stash. I like the alpha stickers - they are just the right size for cards. Also, the black card stock is a scrap and I decided a post card is just as good as a card card :)
So how about hopping over to the DYSU blog to go see what the other girls are u to. I'm sure it's pretty easy to come play along on this challenge, since every has stash, right?!
