Blow me down, I could not resist--I have 3 super-fab card designs to share with ya' today! AND, I found my Pumpkin Dip recipe! I'm just full o' crafty goodness, eh?! *chuckle*
Well, ready or not, here it comes! *chinkle*
So, how many folks have ever considered turning the scarecrow into a GIRLY scarecrow? Isn’t Becky’s unique take just darling? Clever girl! I love how she trimmed a scrap of Madeira Green paper with deckle scissors to make the “grass”, and the little frame from the Rectangle Frames Set was perfect to make this “Miss you” sign! So soft and sweet!
I’D RATHER BE STAMPING!
Genius, doncha’ think? This just cracked me! Elena masked off the teacup that normally sits atop the books, and stamped them a mile high, one stack on top of the next. Then, she masked off the bottom of the stack to stamp Boris—yes, that’s BORIS behind that stack! I can’t stop giggling over this one!
This design is positively PERFECT for mass producing—I think we all sometimes forget that you don’t always have to color something in to get a great look, and this demonstrates that point wonderfully!
Aren't these terrific? The Muses always get my creative juices flowin', I tell ya'!
And, now, as promised, that pumpkin dip recipe:
PUMPKIN DIP (Beware, this makes a LOT of dip; you can always halve the recipe if need be!)
2 bricks of cream cheese, softened
1 large can pumpkin
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. pumpkin pie spice
1 lb. powdered sugar (yes, an entire pound; I never said this was gonna be low-cal, peeps!)
Mix all the above with a mixer in a big bowl. Serve with some crispy apple slices. Or gingersnaps. Or both. *chuckle*
I bring this to potlucks in the Fall, make it at Christmas time, and give to friends/family in pretty little ceramic serving bowls. It's always a big hit, and disappears fast! Enjoy!
