Anyone Can Make These

OK- peanut butter cookies are not for everyone, I know this.  People love them or hate them.  Same with M&M cookies.  Some people just don’t like them.  I love ’em both though.  My friends mom used to make these peanut butter cookies and I loved them.  I’ve seen other people on the internets use this recipe,, but nobody add the best part (which is mini chocolate chips by the way)!  Its hard to believe but you need 4 (FOUR) ingredients.  Just trust me and try it.

Here it is:

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 large egg
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 12oz bag mini chocolate chips

Preheat over to 325 degrees.  Mix egg, sugar, and peanut butter until well blended- fold in chocolate chips.  Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Remove from fridge and roll into tablespoon size balls.  Place on cookie sheet a couple inches apart from each other.  Flatten with you hand or the bottom of a glass cup.  Bake 17 to 19 minutes until slightly brown and yummy looking.  Cool on sheet for a few minutes before removing to a wire rack.  Enjoy!

I Made Pencils

Card Creations: Favorite Occasions is coming out in the Fall (Nov. 16 in case you wanna camp out at Barnes and Noble) and I’m going to have 2 cards in it!  Its so exciting!  This is one of the ones that didn’t make it… Poor little guy.  So cute and no love 😦   Just kidding!  They get tons of submissions and and I am HONORED to have 2 cards selected!  I do love love love this little guy though.  My latest love is October Afternoon cardstock and this one is from the Report Card collection.  I used my Labels 2 Nesties to make the centerpiece with some Very Vanilla Bazzill and Garnet cardstock.  Then I made my little guy pencils using my Word Window punch from Stampin Up!  I definitely wanna make more of them for more projects in the future!  I just cut three windows of each color and used paper snips to make the parts and layer them up.  Enjoy!

Birthday Bling

I found this fantastic sticker at my scrapbook store (I love you The Scrapbook Store!).  That whole thing around my center sentiment is a green sparkly encrusted sticker.  Isn’t it great?  Its from Making Memories and I think I’ll have to go we what else they have like this.  I used my favorite paper for the moment called Mr and Mrs from Teresa Collins and I have managed to strech one sheet of this pretty dang far!  I’ve also used almost the last of my precious Kiwi Kiss…. I should go check and see if thats one of the returning old In Colors at Stampin Up…. my brain knows its not true but I’m gonna pretend I can’t remember.  If I give you this card for your birthday, act surprised ok?

Beaded Thank You

A quickie today!  I found these fabric letters at my scrapbook store and I love them!  I love red/black/white together, even though it may be a little outdated 🙂  The beads are Stampin Up!- I drew my shape and then sewed them on in the pattern.  I love this paper too- its Theresa Collins, who I hadn’t heard of I’ll be honest- but when I found this paper I bought a bunch of her other stuff!  Enjoy!

Sweet Sunday Sketch

Sweet Sunday Sketch…. I like playing these sketch games sometimes 🙂  For right now Karen and Jen’s sketches are my favorite. They give you definition but still leave room to work with.  Edges can be scalloped, wavy, straight…. objects can be flowers, buttons, hearts…. I seem to be doing well with that type of instruction 🙂  Here is last weeks sketch and my card:

I used October Afternoon Fly a Kite and this awesome Verve sentiment that is so versatile… I love it!  It can be for a sympathy card, a new baby card, a get well card…. its greatness!

Happy Birthday Lawanna

Happy Birthday to Lawanna!  She is one of the co-owners of the doggie daycare that our dogs go to: PoochesPlace.  Doggie day care is absolutely awesome for those with pooches who have never tried it.  They play their hearts out and then crash in the car on the way home.  I didn’t see her on her birthday so the night before when we went to pick up our pups I took her this card:

and this cake:

Which truly is the best coffee cake EVER and you can find the recipe here:

Make it.  Today.

Its all about love baby

Its bloghop day again at Bugaboo! I apologize in advance for the not great picture of this card today.  My husband and I have not been able to coordinate camera schedules the last few days and I am using the ancient digital camera.  This week its all about the LOVE over at the Bugaboo Challenge Blog.  Check out to see what you can win!  You should have ended up here after visiting Sandye’s blog.  I used Flower Tag #5 and colored it and cut it out.  I them mounted it on a circle Nestie of Bazill Garnet Cardstock and went over the black areas with Diamond Stickles.  I covered a scalloped note card with black Cricut swirls and then placed my image in the middle.  I finished it by stamping Much Love into the circle.  Its hard to read I know!  I am pleased with the look!  Its not my norm and I like it!  Next head over to Angie’s awesome blog to see what she came up with!
