When I was designing the stair step card for September to Remember I had stamped and colored extra pumpkins and leaves, and well I couldn't let them go to waste, plus the main pumpkin kept looking at me with that big toothless grin saying "pleash, don't throw me in the trashth, put me, and my little friendsh too on a cardth, pleash!" So here he is. I got the layout from a craft magazine a ways back.
Stamp Set: Autumn Harvest, Grateful Greetings
Paper: Kraft, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Cast-a-Spell DSP
Ink: Basic Black
Misc: 5/16" brads, black and white striped grosgrain ribbon, scallop border punch, watercolor pencils, sansodor and stumps
Speaking of treat, I made the french dip sandwiches again tonight, as well as some smoky green beans, I am trying to make up for last week's crazy eat out fest. Ha!
Look how yummy?
I sent the pic to my BFF Tracy and she thought it was from the Deli, wow now that is a compliment.
Here is the green bean recipe:
Smoky Green Beans
5 slices hickory-smoked bacon, diced
2 – 14.5oz cans of green beans
1 sweet onion, diced
8 oz can tomato sauce
In a large skillet over medium heat, saute bacon and onion together for about 15 minutes, stirring often. Add beans and their liquid; then stir in tomato sauce. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for one hour.
Well that's all for now.
Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping in!

Great Halloween card!
Mmmmm…your dinner looks yummy! I will be trying the recipes soon. Thanks for sharing them! And I'm glad you didn't throw out the lispy little punkin' – he looks so cute on your card. Great coloring, as always.

Wow…my grandmother made those beans about 40 years ago and we never had a name for them. She said her mom made something like them so we called the "Cranner Beans" cuz that's the nationality. Anybody from Yugoslavia in your background? Mary Jo

Hi Mary Jo,
I got the recipe out of a cook book, but it was not like a family cook book, they tasted really good. Jeff said that he has had them before, but I have never made them, and I don't remember having them ever. I will be definitely making them again.
Love the card! I'm going to case it right now so I have it for next year (too late to put in the mail for this year). Your dinner looks delish. What the heck am I making for dinner?
