Am I a Teenager Again?
July Thank You Cards - Hot Off The Presses

Not Snow Much Fun...

020 copy have the crud.  Ha! I guess a few other Demonstrators came home from convention with a cold or whatever and I was one of them.  Today I went to the store grabbed some cold medicine and some more cough drops and came home and went to bed, I have been go-go-going since I got back from convention and maybe that was not the best thing. Toby loves when I nap during the day, he is a good spooner, or snuggler.

So I didn't get any work done today, but I do feel a bit better tonight, still stuffed up, but no aches or anything, so I am sure it is just a cold, a summer one in Arizona, no less, not fun...but hey, it waited till I got back and that I am thankful for.

At convention we swap with such amazing demonstrators and the reasoning behind it is to come back with awesome ideas for our businesses but more important I feel it is to get to meet people, I always try to thank the person and look at them when I swap as my mind is horrible but I want to try to remember every face I have swapped with.

This is one of the cards we did at stamp club this weekend and I got a swap from Judi Cayton (thanks Judi - you were so sweet to swap with me!) and I love love love it.  I used the crochet trim ribbon only cause I didn't have enough of the Baja Breeze seam binding that she used on hers, but the card is basically hers.  I also used watercolor paper for my image cause that is my favorite "go-to" paper for watercoloring. Speaking of watercoloring, I want to thank all of you that have purchased my PDF in how to watercolor, I appreciate it so much and I love hearing back from you that you find it easy to follow. Mwah!!

I was trying to get the camera to pick up the dazzling diamonds sparkle.

Tonight for supper I wanted to try something fun and different and quick.  I had picked up some mozarella at the store the other day, it was in a ball, and I wanted to make a tomato, basil, mozarella thing that I have seen on tv or in restaurants, so I googled and it came up caprese salad, but then when I looked better I saw where you could make it into a sandwich so I did, and it was so good.  I just buttered some sour dough bread sprinkled on some rosemary and cooked it on a cookie sheet in a 400 degree oven for about 5 minutes, then took it out and put chopped fresh basil and sliced tomatoes on half of the slices of bread, and the slices of mozarella went on the other halves.  I also sprinkled some olive oil over the tomatoes.  Then they went back in the oven for about ten minutes.  Then I took it, out let them cool a bit, then you just put them together like a sandwich, the cheese side goes together with the tomato side.  I cut them in half and voila' , I felt like a chef.  Jeff and Eric really liked them too, so I will definitely be making it again.

Well as much as I would like to chat it up some more, I am going to hit the hay.

Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks so much for stopping in to see me each day, I hope you know how much it means to me that you do!
