Today's challenge is a featured stamper challenge. I chose to case this card from splitcoast user B-gin-r. I kept the same layout and ribbon embellishment, but I changed the color, pattern paper, and sentiment.

I found this pattern paper lying in my scrap pile, so I decided to make a Christmas card with it. I cut my paper and layered it with forest foliage card stock (it’s a retired color) and then I added my ribbon. I stamped my sentiment using my SU snow swirled stamp set and forest foliage ink. I also cut out a snowflake from the pattern paper and adhered it to the lower left corner of my sentiment.





We were invited to a 4th of July party and this is the dessert that I made to take along. I'm known for making great desserts and this one turned out perfect! Everyone wanted to know who made it, so I thought I'd share the recipe with you all.
