Embossing in Chestnut and a Recipe Share!

Hi!  Happy Tuesday!  I hope your week has had a great start!  I am listening to howling wind and there is foretasted some snow today!  At least it's not the big storm they were calling for yesterday!  Ariel is at school and it's just Carter and me!  He is sitting on the potty and watching the cars movie (he sits so nicely than), I will outlast him!  He keeps getting naked lately and taking off his diaper!  I figure I  may as well start potty training and slowly work on it.  And work on me not getting frustrated! 

Today I have  another card to share with you using the getting ready stamp by Hero Arts.  I also got some Zing chestnut embossing powder!  But this one so gave me a run for my money.  This card is far from perfect and I considered not sharing it but I figure I may as well.  I tried over and over to emboss the image (onto some cute paper by my mind's eye) with no mistakes around it that I may have used a lot of this pp up!  I think I may just go back to the aqua powder..


I don't know what it is about this image but it just calls out to me to ruffle ribbon!

And I may as well enter this into the Birthday Challenge at ABC DT Challenge!!  I love Birthday challenges!

I also wanted to share with you a muffin recipe that we are very much enjoying here.  Ariel asked me about Strawberry Banana muffins and I thought oh what a good idea, so I googled it and found a great recipe.  I love that it's different and doesn't call for chocolate chips!  I like to have muffins in the freezer for school, to have at home when they need a snack, or that I can quickly put some in my purse when we are running out for them. You can find the recipe here, I try to use very ripe banana's.  I can't wait until Strawberry picking season to make them!  It will be even more amazing!

(Of course the ones that are left and not frozen hardly show the strawberries!!! lol!

Oh and I wanted to share a funny photo of my two. Last Thursday when I stopped at the mall on the way home from the playplace,  I only had my single stroller with me.  Ariel was upset and had to sit in the stroller so I had both kids in it.  I got a lot of strange looks but whatever!  The last store I went to was new to our city and kinda warm.  The kids were quiet but I thought it was at the wonder of what store.  All of a sudden I look and Carter's head is bobbing!  We were close to the long line for changerooms and the girls in line were laughing so hard at Carter fighting sleep!  Here is both of them after mommy tires them out:

They love each other so!  I hope you try the muffins, so good!  Hope your week is great!
