Deer Winter Scene Happy Birthday Handmade Card

I created this card for a coworker. I really like how this card turned out. I create the clouds by using cardstock and blue ink. I then added light and brown inks. I handstamped the trees across the image. I then handstamped the deer onto the image. The deer stamp is from Clear Dollar Stamp from the Deer Season stamp set. I added some white snow on the trees by using my white gel pen. Paper and ribbon added. Thanks for looking at my designs.

Christmas Star Album

My mom and I created Christmas Star Albums today. Our first star albums and we are very happy as to how they turned out. It looks like a little photo box, but when you open it ups it displays a beautiful star. I used green, red and pink cardstocks for my base then added DCWV christmas paper. All that is needed is to just add photos and embellishments. These are so fun to put together. I do plan to create more of these albums.

Double Chocolate Brownie Biscotti

I made these double chocolate brownie biscotti's this evening. I always grab one or two at my local coffee shop. These turned out very good. I didnt not have nuts or white chocolate on hand, but still very good. I was going to sprinkle some white chocolate on top as well. Next time I will add nuts and white chocolate. The recipe is from PA.Granny on AllRecipes site.
I just melted some chocolate chips and spread on the tops of the biscotti and then drizzled some chocolate on top. Great for gift baskets.
