Floral Song

I think this is my favorite card so far. I really enjoyed watercoloring my birds and flowers! You might not be able to see it very well, but I have a thin white piece of card stock glued (under the birdcage where you can’t see it) which extends out to the right a bit, to support the circular feel I was going for.

Aren’t they precious? This one is a Birthday Card for my mom, soon to be 81 years young.

This card uses the paper from Heartfelt Creations Cascading petals – the “I Want it All” package included the die for the birdcage and the birds as well. using the outline die, I created the shaped card, putting fold about one inch from the tops of the cage. I the. Cut another of the outline, and put the birdcage on top of it. Then the circle was placed beneath that piece, and the top of the card, to hide it a bit. Then I colored my birds and the flowers, added some dimensional wisteria and more leaves to round it out (pun intended, lol!). You will note, I avoided adding a ribbon or bow – very difficult for me, almost like asking me not to add flowers or glitter!!

The inside has light blue paper with a sticker sentiment.

Enjoy!

Mother’s Day Breakfast – Keto style

I had a great Mother’s Day – and I hope you did too! We started off with waffles & crushed strawberries for breakfast, and then my husband and one of my sons made a lovely dinner of quiche, arugula salad, a special stacked or layered jello, and finished off with keto style banana splits!

Doesn’t that look yummy?!! You start off with your typical Chaffee (one egg, 1/2 c shredded mozzarella, and 1 Tbsp almond flour) topped with crushed strawberries sweeties with just a touch of monk fruit, and all topped with real whipped cream, again sweetened with powdered monk fruit. It was delicious, let me tell you!

By the way, I get my Lakanto Monk Fruit and my Almond flour from Costco, and I only use extra large EB eggs. One Chaffee recipe makes two chaffles. It’s my favorite go-to food now a days!

The banana split includes banana, strawberry, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and whipped cream. Delish!
