Dinner, Dessert, and a Card! :)

Happy Saturday!!! Hope your all having a GREAT day.. ours has been nice.. went to the schools family fun run today! Justin and I did the 3 miles.. Amanda and Steve did the 1 mile! Then home...errands, creative time! and a YUMMY (if I do say so myself! dinner! and dessert!!) I felt like pasta.. really I felt like a trip to Italy.. BUT that wasnt gonna happen so I settled for yummy pasta and a glass of wine! :)

Here is what I whipped up - the boys are happy there is leftovers! You know it must be pretty good if they are happy for left overs! :) it is my own recipe, pasta, fire roasted tomatos, ital. sausage, wine, roasted pepper, onion, mushrooms, artichokes, fresh basil from our garden, kalmata olives, and Parm. Cheese.. and some garlic of course! a little butter too.. shhh dont tell my diet! :)

Then for dessert I whipped up some of these yummy mini cherry cobblers.. I added some nuts, vanilla, and cinnamon to the cherries.. and made the biscuits with bisquick, van. soy milk (shhh dont tell!) and some sugar.. Yep boys are happy left overs of these too! :)

and finally a card share! Leah issued a challenge for our PTI blog group to make a flat one layer card... harder then I thought!! But I was happy to get it done!

For my card I was inspired by Cheryl she used Friends til the End.. and then I remembered a card I made a few years ago, and used the same LO basically.. I used my glimmer chalks to color it, and edge it.. also used my new Spica glitter pens all over too!! I was pretty happy with it! Amanda loved it.. hmmmmm maybe she will get it! :)

Thanks for a FUN challenge Leah! Now to find out what our group #4 is!! My turn is coming next for #5 or #6.. I gotta get thinking!!
