Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Grateful Bunch

Mornin’, y’all!  It’s Saturday and I’ve got a cute little card to share with you today.  I was late getting started making a card so I needed something quick.  I’d had this little card in my head for a minute, so it seemed like a great time to implement it!

Quick.  Fast.  Easy.  Kind of the theme for today.  Along those lines – if you heard of an appliance that could make a dish in about an hour – one that usually takes 24 hours, you’d think that was a good deal, right?  Well, I’ve been hearing that electric pressure cookers could do just that.  Here in the Deatherage household, we eat a lot of beans.  Pinto Beans and Red Beans (and rice), specifically.  And those require me to think about them the night before, put the beans on to soak overnight and then get them in the crock pot first thing in the morning.

Enter….the Electric Pressure Cooker.  I succumbed to a QVC commercial and got one delivered.  Upon reading the included cook-book, lo and behold….a recipe for black beans.  30 minutes.  And the recipe said “1 pound dry black beans”.  No mention of soaking.  I was ecstatic.  So, I put my pintos on, using the called for amount of liquid.  Set for 30 min.

Thirty minutes later – crunchy beans.

Reset for another 30 minutes.

Still.  Crunchy.

30 more minutes.

Finally ended up with just-about-right-beans after 1 hour and 45 minutes of cooking.  A pretty significant improvement over 24 hours, sure.  But…worth the amount of real estate it takes up?  Maybe not.  So….it’s probably going to be on it’s way back to QVC. 😉

This little card, though – you really could get it done in 30 minutes!!  Just do a little quick watercolor, add a Grateful Bunch Flower and a sentiment from Happy Pants.  And you’ve got a little note card all ready to go.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Happy Pants Balloon Celebration Birthday

Good morning – here we are on the cusp of another weekend!  And Sunday night is Oscar night!  Do you have a pick for Best Movie?  I’ve only seen two of the nominees – The Martian and Mad Max Fury Road.  I’m a serious non-fan of the entire Mad Max franchise (a little too possible a future for my taste!) so, I’m pretty much hoping that one doesn’t take it.  The Martian was a great fun book to read and the movie was great.  And, of course, watching Mr. Matt Damon for an hour and a half doesn’t suck, right??  So….that’s my pick! 🙂

Today’s card is another birthday card!  I used the Sale-A-Bration set called Party Pants and the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  And, just for fun, I pulled out the tiny little balloon punch from Party Punch Pack in the Occasions Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Friends, Flowers and Party Pants Birthday!

Good Monday to y’all – did that weekend just fly by or what?!?  I hope that you had a chance to rest in addition to those pesky gotta-get-’em-done-before-Monday things that might have been on your list.  And maybe even do something fun!

My card share for today is a quick and simple one, that uses the fun new Occasions stamp set called Friends & Flowers.  This one is kinda cool, because it coordinates perfectly with the Festive Flower Builder Punch – remember that one from the Holiday flyer?  The one that made the cool Poinsettias??  Like this one right here!  So I combined that stamp set with some paper from the Have a Cuppa DSP stack….and some other little fun things from the new Sale-A-Bration set called Party Pants – and this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:
