I tried to burn my kitchen down tonight. I was yelling at the dogs to leave me the heck alone to cook and flipped the pot holder into the candle. I was trying to make homemade ravioli with artichokes and low fat mozzie. I used pot sticker wrappers from the Asian food aisle. Not bad. Topped with broccoli, garlic and olive oil with a splash of lime hot sauce. Hubby had more cheese, I refrained. But I burned up my potholder with the little drunken man on it. I now have potato soup simmering in my new slow cooker.
This was Joan's idea and is so simple and pretty. Use a plain card. Stamp a white piece with the flutterfly (which I think is a Magenta stamp-so good luck finding it anywhere) and make your own patterned paper. Layer this on the bottom of the card. Cut a piece of gingham and layer it with a strip of solid and place this on the seam of the card and stamped piece.
Take some scraps of pastels (sorta like serendipity squares but oblongs instead and layer them on a plain white scrap. Edge with same ink used to stamp images. Then stamp the same image on top of it. Pop dot it off center. 5 minutes tops. Use for just about any occasion depending on the colors you use. This would be good for a sympathy, birthday or Mother's Day.
