CR84FN card and some baking

HEY YALL!! Goodness I cannot believe another week is gone!! >>>>>>>>>>>>>just like that, dont blink!!!  So today was the start of a new color challenge at cr84fn!  and this weeks colors are just fabo!! 
Light blue, aqua and cream!!  reminds me of a warm summer day on the beach.  HMMMMMM should do a beach sign with those colors huh. 
Ok so I did a happy birthday card since a friend of mine is havin her bday next week.

I used my big and small flower punches to make the layered daisies.  A green gem stone fit in the centers.

I love the happy birthday stamp as it looks just like it was doodled on the card by hand. 

I machine stitched around the cream color using a small zig zag stitch and light blue thread. 

So lovin the beaded trim!  Hobby Lobby had their ribbons all 1/2 off of rolls so this was the first roll that went in my basket!  Love the pearl teardrop shape too.    And you get alot on the roll!!  which means more projects!! YEAH~!

I made some white bread dough up and instead of makin a boring dull loaf I rolled it out in a rectangle then sprinkled parmesean cheese, and some dried herbs and a bit of spices to make this unique loaf. 

These are another experiment, brown sugar shortbread discs.  I like some big crisp cookies and these fit that perfectly. 

Hubby likes his shortbread to be a bit darker than I take to market so made him some almost burnt ones!!LOL but yet he doesnt like crisp cookies??  go figure huh!!

Orange ginger shortbread cookies, these have a very nice subtle gingery spice flavor full of fresh orange zest and juice. 

And some mini dipped pretzels for easter!  Have to do some up this week for market.  I do have Borgess Market this thurs in Kalamazoo so stop on by for some goodies!!  I am making my cinnamon roll bread loaves, lots of cookies, some foccacia bread and will definetly have lots of pierogies!!  plus more goodies! 

Bruno crashed out next to me on the couch, and his little brother Barney asleep.

And  my Buster almost asleep keepin an eye open to be sure he sees me.  Ususally he must know where mommy is all the time, actually they all do.  LOL my 3 little shadows!!  that is ok then I know where they are too!!  LOL
Hope yall have a sun shine filled sunday!!  It is almost 50 out right now and the sun is shining beautifully, I have more things to put in the greenhouse so better get my butt outside.  Talk to ya this week!!
