OWH Memorial Blog Hop

Welcome to this years OWH Memorial Blog Hop. This years card is Red, White and Blue using one of these themes: Love cards, Missing You, Thank You, Birthday and Hero cards.   I chose a Birthday card. We were also suppose to use one of the OWH Sketches, I couldn't find one I liked and used a cased card. I hope you enjoy what I came up with. If you want directions on how to make it, just leave me a comment and I will send them to you.  Happy Blogging!

I am sorry my card didn't post earlier. Honest I thought I added it. 


VC Rocks May's Blog Hop 2014

Welcome to VC Rocks first Blog Hop of the year. If you are new to our blog hops, you probably are wondering what VC Rocks is all about.

VC ROCKS stands for Virtual Convention and it ROCKS! This is a group of SU Demonstrators and non SU Demonstrators who love to stamp. We get together every year from April through August to hang out and have fun. The group hosts plenty of  card ideas and 3D swaps, challenges, make-n-takes and much more. So come along and have some fun you can start at the beginning at the VC Rock Blog  here at anytime. Click on each of the blogs and enjoy.

This months Theme: Rock your Creativity with Stampin’ Up! Tools or Embellishments.

Now onto the fun part as you can see there is not a lot of product to use. If you would like to make your own version of this card I have a video with step by step instructions under my video tab. I found how make this card using the Triple Time Technique on you tube a few years ago I just love the effect it gives the cards. I am sorry for the photo, you can hardly tell I used copper embossing powder. I tried several shots and couldn't bring it out.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and letting me know what you think of the Triple Time Effect.  I love reading comments from everyone. Keep going and see what else we have in store for you.

Gingerbread Men

It is that time of the year again, Christmas Cookies. Although over the last several years I don't bake and cook like I use to, I still like to some cookies. Today I made Ginger Bread cookies with the help of my son. I mixed and made the dough and we cut them out and decorated. So how is that for team work. We had fun and that is all that matters. Here is a picture and my recipe. Enjoy and I hope you make some cookie memories of your own.



3 cups  flour
2 tsp.  ground Ginger
1 tsp.   ground Cinnamon
1 tsp.   baking soda
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup (11/2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1 egg
1tsp. pure vanilla extract

Mix  first 6 ingredients; set aside. Beat  butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add molasses, egg and vanilla mix well.

Gradually beat in flour mixture  on low speed until well mixed.  Divide dough into2 flat discs and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

Roll  out dough to 1/4 inch thickness on lightly floured work surface.  Cut into gingerbread men shapes with a 5 in cookie cutter.  Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake  in preheated 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes or until edges of cookies just begin to brown. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks and cool completely. Decorate cookies as desired. With either white icing or sprinkles.

Store cookies in tight container up to 5 days.

Makes 2 dozen.
I hope you enjoy making these as much as we did.
Jackie and Joey
