Say a little Hello to family and friends to brighten up their day. I just love the Summer Starfruit color against the grey honeycomb embossed background…how about you? Well this is one of the two make and takes we did at my Sale-a-bration Open House on Sunday. I worked long and hard to prepare and I am hoping that everyone had as much fun as I did.
What I can’t believe is during all the excitement I completely forgot to bring down my camera and hand it to someone to take pictures. These are a few I took after the fact.
My thank you for stopping by gift was a cute covered post it note holder.
I had lots of fun making this sale-a-bration banner using the sale-a-bration free Designer Series Paper
Close up of the banner – I actually have never made a banner before and was surprised how quickly it came together.
Book a party and choose a pillow box from the “book to look” bowl. You could win a free stamp set!
The second make and take was a simple but lovely Valentine’s card I cased by Catherine Pooler.
These next pics were taken by one of my downline with her iPhone.
Time spent visiting (Susan and I)
Kim and Sherry
Kathryn Anne did a great job on her make and takes and wants to stamp again real soon.
My downline Gigi and her precious granddaughter – I say…start them stampin’ early!
Mary Ann and Mo stamping for the very first time.
I don’t consider myself a wiz in the kitchen. I’d rather be in my stamp room. 🙂 But I received many requests for two of the items I served and promised I would post them. The first is a recipe from food.com that was in my recipes to try file. It was yummy but I’m so glad calories don’t count at a Stampin’ Up! event! 🙂
Cheesy Salsa Dip (Recipe #43111)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup salsa (whatever heat you prefer) I used medium but the next time I make it I may kick it up a bit.
1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine all ingredients.
2. Microwave on high for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring every minute until smooth and heated through.
3. Serve with tortilla chips.
Now how easy is that!!
Stop back tomorrow and I’ll share the Spinach Dip recipe I served and the door prize winners!
Have a great day!
