Give Thanks and a Recipe

Today I made a Thanksgiving card design using leaves stamped with Fall colors and the sentiments from the Joy Clair stamp set called Hello Autumn. I think those leaves are so pretty as are the sentiments.

I used the Kalaidacolor Autumn Leaves rainbow ink pad to stamp my leaves on white card stock. I then layered that stamped panel onto Gina K. Designs Honey Mustard card stock. I also had some ribbon that matched the Honey Mustard so I used that on the card as well. This was layered onto a white card base. My sentiment was stamped in Gina K. Designs black ink and then die cut with a doily die and layered onto a circle of Honey Mustard card stock. I used enamel dots of the colors in the leaves to add more decoration to the sentiment design.

I stamped some of the leaves and acorns inside the card as well and added one of the verses on the set with black ink.

Cheery Lynn Dies used are:
ST 014 Rectangle
XM-4 Circle-Classic
Nesting Doll Circles CASO-15

This card design will be entered in the following challenges:
Mod Squad Blog Challenge-Thankful
Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge-Autumn Colors
Crop Stop Linky Party #53-Anything Goes
Double D's Blog Challenge-Harvest Blessings/Give Thanks
Scrapy Land Challenge #53-Anything Goes

Besides making this card I also baked a bit too. Today's baked goods are a moist brownie delight and they are called Dump Bars. Yup! You take a bowl and dump everything in except for the chocolate chips, mix by hand and then put them into a greased pan and bake. Pretty easy!

Dump Bars

2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup oil
4 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips

Dump and mix all ingredients except for the chips. Spread in a 9 x 13 pan or two smaller ones and sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Those bars smell so good but I have resisted and not cut into them. I do love anything chocolate though so this is taking lots of will power on my part.

Well, another day nearly to an end and everything seems to still be a wonderful world. We had a gorgeous Fall day and we shall enjoy them as long as we can. I hope you had a great day as well and thanks again for all of your visits.

God bless,
