Patriotic Cards

State Conference is coming up and my chapter is putting together a basket with the theme of "Crafty Ladies."  They added the ornament that I gave back in December and they asked me to make some cards.  These are 5 of the 6 cards I gave them and the next picture is the 6th card.  I made doubles of the cards to use in the future but I had already used the double of the 6th card as a thank you note for the speaker at our meeting this month.  This was his second time coming to our meeting.  He is very engaging and so knowledgeable.  We seem to have him in March each year when it is Women History month.  This year he shared with us about several female spies.  I learned that Julia Child's application was turned down because she was too tall!

 I've shared this next card before, I just used different colors this year and the sentiment came from a different stamp set.
If you look closely, you can see the embossed stars on the navy cardstock.

Chicken Pot Pie Galette with Cheddar and Thyme Crust

This was the best!!  I doubled the recipe because of all the people at our house and they LOVED it!  It is a Taste of Home recipe, give it a try.  The recipe can be found here.

I do believe you will enjoy this as much as we did!

Spring Wall Hanging

Even though I'm not replacing the wall hanging above the door this month, I needed to swap out the leprechaun hat I did for March.  It seems like I've had to whip these out quickly with Easter just two weeks after St. Patrick's Day.

This has more of a spring feel to it.

Let's Go Fly a Kite

It is windy enough here that you could fly a kite and it will be like this for the next six weeks or so.  It is something to be driving toward the valley and see all of the dust flying around.  This wall hanging above the door is quite appropriate.  I don't plan to make the April rain boots wall hanging because we won't see rain until June when it is monsoon season.

I must admit, it was nice to have one without any words.  Goes sooooo much faster!
