A Three C Weekend (Cooking, Comedy and Crafting)

Hi, guys! Hope all is well!  This weekend was a very busy one for me.  We attended a local fair, and a comedy show where my hubby's high school friend, Rob Bartlett, was performing.  It was a lot of fun.  I also did a lot of cooking which is great because I am hoping it will free me up to spend more time in my craft room!

I thought I would share two of the dishes I made. Since I have a large cookbook collection I just browsed until I settled on these two dishes.

 I made Paula Deen's baked spaghetti:

Boy, is this delicious!  I love that you can cut squares just like lasagna.

I then took out my David Venable cookbook and made his turkey shepherd's pie.

I love shepherd's pie, but normally I like the beef one, but David's uses turkey which I thought would be a good change.  

How about a card?   I am sharing a tag I made for a friend.  This is my take on the February tag for the 12 Tags of 2013.  I had made one, but was waiting to make this one when I got the stamp set he used for his. I just love this Queen of Hearts image.

I used Distress Stains for the background and Distress Markers for the watercoloring of the image.  You will see I used Core-dinations card stock that I sanded after embossing.  The ribbon was made with tissue tape.  My friend was very happy to receive it (finally!).

Until next time!
