1. What is your favorite dinner recipe? (And will you share it with us?) Oh, wow! I guess I didn't think about ME SHARING a recipe! haha

3. What papercraft items do you make... other than greeting cards? Not much...thought I should b/c I have piles of paper and embellies! Perhaps, I shall make a banner...for all our bdays which are about to hit! Can that be my "new New Year's Resolution?" haha

5. What is your favorite stamping technique? I love how some people are so great about executing techniques!! I love to see the spotlight technique...and mixed media. If that could be called a technique!

And in case anyone is wondering... I thought we'd do one more "extra fun in the envie" each week. And then over the holidays...go back to "just a card." b/c everyone's time gets squished at the end of the year!!

Survey
1. What is your favorite dinner recipe? (And will you share it with us?) Grilled salmon is always a favorite (any smokey wood is delicious-mesquite, apple, oak) and this yummy pink peppercorn tartar sauce adds a nice finishing touch: finely chop some red onion, Italian parsley, stir into some mayonnaise and sour cream (2:1 ratio) with drained capers and cracked pink peppercorns, to taste. Goes great with champagne vinaigrette over arugula greens and pink grapefruit segments with parmesan curls. Add a crusty artisan bread and you are ready to feast.

2. If you were to design a stamp set, what images or sayings would be in that set? Iris, in memory of my grandmother's garden, roses, because the traditional tea rose scent is intoxicating, and lilac, for old-fashioned charm (you can guess that one of my favorite designers is Marcella Hawley because she is such a wonderful artist of botanical accuracy).

3. What papercraft items do you make... other than greeting cards? Just cards

4. What do you like about Autumn/Fall? The colors, the woodsy scents, cinnamon flavors everywhere.

5. What is your favorite stamping technique? I enjoy coloring images with copics. The rest of the card gets built around the central image. I never know at the beginning what the finished project will look like.

6. What stamping technique would you like to learn? Mirror-image stamping. There was a tutorial recently that featured the using the Misti and Paper Smoochies mirror stamps. I need to give it a try.

7. What are your current favorite color combos for paper crafting??
When I look at my gallery I see lots of pink and purples but I enjoy trying different colors with different seasons, different papers, and different layouts. Surprise me!

I'd like to participate again, please!


1. What is your favorite dinner recipe? (And will you share it with us?) Something easy! I'm a lazy cook... since I'd rather be stamping. I do love to make soup................ and usually do it in the crockpot.

2. If you were to design a stamp set, what images or sayings would be in that set? hmmmm... tough question. I actually had the opportunity on the JLO DT to have JLO create a custom stamp for me. It took me forever to decide what I wanted. LOL! So, to answer this question quickly is difficult. I'm going to say something with a travel theme, since I love to travel.

3. What papercraft items do you make... other than greeting cards? None! (I tend to only make cards)

4. What do you like about Autumn/Fall? The colorful world as the trees are changing.

5. What is your favorite stamping technique? I am not sure this counts as a technique, but I love to color. I'm not good at shading/etc but I find it to relaxing to color even if my finished item is kind of child-like, due to my lack of ability.

6. What stamping technique would you like to learn? I have long thought I'd like to learn to make one of the cards that has 3 layers of the same image, only each layer is smaller and shows only a portion of the image. I'm not sure what the technique is called, but I've seen some beautiful cards with it.

7. What are your current favorite color combos for paper crafting?? ALL! I really don't have a favorite... sheesh! I don't even have a personal favorite color. I just love them all.

Danielle... I make chicken tacos often, too... in the crockpot. And then I take the juices/broth and some of the chicken and add other goodies and make Chicken Tortilla Soup........... so multiple meals out of one crockpot of chicken/salsa.

I'm in. But have to say I prefer not doing stuff weekly in the cards because my mailman won't take them if they are chunky and I can't always get to the post office.

But I am in and will do my best.

Default Survey

1. What is your favorite dinner recipe? I go to dinner at a friend's house most evenings so I don't cook very often. But when I get home around 7:30 pm each night, I almost always fix myself a vanilla steamer. If you haven't tried one, they are scrumptious! All it takes is a cup of skim milk and 3 capfuls of Torani's sugar free vanilla syrup. Heat this - I use Mr. Coffee's Cocomotion machine because it whips it as it heats it but you can zap it in the microwave for about 90 seconds or heat it on the stove. It's sweet enough to keep me from munching in the evenings and I swear it helps me sleep better!

2. If you were to design a stamp set, what images or sayings would be in that set? I love lighthouses. I moved from Maine 40 years ago but I still go back every few years to visit Nubble Lighthouse in York, Maine. I have a lot of lighthouse stamps but I don' t have one of Nubble Lighthouse....that's the stamp I would design!

3. What papercraft items do you make... other than greeting cards? I do lots of different papercrafting...jewelry making, boxes and books, quilling, homemade paper, etc.

4. What do you like about Autumn/Fall? The cool, crisp weather - being able to wear sweaters again!

5. What is your favorite stamping technique? I'm always looking for new folds, techniques and products to make my projects unique. Lately I've really enjoyed some of the acetate projects I've made.

6. What stamping technique would you like to learn? I would really like to get better at mixed media...it takes practice and I haven't figured out what to do with the not-so-great looking projects along the way! I hate to just throw them out but even my mom doesn't want them!

7. What are your current favorite color combos for paper crafting??
My favorite is bold, contrasting colors. My favorite color is red. I also enjoy monochromatic, white-on-white, or cream-on-cream combos. My least favorite colors are pastels.

This sounds like so much fun!! Please sign me up for the Bakers Dozen Monday group!
I can't wait to make a new crafty friend!

1. What is your favorite dinner recipe? (And will you share it with us?)It's called Chicken Stuff for lack of a better name.
You chunk 3 boneless chicken breasts, and place those in a bowl with about a cup of milk to sit in the fridge overnight.
The next day drain the chicken pieces, and dredge them in 3 beaten eggs, and then plain breadcrumbs. Shallow fry you nuggets until the bread coating is browned, and try to place in one layer on the bottom of your baking pan.
Preheat your over to 350.
In the pan add 1-2 cans of chicken broth, and top with Muenster cheese. Optionally you can add mushrooms. You will know how many cans of chicken broth you need by how much it takes to just cover your chicken nuggets.
Bake for 35-40 mins.
I add salt and pepper to my bread crumbs, but you can season at whatever part of the recipe you want. Super easy, and super yum!! I make them with homemade egg noodles, or just a veggie of choice. They are almost better the next day as leftovers, but I like when the broth is all absorbed into everything...lol

2. If you were to design a stamp set, what images or sayings would be in that set?
Unicorns and Rainbows....with sayings about how you are perfect, anything encouraging.

3. What papercraft items do you make... other than greeting cards?
Pocket letters, flip books, altered journals..anything I can glue paper to that won't run away.

4. What do you like about Autumn/Fall?
I like fall colors, it to me feels like a time to be aware of what you are thankful for, more so than you are at any other time of the year. I also love that it's not so hot you can't walk outside without melting, that's a plus!

5. What is your favorite stamping technique?
I am really getting into watercoloring.

6. What stamping technique would you like to learn?
All of them!

7. What are your current favorite color combos for paper crafting??
I like to play with color, but I think right now my favs are coral and light aqua blue or teal blue.

Hey....I have heard from a handful of you. Since so many would like to keep this a card swap (without the extra goodies and mailing costs), let's go back to the original Baker's Dozen plan. So...13 cards in 13 weeks. Extra goodies are up to you!

Thanks everyone for your input!

Survey


1. What is your favorite dinner recipe? (And will you share it with us?) This would have been easy years ago when I used to cook

2. If you were to design a stamp set, what images or sayings would be in that set? I think there would have to be flowers (and maybe comfy chairs) and the sentiments would be about gratitude and blessings.

3. What papercraft items do you make... other than greeting cards? I do scrapbooking, although mostly with the Project Life app.

4. What do you like about Autumn/Fall? My favorite season...the colors, cooler temps, Halloween.

5. What is your favorite stamping technique? Two, or three, step stamping.

6. What stamping technique would you like to learn? I've never been very good with vintage and am impressed by those who can put that together

7. What are your current favorite color combos for paper crafting?? I really like them all. I find i often go toward the subtles.

Dawn,
I have been MIA for awhile but would love to do another round of baking with these great card chefs!

1. What is your favorite dinner recipe? (And will you share it with us?) I have so many favorite recipes- I will gladly share. Go to's for me: Chicken Divan, Taco Soup, Burrito Casserole.

2. If you were to design a stamp set, what images or sayings would be in that set? It would probably have big words and small accents or be something cute like animals.

3. What papercraft items do you make... other than greeting cards? Note card holders, boxes, bags, scrapbook pages etc.

4. What do you like about Autumn/Fall? I love wearing sweaters and no coats! The smell of a fire burning outside or the smoke from a chimney. The smell of leaves and the decorations of pumpkins and all the fall foods.

5. What is your favorite stamping technique? I like clean and simple stamping. I love making my own background papers and doing one sheet wonders as well as sponging and brayering which I have been practicing.

6. What stamping technique would you like to learn? Anything and everything!

7. What are your current favorite color combos for paper crafting?? I am loving pinks and peaches and contrast colors.

Laura

You should. We love the soup!

To the chicken & crockpot juices I add chili beans, corn, chopped tomatoes (or frozen ones from DH's garden), onions, a can of tomato sauce. Cook it in the crockpot all day. YUMMY!

I'm guessing the swap is full now? Didn't hear confirmation either way. I can always join the next one!

Angie, post #1 says we can sign up until July 25th, then the pairing will be done. I think this swap is still open for participants to join.

Survey:

1. Favorite recipe would be anything that can go in the microwave, LOL. I SO don't cook.

2. I would design a dragonfly stamp set. Absolutely love those creatures.

3. I only make cards at the present time, along with the occasional ATC or Pocket Letter.

4. I love the colorful leaves and cooler temperatures in the fall. My birthday is also in the fall.

5. I would like to learn more stamping techniques. I basically just color in images at the moment.

6. I am open to learning/seeing all types of stamping techniques.

7. I really don't care a great deal for baby pink, yellow, or blue, but am otherwise open. Love pink and red and blue and green.
