Howdy and dinner,
I found a new sketch challenge, hosted by Jen of The Deconstructed Sketch Girls.
It was recommended to me by a pal over at the PTI forum.
I really liked the sketch and decided to give it a try.
I made this card as one of the gift set I mentioned in this blog post.
It matches the note pad I made as part of PTI's MIM challenge.
I am really pretty happy with how it turned out.
I had been reading recently about how versatile coffee filters were to use in scrapping.
Can you guess what I used the coffee filters for? Here's a hint:
I only had these unbleached ones, but really like the flower that I made with them.
I popped the watering can out for a little depth.
Lots of PTI goodies used on the card.
The patterned paper is just an old scrap I found, but I really like the way it works.
I want to make at least two more cards to complete the set.
I will post those soon.
Warning: raw fish ahead (may disturb some viewers)
Now onto dinner, something a little less pretty. Last night for dinner I barbequed this (almost) whole salmon. My Costco has been selling these fresh Coho salmon for a couple of weeks now. They are really good, really fresh and really cheap. So I stuffed the inside with herbs, garlic, lemons and a little olive oil. Used some cotton string to hold it all together. When my husband saw it, he thought it looked like something out of a magazine. He took pictures of it. So I thought, what the heck. I must say it was quite yummy. Since my kids don't partake, I will be eating salmon for lunch for a few days.
The lemons look striped because before i cut them up I took off a little of the rind to add to the stuffing.
Thanks for visiting.
See you soon,
