Four Feathers Birthday

Another birthday was celebrated this past weekend with some of our dear traveling buddies and fellow foodies! We had a blast! Our gracious hostess served a lovely brussels sprout salad with apples, along with some fluffy sweet potato dinner rolls, a side of mashed butternut squash and turnip. The main dish was a pork roast which had been marinating for three days! Was to die for!

Other guests provided some lovely appetizers and my dear husband created the very BEST...cheesecake! Yes, better than the Cheesecake Factory!

Oh, well...you are probably more interested in the above project which was for our Birthday Queen!
Turquoise is her favorite color and she likes southwest decor, so what better way for me to create something unique just for her!

Recipe:

Stamps: Age Awareness, Gorgeous Grunge, Four Feathers (retired)
Ink: tempting turquoise, versa mark
Paper: tempting turquoise, whisper white, vellum
Misc:  four feathers thinnest (retired), hello you thinlets, silver ribbon, dazzling diamonds, dimensional, pewter embossing powder, white embossing powder, iridescent ice embossing powder

Well...there you have it! I hope that you had an awesome weekend too!

Funny thing here in Phoenix, AZ right now...it is cold and rainy and what better thing to do...stay home and create!

Dinner is in the crockpot...some fall off the bone beef ribs in tomato sauce with some of Ken's homemade pasta!

Happy Stamping!
