Music in the Forest Swap

Yep another Forest Swap...the subject was music...i am in no way musically inclined...other than i like to listen and i like to dance...but creating or singing...uh yeah make the angels weep...

there were a few categories to choose cards...card candy...and you know me...i went with a recipe card...the recipe i chose has nothing to do with music...other than these cookie bars make your tastebuds SING!!!

When i was a teenager one of the youth leaders in our church made these (i think she believed if our mouths were full she'd get a word in)...they disappeared fast!...hello?...sweets and teenage girls?...

and of course the cards are my usual plain jane style...but they turned out "sweet"

Oatmeal Carmelitas
Paper: textured taken with teal..naturals ivory..dp
Stamps: little pieces
Ink: pumpkin (chocolate chip)
Accessories: orange rick-rack
hope everyone is doing well...we have way too much snow safe/be well all...
