Thinking of you

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. This week has been a bit of a crazy one for me. I had no stamping time and now we are getting ready for Kendra's wedding which is on Saturday.

She has asked my hubby & I to speak at the wedding since we were their mentors for 2 1/2 years. So we will be at the rehearsal on Friday and then the rehearsal dinner as well. I am going to say a few things about Kendra and my hubby will say a few things about Aaron.

I have my part all set to go. I typed it up because I don't to think I will remember it and then get up there in front of everyone and forget what I want to say.

I am in the process of making cookies for her cookie table. It's a big Pittsburgh tradition. You have a table set up with cookies and containers and the guests can take some home as well as eat them there. This is in addition to the wedding cake which is served for dessert. The dinner menu is quite extensive. I will post more about that later.

I am making 10 dozen mini lady locks. The shells are all baked and I am ready to fill them now.

Now onto my card for today. I am posting a card that I made awhile ago. I just never put it on my blog.

I used the Stampin-Up "stem silhouettes" stamp set and paired that with baja breeze cardstock. The background designer paper is from Stampin-Up as well. It's from the "ski slope" collection.

That's it for today my blogger friends. So until next time God Bless!!

card recipe:
stamps: pocket silhouettes, mse little birdie

paper: su baja blue, choc chip, ww, ski slope dsp
ink: choc chip
accessories: ms lace border punch, choc chip ribbon


  1. This is so beautiful in the blue, Mary. I am really into this color lately!

  2. Mary, my grandmother (who lived in Steubenville, OH--just downriver from you!) used to make homemade ladylocks for us when I was a child!! I'd completely forgotten until I read that you were making mini ones. She used to wrap the dough for her locks around round clothes pegs (not the spring-type!). How do you make yours?? Beautiful card--love the colors. Have a wonderful time at the wedding this weekend :)

  3. What a gorgeous card! Love it.

  4. Lovely clean lines on this one... have a great time at the wedding!

  5. Thanks so much for your response, Mary!! I had no idea they made aluminum pastry forms for these now! And Gramma always made a buttercream frosting to fill her lady locks, too. She'd fill half with pink frosting and half with white!! I haven't thought of these in years--I'm actually kinda surprised that anyone still makes them!! Thanks so much for the trip down memory lane :)

    My mom was born and raised in Steubenville but moved to central Ohio after she and Dad were married. My grandparents are long gone now, so no direct relations in Steubenville any more, but my mom still keeps in contact with her cousins in the area and just went to her 50th class reunion for Steubenville HS in August.

  6. What a gorgeous creation! I love the layout also!

  7. this card is so delicate! I love the simple stamping and the lovely punching!!

  8. Love your card, but have to admit I'm intrigued about the cookie table. I've never heard of ladylocks, so need to Google them to see what I'm missing. :-)
