One Of A Kind

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Yesterday was the last day of our fish fry at our church.

We held the event for 3 Fridays in March. We worked in the kitchen from 12:00-9:30. I was completely exhausted at the end of the night. There is so much prep work that needs done to serve meals for 3 hours. Makes me really appreciate what goes in to running a restaurant.

My cooking contribution was a shrimp-crab chowder. It was a sellout for 3 weeks in a row. This definitely made me feel good. Several people have asked for the recipe, which I will gladly oblige.

So we are finished until Lenten season 2014.

Now onto my fun card for today. I had this cute printed image from Darcie's Stamps. She calls them U-cuts because you cut them out. This one is from her "showers of kisses" collection. I cut the little girl and the rain puddle.

I used the Stampin-Up embossing folder "cloudy day" for the background. Added some red ribbon and my Amuse sentiment to complete this card.
Well, that's it for me today. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. There is church in the morning and it's Palm Sunday. So until next time.......God

Since I made a kid's card today, I thought I would include a photo of my sweet 2yr old grandaughter Phoenix Daisy.
