card class number 17!

Hello everyone! I made it! This is post number 2 in one month. I have a new found admiration for all the people who have a full time job, food in the house, clean clothes to wear AND still find time to write a DAILY blog! How DO they do it??!! 

Below I have five cards from the April class. I had 24 ladies sign up to take one of the three classes. (Thank you, if you are one of them!!) This was a fun class because all of the cards have wonderful insides that match the fronts of the cards. On my own cards, I decorate the inside, the envelope and put a "hallmark" on the back of the card that goes with the theme of the card. I just always have!! 

Thanks for visiting, and if you feel like it, please comment and let me know which card is YOUR favorite!!

 A super fun card, because you just couldn't mess this one up!! :)

 This one has sparkles on the front and on the dragonfly.

 A class favorite, I think because of the color combo. 

  The purple flower on the front is popped up on a dimensional foam piece. It also has a clear enamel bubble in the center of the flower.
 My personal favorite inside, because I just love the font!! (from Rubbernecker Stamps)
 This card seemed to take the longest, but many of the gals liked this one best!! The front flowers are fussy cut and popped up with foam for dimension. Also the friend tag is popped up. What can I say...I love dimension!!

Hello friends~
Whoosh! There goes another month!! I'm still wondering what happened to January...sigh!

For our Easter breakfast I made applesauce muffins. They were delicious. The ingredients are in our house all the time so these may become a regular special treat!! Several folks asked for the recipe so here goes:

Applesauce Muffins

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 single serve applesauce (1/2 cup)
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 TBSP baking powder
2 TBSP butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
***********************
Oven = 350 degrees
Spray muffin pan with Pam. 
Cream butter and sugar until well combined. Fold in egg and applesauce.
Combine rest of the dry ingredients in another bowl and mix. Add this to the wet ingredients and mix well. 
Spoon batter into muffin cups. (original recipe said to use a mini muffin pan...but I could not find the one I know I had...)
Fill each 2/3 full. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes. 
Let cool for a bit. In another bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar. Also, melt butter. 
Dip muffins in melted butter, then into the sugar mixture.
Enjoy!! 
I hope to be back soon with some cards...nothing new on the shoulder...waiting for approval to see a specialist...meanwhile it keeps getting better so I am hoping that means no surgery!! 
Take good care~
