Girly Weekend with Deanna

What a Fun Weekend!
We spent the day making Lumpia, Caramel Corn, Fudge, Biscotti and lots of cards.  Amber also came over and helped with the Lumpia and the Caramel Corn.
This is the cute Ferry Stamp my Son Calvin found at the Stamp store Rubber Soul last week. He kept checking on her to make sure she made a card with it. Plus she used You're a Gem stamp set and the top note from the big shot.
Homemade Lumpia! OMG it was so good! I use hamburger in mine.
Nature Walk and You're a Gem Stamps , Botanical Gazette DSP and Polka Dots embossing Folder
I made 2 batches of Biscotti. One batch was made with espresso and Silvered Almonds. The other batch with Macadamia nuts. I have that recipe if any one wants it.
Nature Walk Stamp set with Framed Tulips embossing folder.
 The best Mac and Cheese I have ever had, my Husband said the same thing with his first bite. I had tried to make Mac and Cheese a few times, but this time my friend and fellow blogger Holly gave me the recipe. click here for the Pioneer Woman Mac and Cheese.

 We made 4 batches of Carmel Corn. Most of the with Pecans but we also added chocolate. It is so good I would love to share the recipe but it is Deanna's Grandmas Secret Recipe.. YUM Sorry.

Deanna made the cards, and I made more hand held color charts from my other post.

Thanks for look
