And my take:
All the supplies which went into this card are varied and various. The pretty lace was a gift from Judy and most other items from Nina. The one thing I DO know for certain is the shiny gold and purple paper in the mid of the rectangle and then repeated behind the circle element with the scalloped edge - are cut from a Purdy's chocolate box. I loved the color and could not bear to toss them in the recycle. Oh yes, the stamps are Fiskars "Just Between Friends" - I bought these and stored them inside a scrapbook album and only found them on the weekend, figured I'd better use them. Lots of nice texture happening on the card.
Now, enough about me - I have a couple of things to share here. My friend JanMary has a little contest going on. JanMary is Irish and so this is an annual St. Patricks contest each year. Why don't you see if some of the "luck of the Irish" will rub off on you!

And I'd also like to welcome my friend Shirley back to designing world. Its been a difficult time for Shirley of late but she's overcoming and pushing aside all the "yick" that life is dishing up for her and she's even managed to work up a pretty FREE spring kit for all of us.

Shirley I had hoped to create a layout or two with your kit but fact is I simply won't have time (frowning) but thanks so much for it - its lovely!
Last but not least, my Mr. informed me there is a pot-luck luncheon at the school tomorrow so I put my thinker on about what to make (I'm under some deadlines) Well, this will not be a hit with him at all for he despises "devil egg" type recipes (he says there is a good reason they call them "devil" But I love them! He's working hard to take of a few pounds so who should I be to tempt him? Thus my new recipe. I wanted to put my own twist on an old recipe so, after thinking about what flavours I'd like to marry together I came up with:
Barb's Mediterranean Stuffed Eggs
12 eggs - hard boiled
1 small tin canned salmon
5 tbsp mayo
2 tbsp green pesto
sprinkle oregano, basil, parsley
sundried tomatoes for garnish
Hard boil and cool the eggs. Peel and slice in 1/2. Place whites hole side up on platter. Put yolks in a large dish. Mash yolks with mayo, pesto and spices. Drain salmon and pick through to remove any skin or bones. Mash with yolks mixture. Once its all fluffy, heap onto of egg white halves. Garnish with strips of sundried tomatoes.
