Timeless Tuesday No. 259 - “A Lotta Polka Dots”

I really thin Polka Dots are so cheerful, so this challenge appealed to me

Timeless Tuesday No. 259 - “A Lotta Polka Dots”

This is what I made out of the challenge:



Designer Paper - Trimcraft “Blank Canvas” by Kristin Cronin-Barrow

Frame - Silhouette Online Store 

Stamp - Kolette Hall

I love the soft look of this paper, you can’t quite tell from looking but each of the polkadots is slightly embossed and a bit sparkly too. 


I was able to dip into a stash of flowers I’ve had hidden away, and brads.  This card was so simple and easy and pretty that I wound up making a “batch”  Do YOU do this when you have success with a card?


My one small thing for today is… “CHAI”


I have been loving everything CHAI lately.  This tin of David’s Coco Chai Rooibos has been a welcome addition to several recipes I’ve cooked up lately.  This tea was a present from my friend Rachel, and we whipped up a batch of Chai Oatmeal when she stayed overnight.  Its simple to make a healthy fulfilling breakfast with just a few ingredients. 

For my recipe, I used:


David’s Coco Chai tea - zap some in a bullet, blender or coffee grinder.

Maggi Coconut Milk (powdered - optional!)



Choose a deep dish, put 1/4 cup whole (not instant) oats in it.  Put in 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup water (depending on what consistency you like your oatmeal)  Add in finely ground Chai (Probably 1/2 tsp or to taste)  Add a tbsp of Coconut Milk Powder, tho this is optional.  Zap on HIGH for one minute.  Stir, zap on the second to lowest setting of your micro for one minute.  Let sit for 5 minutes.  Num!  You can choose whether you add sweetner, or not.  You can also opt to add fruit into the cooking process, raisins naturally sweeten it.

And yesterday, I made some Peanut Butter cookies with Flax, Chai, Ginger and Coconut.  Oh MY! 

Thanks for stopping in today!
