Don't you just love the Tim Holtz Christmas stamps

For this one, I used Mini Holidays2 CMS096.
Here's a quick card using 12 x 12 Tim Holtz Idea-ology PAPER STASH SEASONAL and his stamp set, Season's Silhouettes CMS117.

Back in the kitchen

I made a no-bake cheesecake. Don's dad loves a treat, so we bring him a piece when we visit him in the nursing home.

Used a new Quick Rise Dough Recipe

Used a new Quick Rise Pizza Dough recipe for my pizza crust. It was quick and easy and tasted good too. You can find the Crust Recipe HERE.  I used the bulk yeast from Sam's which I store in my freezer.  Substitute 2-1/4 teaspoon of bulk yeast for 1 package of yeast.  The Sam's yeast worked great!

Made Cranberry Muffins

from a Cranberry Bread recipe.

Christmas Tags

I've been working on Christmas tags for awhile now. As you can see, some are inspired by Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of Christmas, which you can see  here.
