another thank you card and random ramblings

I am off to work today...which is kinda messing me up, lol! Here is a card I made last week while I was in the Thank You card making mode. I used my For a Friend (hostess set), which looks great with any flower image popped up with a dimensional (in my opinion). I like the simple lines and less is more look.

Well since I work today, I had yesterday off...I had quite a productive day. I weeded the front yard, cleaned/organized my fridge (check out the picture). Since I am taking a photography course...I photograph everything these days, ha ha!

and made a yummy blueberry coffee cake (which I am sharing the recipe...yum!). I learned how to make this from my grandmother. She always had something yummy in the house to serve with coffee (we are Swedish). growing up, I lived almost next door to my grandparents and my "Mor Mor" (grandma in Swedish), always included me in the kitchen (which she knew her way around I might add). I am so thankful she taught me how to bake and cook. I hope you enjoy the recipe.
