Valentine’s Treats and Another Mini Notecard

Hello again, everyone!  I hope you’ve had a nice week.  My creative mojo wasn’t flowing so well last week (it happens sometimes!), but I’m back and ready to share 🙂  First off, did everyone have a nice Valentine’s Day?  It was a good one in our house, for sure.  Joel surprised me with breakfast in bed, and then came home that evening with a gorgeous bouquet of daisies and lilies!  I cooked him a delicious steak dinner with asparagus and homemade bread.  For dessert was a chocolate-covered caramel pretzel cheesecake I made using this recipe from TheChew.com!  One of the tastiest cheesecakes in the world.  If I make it again, however, I will make some changes to the recipe.  It’s really difficult to cut because of the layer of chocolate on the bottom, and I get super frustrated every time I try.  No one should be frustrated by cheesecake.  Totally the opposite of what cheesecake is supposed to do, right?

Here are a couple pictures for your enjoyment:

Cheesecake

It’s a bit torn up because it’s difficult to cut; see the thick layer of chocolate near the bottom? Next time I’ll make it much thinner!

Flowers

Aren’t they beautiful?

Ok, back to crafts.  This is one of the few cards I completed in the past week.  The sentiment comes from the same “Not Too Serious” paper I’ve used before, surprise, surprise.  I spent a while staring at all the elements of the card before I decided to keep it simple.  Some corner punching, a wide satin ribbon, and some bling is all this card needed.  I know exactly who gets this one, too!

Alright, I’m off to make more cards!  Keeping this week upbeat 🙂
