Creations by Lynn Weiss ~ Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator


Friday, August 31, 2007


Last night we had family over for a Mexican Fiesta...complete with homemade salsa and margaritas. We had such a good time! The food was so good...I'm still stuffed! We were celebrating a birthday, so I came up with this card to go with the Mexican theme of the evening.

I wish Stampin Up! had some southwestern themed stamps, but since they don't, I had to use this chili pepper stamp that I picked up a while back. The colors used are: Wild Wasabi, Ruby Red and Pumpkin Pie. I think they worked well together for this Mexican themed card. I also got to try out my new photo corner punch...I love that thing! I think I'm going to have to add a wing onto my craft room just to house my punches!

I think the best part of our dinner was my homemade salsa!
A friend of mine makes the best salsa, and I watched her make it again this past weekend. I decided I should attempt to try making it again. Last year I made some but it just wasn't as good as what Brenda makes...this time it was just as good, maybe even better. (but don't tell Brenda! hehehe)
It had to be my homegrown Roma tomatoes (with a few other varieties mixed in) and Jalapeno peppers that went right from my garden into the salsa...doesn't get much fresher than that! The other ingredients I had to purchase: garlic, sweet onion, cilantro and lime. This is what it looked like when I was done - makes you want to grab some chips and dig in!

I made a huge bowl, and after last night there is hardly any I guess I'm not the only one who thought it was good.

The boys are gone and I've got the house to myself this afternoon, so I'm heading downstairs to stamp. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have some new creations to share.
