Fall-To Layout #234

Happy Easter!: I went to spin class this morning, and Janice the instructor gave me some bunny ears.  While Easter is not a holiday that I celebrate (unless you count eating Easter candy), I appreciated the gesture.  :)  I didn't wear it during class because it'd be flopping around and I didn't want to get it all sweaty.
Fall-To Layout #234: I got some new chipboard pieces from Michaels yesterday from the Studio18 brand ($1.50 for 20 pieces + 30% off coupon), and I was inspired to use one of the pieces in this card today.  I took a card base that I was going to use for one of the office cards and repurposed it for this card.  The kraft embossed piece coordinated well with the frame.  I filled in the space around the sentiment with some yellow liquid pearl to match the patterned paper that I used.

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Blackbird
Stamp:  Hero Arts- You and Me
Paper: American Crafts - Botanique
Embossing folder: Basic Grey- Dots Set #2
Chipboard: Studio18 from Michaels
Other: Liquid Pearl in Buttercup, ribbon from Michaels

Recipe #4 of 2013: After spin class today, I went grocery shopping and bought some chicken and mushrooms that were on sale.  I had initial thoughts of making chicken marsala, I decided to branch out and make some lemon chicken with a mushroom sauce.  I was inspired by this recipe, but I made some modifications.  I used a skillet instead of baking.  I added some garlic to the mushroom sauce.  I marinated the chicken with lemon and olive oil for about 1.5 hours before cooking.  It was super easy and quick and yummy!
Zzzzzzzzzzz. I won't lie, I took a long nap today too.  The weather was rainy outside, and I didn't have to be anywhere.
