Two cards and a Peruvian dessert!!

Hello everyone, if anyone there??? I have to say that my mojo has been gone for almost a week, OH MY!!! I tried to stamp several times, but after trying to mix colors ans papers and inks, I gave up, no mojo, no inspiration, no nothing {insert sad face}. The posts from last week were all previously set up. Anyway, I spent my week having time with my family, baking and just planning few things I want to do in the next few weeks. I also spent time praying, sometimes we (Christians) don't spend much time praying. I needed to do it, so many things to pray for, it feels so good being in the presence of the Lord and you can feel His Love.

Today, I finally have some time stamping!!!! Nothing really complicated, actually very easy cards, but they reflect what I have been doing this week.

Tend the Little Things: The image was stamped in White Craft and then embossed with White ep. The sentiment was stamped in Real Red.

Ink: White Craft, Real Red.
Embellishments: Offray White Ribbon, Gold Stickles.

Praying for You: The image was stamped in a piece of DP using also White Craft Ink, the sentiment was stamped in Basic Brown. I added 2 Clear rhinestones on the corner and a little bow on the image.

Card Stock: Kraft.
Paper: GCD Studios Item #165.

Also I want to show you a Peruvian Dessert I made this week, it is called "ALFAJORES", they are delicious, very delicate and super soft. Last time I made them was almost 3 years ago, wow!!! time flies for sure. Last Thursday I spent time baking with Becca, of course what she wanted the most was to lick the spoon and taste more and more Crema de Leche, yummy!!!
Here few pictures of my delicious Alfajores!!!!!

Have a great day!!!
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Giovana! Both cards are very nice. I love the way you stamped all those button center flowers so close together. It looks like a field of daisys! The white embossing on the 2nd card is striking. And cookies... mmmmmm!
