My Alfredo!

I almost for got that I said I would publish this yummy stuff!

Julie’s Classic Alfredo!
12 oz dry fettuccine noodles or Trader Joe's dry tortellini
6 Tbs butter
2/3 cup whipping cream
½ tsp salt/ sea or kosher
Generous dash white pepper
Generous dash of nutmeg (don't think about not using it makes it!)
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
garnish with
1 cup fresh tomatoes diced
2 tbs chopped fresh parsley 


1.   Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well and return to pan.

2.   Place butter and cream in large, heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until butter melts and mixture bubbles. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Stir in salt, pepper and nutmeg. Remove from heat. Gradually stir in cheese until well blended and smooth. Return briefly to heat to completely blend cheese if necessary. (Do not let sauce bubble or cheese will become lumpy and tough.)
  1. Pour sauce over pasta. Toss with 2 forks over low heat 2 to 3 minutes until sauce is thickened and pasta is evenly coated. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and fresh tomatoes.     
Love Ya Julie!!

September Craft Class

I have changed things up a bit in that last couple of months!  I have always done card classes and tried to squeek in a few crafty items. 
Well Stamping Has evolved into more so much more.  Last year at Christmas I had a banner class and it started the sparks flying so I decided that we need to have some crafting days too!
So on top of my card classes I will now offer
days where we come and craft!
I look forward to upcoming holiday banners and card boxes!
Here's this Months class:

All of them framed! 

Every day!
Happy Stamping, and Crafting!love, Julie

September's Sympathy Class

I've been blessed in my life not to need too many of these cards!
However I've needed two recently!  I wish I would have had them on hand as I'm not creative when I'm hurting!  Yet it still needs to be hand made and a piece of me so I get to it!

I am so looking forward to our next class, I would rather make these cards with friends then alone!
Here are two more cards that I've made this week preparing for you on Monday!!
I find it a little frustrating that this one dimensional picture does very little justice to this card! It really sparkles and flutters in person!
This is a great set Love and Sympathy!

Again missing some serious detail!  But you get the idea!
I used Pocket Sillouetts, and petite pairs!

Love you and I am looking forward to Monday
for some Stampin Therapy!!!
