get well card

Sorry I have been MIA so long. Truthfully, I just didn't take the time to create anything new, but I'm back now.

A family member has suffered a stroke, so I took the time to design this get well card. In fact, the inspiration came from a card that I found on Etsy. The tree and leaf design is not a Paper and Food original idea. As soon as I can find the source, I will give the creator full credit.

I hope everyone is enjoying the foliage and cooler weather. As for me, I love orange/red trees, but the cold weather... not so much.

food and drink decor by country living

More ice cream goodness! Now, instead of offering plain ole ice cream cones to your guests, you can jazz them up a bit. Lightly coat the edge of the done, and decorate with sprinkles or chocolate chips. Me? I prefer chocolate chips!

If you want to stray from the labels on your beverages, create your own (duh, right?). I love these ideas! Why didn't I think of them?

ice cream in a trunk by country living

I love ice cream year round, so it was no surprise that when I stumbled across this photo, I almost melted. This summer has been a HOT one, and I can't seem to get enough ice cream.

This idea created by Country Living is just so unique, and even though it couldn't endure the heat we've had this summer, it's still a great idea. Perhaps early fall I could pull it off...

The purple ice cream is Huckleberry. Visit Country Living to get the recipe.

adventures in photoshop

I've always wanted to dabble a little in Photoshop, but never really took the time to read tutorials on how to create photo effects.

Today, I found a tutorial, and managed my first photo edit. Take a look:

moving card by paper and food

Just having a little fun this evening.

The bird house was inspired by my trip to Lowe's this afternoon. We visited the lawn and garden section, where apparently, ever bird in the county gathers to build their nest. I could hardly hear myself think for all the chirp chirp chirp chirping.

frog illustration by paper and food

I'm not an expert when it comes to using Illustrator, at least, not yet. I do like to practice my techniques. Here's a frog illustration that I mimicked. The crown is my own personal touch :)
