This week over at Unscripted Sketches they had a nice clean sketch and I thought I'd give it a try. I flipped the sketch to fit my image from the Childhood Portrait stamp. I've been wanting to use this stamp set for a Christmas card. The sentiment is perfect for the image as well. In case it's too hard to read it says: "At Christmas, play and make good cheer..." and the inside: "for Christmas comes but once a year." You must go see what the other talented artists created, I especially love the Christmas page created by Sarah.
I also wanted to share one of my favorite Autumn breakfast treats. These are Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes with toasted pecans. They are so easy to make and go perfectly with a Pumpkin Latte!
1 cup buttermilk pancake mix
1 cup cold water
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
(opt. items)cooking spray, butter, lightly toasted chopped pecans, maple syrup, whipped cream
Mix all ingredients in medium bowl until just blended. Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter onto 300~350 degree griddle sprayed with non-stick spray. Cook about 2 minutes on both sides until done. Transfer to plate and top with butter, toasted pecans, syrup and whipped cream. Enjoy!
