life is short – so lick the bowl

I don’t know how I ever survived childhood.   My life was a mixture of dangerous and wild activities…

I rode a bicycle (an old rusty second hand thing) in the street.  Without a helmet!!!  I walked to school in all types of weather and wandered through a secluded wooded area to get there.  Lunch was on white wonder bread and kept in a paper bag (no fancy insulated container) for hours until lunchtime.   We had one phone and one car in our family.  One TV with 4 channels – and you had to get up to change the channel.

Ate cupcakes, cookies and brownies that mom made.  And I licked the bowl.    Never got sick.   I am now finding out that you should never lick the bowl because it contains raw eggs…..Can’t believe I was such a risk taker.   But since I’ve managed to survive this far without any food poisoning issues I say go for it!!  Life is too short – lick the bowl.

Here is my dessert inspired card – the image from Our Daily Bread designs and the sentiment from Papertrey.



It was colored with prisma pencils:

plate:  cool grey 20% – 30% – 50%

cupcake and chocolate:  gingerroot – light umber – espresso

candy topping and cupcake paper:  pink rose – pink – magenta

cherry: blush pink – crimson red – tuscan red

whipped topping:   light peach – cool grey 20%

I drew in the ground and shadows with grey pencils.
