For a special day

I'm baaaaaaaaaaack:) 

It's been a dreary day here - windy, rainy, gloomy skies, lightening and thunder. Those of you who know me, know that I tend to curl up on the couch and watch TV, lots and lots of TV. 
I did stay home but I was quite productive. I made some strawberry jam, cooked Pilpel Memule (bell peppers stuffed with rice - a Middle Eastern dish) and made a couple of cards. I'm proud of me!  

Here's the card I'm entering for the challenge over at The Play Date Cafe


I'm also entering it over at CAS-ual Fridays.
Happy birthday in advance Michele. Next week is going to be fab:) 

I needed a lighter grey - this one's a bit dark and shows up even darker in the photo than it really is. Nonetheless, I love the way it turned out! And I love the colors. 

Now, to share some more of what I did today. 

Here are some photos of the strawberry jam. It's not at all hard to make. And oh, I couldn't find a jar so I put it into a glass container. Tastes yum!!!


And here are the stuffed bell peppers:
