Fabulous Friday

Good Morning!  I am late posting on purpose.  I did purposely wait to see what the new Just Magnolia challenge was for today and I am so glad I did.  They have an absolutely fabulous sketch to work with!  And I also found out that I won last week's challenge!!  Whoo-hoo!!

So here's what I did with that great sketch...

I don't own the Magnolia image that she's holding a wooden spoon which is more fitting for cooking than her rolling pin - but sometimes we just have to do with what we've got, right?!  And what's more is this is not actually a greeting card.  It's a recipe card.  Here's the inside....

Last weekend I had an apartment-full.  My sister-in-law came up with her daughter and our niece and nephew.  So my little place was filled with 6 kids and two adults.  Knowing I was going to have so many I set out to make a dinner that feeds a lot pretty inexpensively.  This is one of my children's favorite dinners, too, so I knew I was doing the right thing.  My sister-in-law and the kids LOVED this dinner, so I thought I would combine my card and this recipe for her.  I think it turned out really cute.

Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Black & White (Recollections)
Paper:  Veg Out digi paper (BellaGypsy - A Cherry On Top)
Copics:  B000, E00, E02, E33, E37, E53, R00, R02, R27, R29, Y15, Y17, YR23
Tools:  Threading Water border punch (Fiskars) 7/8", 1" circle punches
Embellishments:  Ribbon (Offray), Vegetable from Veg Out digi paper pack (BellaGypsy)

I hope you like my card and that you try this recipe.  It's really yummy!!  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Friday!

This is so cute Melissa! Love the colors that you used here too. I have never played along with their challenge but after seeing the cards you make for over there, maybe I should. Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs.
