day 250, Monday, September 7
I am in a recipe swap for the month of September. We are having a brunch at a friend's house. Since I have been doing a low fat diet for a while...I looked up a recipe for a low fat coffeecake. The recipe is from the egg beaters website. I made it the other day and thought it was very good. The recipe is printed on the inside card (see picture below). I used my cricut (Fabulous Finds) for the yellow under the title, a Stampin' Up tag punch and scalloped circle nesties for the cake picture. I also crimped the left side after I put adhesive, so the card will stay inside. I used a 3/4" circle punch to make the "thumb" opening on the right side.
This picture will be my potd, since I have worked on these for several days.
Since I hadn't finished my MCPT Challenge card and for some reason, I missed counted my pockets for the recipe swap...my "leftover" pocket became my birthday card. I used the scalloped oval nesties on the front, doodled on the outter edge. The charm is from Hobby Lobby and the ribbon came from my stash. The paper is a DCWV Summer Stack from Joann's.
The inside is a Changito monkey stamp and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up. I used some Martha Stewart glitter on the frosting and glossy accents on the strawberry. I added black polka dots to her apron and some little tiny pearls for a necklace.
