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 "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.


  1. Oh that recipe looks yummy. I love your changito card.

  2. That recipee looks very good. The card for the swap looks faboulous, love the real pictures... Love your MCPT, your cards are so good all the time.
