RECIPE ANYONE????????

Hi all! Today I am going to share with you a recipe swap card that I made for a recent swap I was in. I have to say, this is probably one of the most fun swaps I have ever done and plan on doing more of these. It was a 6x6 Recipe Card swap and I loved working with the bigger palette - it was like doing little scrapbook pages, lol! So anyway, the theme this month is breakfast foods so I decided on my Apple bread, which my kids have declared ultra yummy! Don't they all look so colorful and fun when they are all bunched together - I just had a ball with these! And, I got to use my favorite stamp set - VOILA (aka fat chef!) and another favorite, Tart and Tangy. Here is a closeup of one that I made - I did paper piece each chef because I felt he needed to be wearing an outfit befitting the recipe, hence the apples - LOL! I hope you like it! Have a fabulous Wednesday, I know I am, hanging out with my mom and sister! So, I will leave you with the recipe - toodles!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Kraft card stock, Rose Red card stock, Naturals White card stock, Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper
Stamp Sets - Voila, Tart and Tangy
Inks - Rose Red Classic ink, Rose Red, Mellow Moss, Basic Black, Old Olive, and Regal Rose Stampin' Write markers, Black Stazon ink
