IT'S PASTA TIME!

Hi all!! Well, I have to say, I have received more emails and comments from people I have never spoken to before who all saw my stuff at CHA and took the time to compliment me on them - how nice is that??!! I tell ya, crafters are a very special group of people, and I love being a part of this world!! So, thanks to all of you!! And, for those of you kind enough to ask, yep, 2.5 pounds DOWN at WW yesterday - whoohoo for me!!!Today I am sharing with you the recipe swap card I made for Courtney's monthly swap - if you want in on this, all you have to do is sign up! I tell ya, I have received some wonderful cards, and I am building quite a nice recipe book!! This month was some sort of casserole so I chose my chicken spaghetti, a hit with everyone! I made twelve of these this time - one extra for my friend Melissa who could not sign up this month due to other commitments....so M, one of these is on its way to you!!!! I tried to keep this one a little more simple than the other ones because I have so many swaps to do for Convention, but I still thought it came out cute! Everything used is Stampin Up! except I did cute the letters out with my Cricut! I will leave you with the recipe, now I am off to blog hop!! Toodles!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Garden Green, Naturals White card stock, Cutie Pie Designer Series Paper
Stamps - Voila to Go
Inks - Close to Cocoa classic stampin' ink (recipe printed on computer)
Accessories - Old Olive narrow Grosgrain Ribbon, 1 3/8 inch Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch

Sounds good! I made a cheesy chicken spaghetti with Rotel and Velveeta . . . definitely NOT diet food! I think the card turned out great, and I love the Cricut letters!

You know I was only teasing you about calling me Chris, right? I've probably done the same thing myself many times! Take care Alex!

P.S. How cool that you're getting compliments from your CHA stuff! Crafters are amazing!

That is so cool about your stuff at CHA, I had a card there but I didn't tell anyone, except Chris lol
