STAMP SOMETHING - RECIPE SOMETHINGS

Happy Friday all!!! WOW!! I cannot believe it's the weekend already - mind you, I am NOT complaining because my man comes home tonight - whoohoo!!! Nothing really planned, but that's okay, it's supposed to rain all weekend anyway. Sounds like movie time to me - *wink* So, it being Friday and all, it it time for another fabulous Stamp Something Challenge!! This week's challenge is Recipe Somethings - anything that has the theme recipes! This week's challenge is sponsored by JessicaLynn Originals, whoohoo!!! This is a fun one, I really love doing recipe cards and decided that I would use this opportunity to add to my recipe book. I decided I wanted to add the yummy recipe for strawberry cupcakes so I pulled out my giant cupcake stamp and went to work!! Now, this stamp actually has a cherry on top so I cut off the stem, and added some little dots to turn it into a strawberry! I also stamped a small cupcake image all over the back of the card in Pirouette Pink. The bottom of my giant cupcake is paper pieced as well (I know, I am on a kick with this technique)And, I also got to play with my new punch that is in the new catty - it's the Eyelet Border Punch, isn't it purdy??!! What is different about this recipe card is I decided to make a pocket recipe card with the cupcake being the part that pulls out. On the back of the cupcake, the recipe is printed! I am planning on using something similar to this in my upcoming recipe class as I think it is a little different and fun to do! And, I love this jumbo cupcake! I added lots of dazzling diamonds as well, so my cupcake really stands out!! I hope you enjoyed seeing my sample and will now head over to see what the rest of the DT gals did for this week's challenge!! You know they all rock - go now, you will be glad you did!!! And, if you decide to take part in this week's challenge, make sure you upload your link to the site so we can enter you in the weekly drawing AND check out your wonderful creation!! Have a fabulous weekend, all - I will be back tomorrow with Scrapbook Saturday where I will show you a fun page I did using pics of Bella!! Now, I am off to play with all my new Stampin' Up! stuff - it came last night and I cannot wait to get my hands into all those yummy new stamps and papers, and dies, whoohoo!!!

Very cute! It's sparkly!! Love it!!

You asked about Janice . . . I haven't heard exactly what happened. We found out, because her daughter posted on ScrapJazz that her mom was getting dressed, fell over, and died. I have no idea what that means or what was the cause. It's just so sad! She was so sweet, and I'm really going to miss her!!

Have a great weekend!
