No Cookin Recipe Card HM Challenge

Hi all :-) I hope you are all OK and for those of you near the east coast of the US, I hope you are all safe and not too badly affected by the terrible storm. xx Our very own America and her family have had to uproot and head inland to a safe area, along with thousands of others ! Our thoughts are with you all and hope you are able to return home soon xx

This week it is Mary’s turn to choose the theme on the HM&F Monday Challenge and she chose

RECIPE CARDS ,,so any cards/creations that include a recipe ! so much scope here to get creative !! :-)

Don’t forget you MUST use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image to join in :-)

We have 3 fabulous sponsors this week

House Mouse Designs who are giving a $25 voucher to their store

KnK Designs will be offering one entrant 3Digi stamp sets


Pizzaz Aplenty will be giving away a surprise parcel of embellishments worth $10 ! :-)

I have had this recipe box for over a year just waiting to be decorated ,, about time I got it done eh ! :-) For the outside I used the ever so versatile House Mouse Amanda Writes stamp, this image can be used for EVERYTHING ! I used a Lawn Fawn Alphabet set to write ‘recipe’s’ The papers are Kaiser Crafts Nan’s Favourites. All the edges were inked with Vintage Photo distress ink and I added a gingham ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and a fab charm that was a RAK from our lovely America .

For the inside I used various stamps to make sections and I have ordered these recipe cards to use :-) I can’t wait for the postie to arrive !!

Cakes section using Recipe for Friendship + LOTV Recipe sentiment card

( I used these recipe sentiments on all of them)

Soups section using Give Peas a Chance

Fish section using Kissy Face ( thanks Scoopy x)

Poultry section using Feathered Friends ( again, thanks Scoopy)

Now the next section was to be Meat ,, but after the trauma of the poor fish and birds my heart just couldn’t bear it so it has to be Salads Open-mouthed smile ( thanks Heather xx )
