Simple Apple Cake Recipe

Gosh i had a crazy day yesterday. I want to tell you all about it after the details to the card. Cause that's why you are coming to visit right?

The card was made for 2 challenge sites one the "old Magnolia Challenge" where my friend Carole picked "Tilda with apple cake" for this week and also for the Copic Challenge blog where we colored "brunette" hair in. Thought of ideas who to use this cute Tilda a little different. iam not a very big "pastry" maker - rather love to eat them.. so instead of a cake i made a recipe card for the person who can bake for me the cake hahaha




Above is the close up shot to see the hair colors. I love recently all the colors from E15 all the way to E19 mixed with E50! The other 2 shots show that the inside, with the recipe can also be used as a cookbook bookmark.

This is just wonderful, Claudia. I'm falling behind on my blog following now that the babies are home, but I will try to keep up! LOL.
I love this Tilda's hair, and the colors you chose for her dress and blouse. I love the DSP you always put together so darned well. I have trouble in that area. This is a wonderful recipe card and such a cute idea to make it all detachable. Fabulous work...

Norma said...

Dear Claudia, what a yummy card!! Beautiful colours here and beautifully coloured. Love the DP's. Like your idea of the recipe bookmark inside the pocket.

'Just Cards' isn't just a small michigan craft magazine. It's got quite a wide distribution, I think. It's a regular stock at Chapters here (Canada's largest bookstore). The local Michaels stores sells them also. I love the way they put one of your cards right smack in the middle of one of the title pages--smart of them I think.

Hugs.
