Recipe Card

Good morning!

I have entered my first, ever 6x6 recipe card swap. So here is my finished project. I was going to use a recipe that was my great grandmother's but as I was reading the recipe some things didn't quite make sense. I even called my mom to ask her about it and she was unsure...LOL! So I decided I'd better use a recipe that I had made before and knew was tasty. I already had the grandmother image (from TGF) colored and figured I would use her anyway...even though this not great grandma's recipe. Will have to try making great grandma's recipe some day and maybe I can use it in a future recipe card swap. I added the stamped strawberry (Tart & Tangy-SU) since the recipe calls for strawberry preserves. These fruit bars are so easy and very tasty.

Happy Labor Day everyone!
