A Cherry Hello!!


As I mentioned in my previous blog entry I have recently joined some recipe card swaps and I am loving them. I think I am hooked!!!!

This recipe card is for a swap titled....Outta the Box. So, obviously, the recipe had to be a recipe that used a box or prepackaged product. I found this cake mix cookie recipe several years ago and love it. They are so quick and easy to make and I always seem to have a cake mix and some frosting in the pantry so I can whip them up in a pinch.

I used SU cardstock in Whisper White, Old Olive, Summer Sun and Real Red. The designer paper is from jillibean-soup.com. I love the new a la modes stamps from My Favorite Things. The image I used is called a la modes - What's Cooking? I used my circle punch and Spellbinders scalloped circle to cut out and mat the image. Isn't she adorable?!! I embellished my card with my scalloped edged punch from SU! and the cherry brad from Eyelet Outlet.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
