Spring Recipe Card

Yesterday I received my cards from the Spring recipe card swap from the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group! What a delightful thing, to find a package in the mail full of handmade recipe cards! My son was sick and home from school, and he had a minute when he passed out, so after taking him to the doctor (he has strep throat---feeling better today!) I wasn't thinking about the recipe cards that I had eagerly been awaiting! Not only did I receive beautiful cards, but I have new recipes to try out!

Today I am sharing my contribution to the swap. I didn't want to spoil the surprise, but now that the cards have been sent, here is Strawberry Pie Tilda!
I was so excited to find the cute little strawberry brad for embellishing (it's by Doodlebug)! I ran out of the ribbon that I used for the swap, so when I made my card, I used a slightly different ribbon. Tilda is done with my Copics, one of my first efforts. I pinched the flowers, because I wanted the embellishments to keep a somewhat low profile, so that the cards could fit into page protectors in an album...that is how I am planning to store them, and enjoy them!
I must say, this recipe is truly one of our family favorites! When I was barely a teenager, a neighbor shared this pie and recipe with us, and that was over 35 years ago! Yikes! I sound so old! Good thing you are only as young as you feel, and generally I feel a lot younger than my actual years! Maybe I keep young by coloring...more sophisticated technique than with the Crayolas of my childhood, but I still love it just as much!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
My hubby is continuing to work on my crafting nook..maybe I'll have pictures after the weekend! I was using it a little, though most of my tools and supplies are not moved in yet.
