Happy Wednesday! Today it was my turn to post on the Verve blog for this month's Project Parade - Happiness for Hostesses! I decided to create something that could be used by a hostess, but you could easily change up the sentiment and it would be great for a hostess!
After I made my card, I knew I wanted to bake some Biscotti and was going to whip up a batch of one of our family favorites but being the perfectionist...**sigh**....I wanted my colors all to match! I know, I know...that's crazy, right? Crazy or not, I went on a hunt for a lemon flavored Biscotti recipe. The one I found turned out so well that when I wasn't looking my sweet munchkins devoured most of them! Sooo, I whipped up some more (not letting any of them out of my sight for a second LOL!) and then packaged them up!
I used A Cup of Life and Express Yourself sets (all from Verve's latest release) to create the card and matching tag. There are THREE chances for you to win some brand new shiny Verve stamps so head on over to the Verve blog and check it out!! Oh, and you'll find the link to the recipe I used there! :-)
Well, I'm going to go clean up my house a little. My sweet friend Tosh and her family are coming to visit us tomorrow and I would not want them to see the mess that is in my kitchen right now!! LOL!! Seriously though, I cannot WAIT to see them and know our time together will go by too quickly!
