No Cooking Recipe Card Challenge #103

This was the challenge over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog. We had to make a “recipe” card and use a House Mouse, a Happy Hopper or a Gruffie. My recipe is from a good friend’s recipe book and it is AWESOME…..Watermelon Salad. There sure have been a few stumbling blocks along the way in making this card. First I couldn’t get my printer to work to print the recipe on to the card stock then I had to hand write the recipe….glad it isn’t a long one. I will replace the card with a computer generated one when I get a chance. Although I am not unhappy with the outcome.

I made a pocket card and this is the closed version. below is the recipe card out of the pocket.

I used a Happy Hopper called “seed  shooter” the cardstock is Real Red and GP white. The ribbon is from my stash. Thanks for stopping by today to have a look at what I have been doing this weekend.
May the sun always shine on your windowpane; May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain; May the hand of a friend always be near you; May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
