Taking a short break!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends! Then I want to apologies to my blog friend Curt (please visit his wonderful blog) who happens to be an excellent card maker and also a man. In my last post I said " many ladies with so much talent..." Yes, but there are also many men who are very talented, so sorry!!

This is just a short note to say that I will not post anything until late next week, so there will be no DT Monday the 29 November for me. I am going in for a surgery and will not have time to make any cards. So take care and have a great week! Hugs!

Recipe book

I decided in July I was going to make a recipe book with Nina May, at Paper Cupcakes, digi images. But it was not until today I got started. I am impressed by Christine at Dolcreations, she makes the most beautiful recipe cards. She is posting the cards one by one, so I thought that's a good idea, because I will not be able to make all in one go. LOL! Not enough time. So today I will show you only the cover! It is a Maya 4x8 book which I covered with fabric in blue and green. On the inside the pages are covered with DCWV papers. So now on to color the images and find some good recipes!
