House Mouse Challenge #103 - a recipe

Hi everyone!

Thank you for joining us for House Mouse and Friends' 103rd challenge, and my last as Guest Designer for August :-( Thanks for having me on the team ladies - you've been wonderful to work with! Following on from the last fruity challenge, we're sticking to the food theme and challenging you to a recipe. It could be inside or outside your card, and I'm not sure whether it HAS to be food ;-) but with so many mouth-watering HM&F stamps out there, it would almost be a pity not to, wouldn't it? Hehee.

I've been hard at work for the last few weeks making 18 jars of lemon curd for our church fund-raiser food fete on Saturday. Here are two of them. MmmMmmmMmmmmmm....... Do you like the highly personalised label? And the cute little lemons on top? DH couldn't get as excited as I did about those, but then he hadn't spent all afternoon designing them and cutting them on the Silhouette and Cuttlebug.

In keeping with our theme, I made a recipe card to be displayed at the fete, showing exactly how the lemon curd was made. I used a Mudpie from the "Berry full" stamp and a very excited Monica jumping into the jar. I couldn't find a jar stamp that fitted so I drew one of mine. All are coloured with Copic markers. The paper is from Basic Grey's Lime Rickey 6"x6" pack, and yellow Stickles made perfect lemon curd running down the jar and all over greedy little Mudpie's paws and mouth.

I'm also entering it into these challenges:
Basic Grey Challenges: anything goes (Lime Rickey)
Charisma Cardz: glitter
Simon Says Stamp: sketch
