What's Cooking - Welcome to Sew Many Challenges July Blog Hop. If you came here from Audrey's blog, then you are on the right track.

This month we are cooking up a storm (I hope not literally; as I live in Oklahoma and you know how bad our storms can be.) I used the super cute Miki Baking image, and as if that was not enough Angela also gave us these really neat recipe cards also. I get to give this image and RECIPE cards to some lucky winner who leaves me a comment on this post.

My card is more of a little booklet. It has 5 pages. Above it the cover and here is page 2 and 3.
And here is page 2 (again) 4 and 5. I promised some of my team mates that I would post my measurements for this, so let me tell you all the products that I used, then I will post the measurement below that.

My DP is English Garden by Making Memories. My striped ribbon came from the Seasonal Shoppe at Hobby Lobby (I like to shop there when everything is on clearance in the off season.) All of the little paper cut outs were left overs from a Make and Take at the Mellisa Francis.

All of my images were colored with Copic's and I added some Stickles to Miki's Baker's hat. My 1st page image was cut with a Spell Binders die cut and my faux stitches were drawn on with a Creative Memories red pen. All of my papers were distressed with Rangers Antique Linen inks. Other die cuts were inked with Ranger's Tea Dye ink. The cover has 3 buttons from Michael s Dollar Spot.
Page 3 uses an eyelet on the Mellisa Francis tag. Page 4 uses 3 stars from the Seasonal shoppe. Page 5 has a flower pulled off a stem.

Now for my measurements:
12x12 sheet of card stock and cut off one corner 6 1/4 in by 6. See above photo.

The solid lines are cut lines and the dotted are score lines. That middle measurement that is hard to see in 1/2 inch. I hope this makes sense.

For my Friday Freebie, I used the cupcake image. You can get it here, but only for today.

My DP is a Birthday Celebration pad that I picked up from Big Lots. The image was colored with Copics.
Now for the part that you all are playing for, my part of the sentence is "has to share." Now leave me a comment and head over to the fabulous Georgia.
