Recipe Card Swap

I joined a Weight Watchers recipe card swap over on SCS. For those of you that don't know, I did weight watchers for about 3 months and lost about 16 pounds! The last month or so I haven't been sticking to it like I should--I need to get back to it before the holidays undo all the good I did!

I signed up for 2 slots, and my recipes are both vegetarian. This first one is for gazpacho, which I love. It is from my Cuisinart instruction book cookbook. I used this SU DP (current! I know!) called Domestic Goddess--the opposite of what I am LOL! I used the Cricut Cartridges Elegant Edges (recipe and mat) and Country Life (utensil jug--cut at 2"). The ribbon is PTI Berry Sorbet.

The next one is for vegetable lasagna and it is to die for! The recipe was too long to get on one card ( and still be in a point size you can read) so I made it double sided and put it in a pocket. This was suggested by one of my fellow swappers. Again, CS and DP are SU, Cricut cart is Country Life. I used a SU embossing folder and some eyelets on the pocket.
I am looking forward to getting these back. I think I am going to make a cookbook for our youth leader at church who is also doing WW. We'll see if I get it done!

Thanks for looking!

Your recipe cards are adorable...I like how they are different, but coordinate so well would be fun to have a whole cookbook done in this style.
