Here in Ontario our peach season is at it's end...so for the last few weeks I have been buying basket upon basket of them and making the filling for a family favourite...peach cobbler (from the FARM JOURNAL"S COMPLETE PIE COOKBOOK-1965). It freezes very well and it takes no time to make the topping and whip cream for a very yummy dessert over the winter months!!
So on Friday when I was taking a break from "peaches", having a quick bite (NOT PEACHES), while standing at the kitchen island and visiting some of my favourite blogs I dropped into Julie Price's. Julie had blogged about her head exploding with "creative ideas" and I'm thinking "Creative ideas...my head is exploding with PEACHES!!" Then the light bulb came on! I thought..."Hummm...Christine does those wonderful recipe cards". So I asked pretty please dear friend "May I borrow your recipe card idea???"
So thanks to Julie for turning on the light bulb and Christine for letting me "borrow" your recipe card idea!!
I have had in my head to do a recipe box for many years...the ones that I bought years ago were actually manufactured in 2005!! The box is a metal lunch pail with cards, dividers and sheet protectors inside by Basic Grey.
Here is what I came up with...
The recipe card sitting beside the decorated lunch pail...
this is Peachy Tilda (can't remember which collection...sorry) coloured with copics...
the lunch pail decorated with one of my favourite papers, tags, ribbons and pearls...
a closer look at Tilda...
the tags decorated with dies and punches...
I stamped, coloured and cut out extra peaches because there just weren't enough!!!
I love bling sooo...the tags and ribbon just seemed to multiple by themselves!!
The recipe card doesn't match the box but that's because it will go inside!!
I will enter these into the Totally Tilda Challenge "Food, glorious food" and
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge "Punches and Dies".
