Recipe Cards, December Daily, Recipe & Winner

Hi! I'm happy you're here because I have a few shares for you today! But before I launch into that, how has the first couple of December days been? Busy? I hope you are finding time to relax and enjoy! Are any of you making a December Daily album? If you are I would really love to see yours!  Leave a comment about your December Daily project and I'll come take a peek!

For my first share, I'd like to show you a hybrid project I created yesterday using a new digital kit from Two Peas in a Bucket. The kit name is 'Yummers'designed by Lauren Reid.

I love this kit with all it's baking and cooking themed patterned papers and elements that are perfect for the holidays as well as for scrapbook pages about cooking and baking. I think this bundle of six recipe cards would make a sweet gift, don't you? You could add some home baked goodies or a couple kitchen gadgets and hand towels.

My favorite part of the Yummers kit is the food drawings. LOVE the poultry leg, carrot and fruits. Well, I think they are all too fun! :)

My next share is the second page of our December Daily album.

I decided on our Christmas card for this year and started writing them out. I used a hand drawn doodle of a Santa hat and turned it into a digital image to print again and again. Then I just added glitter to the red part of the hat. Easy and still handmade!

I opted for a monochromatic theme for the second entry. I love how it looks! I'm wondering though if I should add a little sparkle to my snowflakes? Maybe a little rhinestone to the centers? I always look at my finished project and think of something else I might do with it! Ha!

Now for my last share...I tried another new recipe last night. This one is perfect for those who love quick, fresh, healthy and low calorie meals. We can all use that this time of year with the over indulging of baked goodies, and Starbucks' holiday coffees! ;)

This recipe is called Debra's Grilled Chicken. It's a dish you cook on the grill, but I used our indoor George Foreman grill and it worked perfectly. Instead of wrapping your grilled chicken in tin foil and throwing it back on the grill for a few minutes, I stuck our tin foil wrapped chicken in the toaster oven to finish cooking. For my son who doesn't like tomatoes, I left that part off and simply melted a little Parmesan cheese on his.

I almost forgot to announce the winner of the snowflake embellishments! Oops! :) The winner of those lovely glittered snowflakes is Jeni Alen from My Stampin' Spot. Congratulations Jen! :)

So, this concludes my shares for the day. I hope you enjoyed them. And I wish you a wonderful day filled with holiday goodness! :) Kathy

I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

I'm not sure why but this blog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I'll check back later on and see
if the problem still exists.

An outstanding share! I've just forwarded this onto a coworker who was doing a little homework on this. And he in fact ordered me breakfast due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this topic here on your website.
