Page 4 of Favorites Book – Willow Writing Recipes

I’m back to working on My Favorites Book again. I’ve been trying a lot of new recipes and have loved this image since I bought it years ago! Of course, I had a plan before I colored her up. On the two page layout I’m using this one and then the next image will be Mo Mannings, Lemons.

I have really gotten into using Meyer lemons. They aren’t as sour as regular lemons. I’m not big on sour. I’ve made a lemon tart, lemon creme brulee, lemon madeleines, old-fashioned lemon sugar cookies, (the guys went ape over these!). When the weather cools from the 90’s on Tuesday! I want to bake a lemon curd & strawberry sunburst tart. If you love to cook and bake from scratch like I do I heartily recommend “Luscious Lemon Desserts” by Lori Longbotham! All of the above recipes came from this book.  There are so many more I want to do!

The recipe I used with my image is not her’s. I went with a Martha Stewart that was online.

Willow with Hot Chocolate

by Myrna Irwin

I just love this image. Reminds me of sitting in front of a fire on a cold Winter’s day and enjoying a hot cup of cocoa. Heaven knows this Winter we need all the creature comforts we can get. It’s been a long snowy one. A friend bought me this paper as she knows I LOVE orange. So of course I had to use it right away. You will notice I use orange a lot in my cards. We all have our favorite colors. 🙂

Here are the stats for my card.

  • Lasting Impressions Creamsicle (orange paper)
  • Whiff of Joy Willow with hot chocolate image

  • snowflake brads from my stash
  • Savvy Stamps Thinking Of You
