General Occassion Cards and a Frosty
Since I wanted to actually use my designer paper instead of letting it sit on a shelve looking pretty I designed these cards. Stamp set Perfectly Penned, designer paper Beau Chateau. Cardstock vanilla, Soft Suede, Marina Mist, and Pink Pirouette. The twill tape I picked up on clearance several years ago, but it is a perfect match for Soft Suede.
I cut out the rooster image from the designer paper and popped it over the chicken wire. I also used left over scraps of the paper and cardstock to decorate the inside of the cards.
This is a copy cat Wendy smoothie recipe. Only 3 WW points and it is yummy. Hits the spot on a hot day.
1 cup fat free milk
2 tablespoons chocolate fat free sugar free Jello instant pudding
2 tablespoons fat free Cool Whip
8 ice cubes
Blend everything but the ice cubes in the blender for about 2 minutes on medium setting. Add the ice cubes and kick it up to high till blended. If you want it colder you can put the smoothie in a plastic cup and freeze for awhile.
Do you like Mounds bars? Well to turn this smoothie into a Mounds tasting one just add a drop of coconut extract.
This recipe serves one and makes a full glass.
Still warm here in Ohio. I got to ride the bike for several days in a row. Been in the upper 70'. How grand for this time of the year. Our normal temps are in the 40's, and the great news the 70's are to continue for the rest of the week. YAY!!!
