Mother's Day for the Cook

A few days ago I watched an interview of the author of a new cookbook. I was once a good cook from a family of foodies until I developed so many food allergies after e-coli that I only had one or two things I could eat for years. Yet now I've been able to add a few more foods in the past year and I especially loved the addition of veggies! I was intrigued by this book and thought I'd like to read it some day. Imagine my delight when I saw the challenge at The Library Challenge to make something highlighting the title, cover, content. My mother and her mother loved cooking so much they were copying new recipes all their lives. Now my daughter, part of a new generation of cooks, loves cooking, collecting recipes from internet using her smart phone in the kitchen and watching the food network on tv. This will be her Mother's Day card.

Each CTMH paper pack has a Workshop Kit that makes 3 layouts and a set of cards in two or three patterns. This card came from one of the card patterns but I made changes to make it the way I like to have cards. I attached the pieces to a 6.5" x 5" card base instead of the smaller size. I embossed the Peacock cardstock with diamonds and added the sentiment stamped on a party banner die cut. I like to stamp the pieces first, like the salt and pepper shakers and the oven mitt, then cut them with the dies, taping them with washii tape to hold in position over the stamped image.

Here is the 2nd card that is part of that workshop kit:

Thank you for visiting!

Hebrews 6:17-18 this way... 17So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. (ESV)

What lovely cookery themed cards with sugary colours and loads of interest. I haven't read this particular book, but I do have his previous book and it's mainly vegetable dishes with lots of spices and flavour. So sorry to hear your health problems have hampered your joy of cooking. Thanks for joining The Library.
