Here are the instructions for this month's recipe card challenge/exchange:
1. Click HERE (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_189&products_id=11393&zenid=df063b938b2980ea80959962bcbda5c2) for this month's starter kit. The majority of your card(s) must be made with this kit to ensure all the cards “coordinate” with each other. Feel free to use additional CU items to enhance your cards (for example, brushes, actions, etc.). The starter kit will be free to those who used the prior month's starter kit to create and share at least one recipe card.
2. The general theme for this month's cards is your favorite EASTER or EGG recipes ~ the post below this one includes more information. Be creative and have fun with your cards! If you need different metal tags and don't have them from previous kits, send me an e-mail and I'll make them for you.
3. Design your recipe card(s) however you'd like. Include your name, forum name ~ whatever you want ~ on the card.
4. Create your original card at 6" wide X 4" tall (1800 and 1200 pixels) and save it as a 300 ppi jpeg, quality between 8 to 10. These are the print-quality cards that will be shared with all participants. You will also need to resize your card at 72 ppi to post in the gallery.
WHEN FINISHED with your card(s), do the following 3 things:
1. E-mail your print-quality, 300 ppi recipe card to LetMeScrapbook@hotmail.com so it can be included in the download file at the end of the month. Several participants have asked for blank copies of the cards you design, so if you're willing to send me both (with and without the words), that would be great!
2. Upload a picture of your 72 ppi card to the Recipe Card Challenge Gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1042). Please upload only your actual recipe card ~ not the blank cards.
3. Post a link here in this forum thread no later than April 30.
At the end of the month, all participants will receive a link to download all the cards created that month. Bon appétit!!

I'm working hard at trying to be "friends" with pastels ~ these colors seem the perfect fit for a mini Easter kit and for my little "Peeps" candies! There are two general themes for this month's cards:
1- your favorite recipe to make during the Easter holidays -- ham, salads, casseroles, rolls, candy, whatever you'd like.
2- recipes that include eggs -- scrambled eggs, eggs Benedict, egg salad, or any recipe that has eggs as an ingredient. You could even do a card that includes special instructions on how to color Easter eggs or make sugar or chocolate eggs.
As always, anything goes! Be creative and have fun designing your cards -- I look forward to another month of delicious ideas!

My entries. To explain one of the entries. I wanted to pay tribute to one of my favorite artists, Thomas Kinkade, so used one of his prints as a backdrop in the window card. The 'sun catcher' features a recipe that a next door neighbor gave to me many years ago when I lived in a previous town. They are both gone now resting in God's presence and both affected my life more than they can possibly know.
04-10-2012, 03:38 PM
The cards are looking wonderful this month! Great job, everyone!
04-11-2012, 01:14 PM
Another great kit, Maurine. Thank you.
My recipe is for Egg Salad Burritos.

An easy way to make perfect hard boiled eggs every time!
04-25-2012, 09:09 AM
Here's mine. I don't like eggs very much, so I did only one recipe this month.
04-26-2012, 03:19 PM
Maurine, thanks for all your work. I love your recipe kits and use them all the time.

Thanks again for another cute kit. Usually cook from a box, so this is about the extent of my egg recipes. Even had to call my mom to find out how to make hard boiled easter eggs, definitely could have used the hard boiled recipe card. http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/data/1042/medium/RCC_4-12_french_toast_low_res.jpg

Here's mine and it's not even the last day of the month!!!
04-28-2012, 08:17 PM
I finally forced myself to get several flower beds cleaned out today, which was a lot more work than I expected. The only motivation I had was taking a break between sections to come here and get caught up leaving comments and admiring your beautiful cards! You truly made bits and pieces of my day perfect! Wonderful job, everyone - love all the hard work on our cards and the great recipe ideas shared!
04-29-2012, 02:14 PM
Another great kit Maureen! Thank you for taking the time to do all the hard work so that all of us can enjoy it. pigluvr

These are so much fun for Easter.

At Easter we like to BBQ a Chevin Rump Roast. This is the Marinade Recipe I created when we were raising Romney Sheep. It works just as well on Chevin as it does Lamb and every other meat I have tried it on
Off to upload this and the blank for sharing.

Well, I began this month worried about the pastel colors in the kit, and I end the month totally in love with them. I'm amazed at the creativity and talent you each have! Thanks for taking the time to participate in this month's challenge and for the delicious recipes you shared! And with that -- this challenge is officially closed!
