UPDATED: May 7, 2011

Here are the instructions for this month's recipe card challenge/exchange:

1. Click HERE (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_189&products_id=7267) for this month's starter kit; it will be free to those who participated in the prior month's challenge. Please use this kit (or papers/elements you design in the same color palette) so the cards will "coordinate" and to ensure we don't violate other designers' TOU.

2. The general theme for this month's cards is your favorite Mexican recipes. This is a wide open theme ~ anything goes! Be creative and have fun with your cards! If you need different tags for your card(s), 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, e-mail address ~ 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 May 31.

At the end of the month, all participants will receive a link to download all the cards created that month. Bon appétit!!

Dear friends: I'm on a business trip this week and won't be home until late Friday. I am hoping to finish the starter kit at night, but so far I'm working long days and not getting much free time. Please be patient with me! : )

As for this month's theme: it was totally going to be breakfast in honor of what all moms should get served to them in bed on Mother's Day, but I have seen so many good recipes in honor of Cinco de Mayo that we're going with MEXICAN! So get those ideas flowing and watch for the kit by Saturday at the latest...

No problem, we can wait for you. Have a good trrip and don't work too hard. I know that's impossible when you are away on business. There is always too much to cram into the time that you have.

No problem. Waiting patiently. Don't mind waiting at all. Waiting, waiting, waiting...Well maybe I am not so good at waiting after all. But, you have a great trip. Take some time to enjoy. I will find some reipes, then I'll hop on over to clutter it and color and check back later. Thanks

Oh, goodie...I'm glad you changed it to Mexican! I am not a "breakfast" person and my family loves Mexican food.
Oh, and by the way, we'll wait... uh, but don't count on patiently! LOL

What a long week I had ~ sorry for the delay in getting the starter kit finished and posted. I'll be sending the coupon code to all April participants today. I look forward to seeing all your fun card designs and tasty recipes! : )

I played. Check it out: (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/recipe-card-challenge/p76857-white-chili.html)

Also I'm emailing you the card. Hope it's the right size. I use a different program than Photo Shop and it's hard to tell the pixels with it.

You've had a busy week! Hope your trip went well, Maurine. I can see that you made time to make another fun kit! I love it, and I love Mexican food, too. I'll have to find a good recipe to create my cards.

Hi Maureen,

I've never done a recipe card challenge before, but I LOVE Mexican food, even lived in Mexico for awhile a looooong time ago. LOL! I'd love to try this. Is it too late?

Salsa Chicken

Font was son of Time and had the bulls in that font
I thought that went with the Mexican theme

Can someone pls tell me what dimensions you are successfully using for your previews? If I use 600x600, the card isn't disorted, but there's a big white space above the preview other ppl don't have. If I usee 600x400, the card is distorted. Thanks.

When I finish my card, I just change the size (ctrl-alt-I in photoshop or PSE) to 72dpi and save a jpeg file. Seems to be working. Just make sure you DON'T go and save the layered file that size!

Dear friends: If you follow my blog, you've probably seen my post about injuring my back earlier this month. I could whine about it -- but I won't! I'll just apologize that my "sit at the computer for a long time" has been impacted, and I'm way behind on replying to your e-mails and posting some much deserved love in the gallery. You will start to see that soon -- thanks for your patience in the meantime!

You all have ROCKED the challenge this month! I absolutely LOVE the cards and wow! ~ there are so many great recipes. Super, super job!

Don't worry about leaving messages etc. for us. Use your computer time sparingly so that your back gets better.

Dear friends: If you follow my blog, you've probably seen my post about injuring my back earlier this month. I could whine about it -- but I won't! I'll just apologize that my "sit at the computer for very long time" has been impacted, and I'm way behind on replying to your e-mails and posting some much deserved love in the gallery. You will start to see that soon -- thanks for your patience in the meantime!

Hi, there. We'd love to have you join us! The first time you participate, you need to purchase the starter kit from my store, design a recipe card and post it both here in the forum and in the recipe card challenge gallery, and e-mail me the print quality version (along with a blank card). You'll never have to purchase the kit again as long as you participate each month! There isn't a way to get the past recipes -- although they are available here in the gallery so you can create your own.

How would I participate for the first time? And is there any way to get the past recipes?
Thanks

I see someone else already replied, so if you need more info, let me know.

I'm thinking we should put together some simple, easy to follow instructions on this, as well as how to post both in the gallery and this forum. Anyone want to give it a shot and e-mail me what you come up with? That way, we can include that information here in the forum in its own separate thread for those who need it.

Can you think of any other instructions we should put together and post?

Can someone pls tell me what dimensions you are successfully using for your previews? If I use 600x600, the card isn't disorted, but there's a big white space above the preview other ppl don't have. If I usee 600x400, the card is distorted. Thanks.

Well, I left the "simple" cards this month for my Lime Rice. My daughter asked me if I had to use "all of the elements" on the card. Sadly, I still don't know how to post my card so you will have to go to the gallery to see my "overdone" card.

Dang! If you think these cards look good on your screen, you should see them "in person." You're going to be very pleased when you get the download links for all these cards!

And now the pressure is on to come up with a starter kit for June. I don't want to disappoint any of you after seeing all the great work you did in May...this is easily one of my favorite months so far! Super, super job, everyone!

Here are two recipes I am submitting for this month's recipe challenge and my blank recipe card. This is the first time I've ever done a recipe challenge, and it was a lot of fun as well as a learning experience. I actually like the first card I made better, but it was a tabbed card and I couldn't figure out a way to save it as a .jpg file that would preserve the transparency around the tab at the top of the card. This happened because I had used the yellow index card as a clipping mask on top of the multicolored paper (below) and then erased most of the paper to make it look like it was only edging the yellow card. Back to the drawing board, as they say! :c

This has been such a fun month -- with lots and lots of familiar faces and several new participants. I'm happy every one of you joined in! Give me a few days to pull all the cards together and get them ready for download -- I'll be sending the links to all of you soon. And with that, the May challenge is officially closed!
