Yummy drinks!

Today I have completed a couple of challenges using the brand spankin’ new Coffeetime set from Rubbernecker Stamp Company.

The first challenge was the Clean and Simple Challenge #19  from SplitCoastStampers.  It is a sketch challenge based on a card by my fellow Starving Artistamps Design Team Member, Natasha Trupp.

CAS19 Coffee Speaks


This next card answers a challenge from Sharon and her Stamp Simply Challenge #92.  She has asked us to create a card that we would use to put a summer recipe in or on.

I have chosen to send our family “recipe” for yogurt smoothies to a friend.  I actually don’t follow recipes, but this is how we  make smoothies:

  1. In a blender blend frozen berries (we have found that mixed berries work best) with enough milk to almost cover the fruit.  Blend on med/low till mixture flows freely. (add more milk if it gets *stuck*)
  2. Add vanilla or fruit yogurt (approx. 1 to 1 ratio to the fruit added in step one).  Blend again increasing the speed.
  3. Pour into cups and enjoy.

The card:

Smoothies are an inexpensive and healthy snack that my family truly enjoys.  Thanks Sharon for the challenge!
