A little bit digi, a litttle bit paper

Here's my offering for cardswap this month. We're doing a recipe card exchange of main dishes this time. Can't wait to see all the yummy recipes - not that I'll actually use them or anything! ;)

I really thought about doing it all digitally but I decided I'd better not. So I compromised. The index card looking piece is actually a digital element (February Idea Book by Gina Cabrera) that I resized and printed my recipe on. I just printed out a bunch of them (on regular white cardstock), crinkled it up to make it look even older and stuck it on! It saved me a lot of time finding paper that looked like an index card or using an actual index card and printing on it - not to mention trying to load a little index card into my new printer (that I still haven't quite figured out yet!) I also didn't have to distress it with ink or anything - it came that way! Yipee! I am so lovin' digital! It was fun to play with my paper and other tools though. I even whipped out my sad little sewing machine. I have GOT to get something else before I can start sewing my rag quilt. I don't want to ruin all my hard work with this crappy machine! Well, I'm off to soccer practice and then cardswap! Yea!

Turned out so cute, as usual. You probably get tired of getting my sub-par products every month, but I LOVE getting yours!
