I love the new SU! In Colors :)

So....I finally finished those recipe cards I was talking about last week. I decided to go with the new SU! In Colors. I think the Melon Mambo goes really good with the recipe, "Strawberries and Cream Trifle".


This is a 6"x6" recipe card. I used Melon Mambo c/s as my base. I used a 3" strip of Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper. I added a piece of Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon at the bottom of the DSP. Then I punched Melon Mambo c/s with my scallop circle punch. I punched 2 pieces of the DSP with my circle punches and finished it off with a white square brad. I love how it turned out. The colors go so well with each other. Now to get them in the mail to my SCS hostess. This swap is due the 30th!
On another note...anyone who loves Southern Gospel Music knows the place to go to hear the best groups in the industry is the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, KY. My hubby and I just got back and what an experience. We took my sister and her husband who had never gone and they were wowed! Other than watching groups on stage at Freedom Hall back to back to back to.....(well you get what I'm saying), you can also go to the expo wing and every group/artist has a table set up. Believe me you are star struck when you walk through and see your favorite artists behind their tables greeting you, signing autographs and posing for pictures. They were all so friendly. One of the artists had just had a kidney transplant 3 weeks earlier (his wife whom also sings in the group donated hers to him) he performed on stage along with his wife and then both were present afterward at their table greeting fans. He wore a mask and gloves to protect him from germs but he said he wouldn't miss it for the world. That is dedication and caring my friend. I love Southern Gospel Music and I love the singers who put their heart into their "work". They sing to uplift our Lord and Saviour! What a testimony. I can't wait to go back next year!
Until next time...
Blessings...
