Sweet Holiday Wishes

It is Saturday and we have a really fun challenge for you at Sugar Creek Hollow this week. We want to see a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper-crafted project that features a RECIPE CARD. The recipe card can be shown either on the front or inside your project and the recipe itself should be a family favourite that has been passed down over the years.

If your recipe isn't easily read from the photo of your project, then we would ask that you detail it in your post. It would also be great if you could show a photo of the finished recipe. Your recipe can be of any type and we would love to hear the story behind it. Soon your family's favourite could become someone else's family favourite so thanks for sharing.

This week one random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Don't forget, we also have Christmas Blog Candy for one lucky winner to be chosen from our challenge entries between now and Christmas Eve.

Our designers have shared some wonderful recipes so click on their name to be taken directly to their blog where you will find many more details about their recipe and their project.

I have created a card with a recipe inside.

The recipe is a cookie recipe that I just make at Christmas called Ginger Sparklers although they could be made any time of the year. These ginger cookies are easy to make and freeze well. My husband has been known to eat them right out of the freezer while they are really crisp but if you let them thaw they are slightly chewy. The recipe was given to me almost 30 years ago by my Sister-in-Law but I understand that it might have originally been printed in a Robin Hood Flour recipe pamphlet.

I know this is a really long post but here is the recipe:

I am going to enter this card in the following challenge:
