Your Own Pie Crust
Perhaps it was destiny. Perhaps it was chance. With a last name like mine you've got to make your own pie crust. The husband was a bit intimidated when we were first married-you see, his mother gave up making her own pie crust. My mother, on the other hand, was a natural, and taught me a few of her tricks (thank you mom!). The husband is no longer intimidated, in fact, he excepts a homemade crust. And whenever we gather for the big holidays at the in-laws, it is given that I make a pie.
Yesterday was a busy but productive day. I was recently gifted some apples and a pie is in the works. Shortly, I will deliver this little card to as a thank you, however, I don't image there will be any pie left to send along with it... (Lawn Fawn offered up a challenge to make a thank you card and actually send it.) Lawnscaping also offered up a challenge to make a card for World Card Making Day! I used a mix of My Silly Valentine and Sophie's Sentiments.
The colors from The Play Date Cafe lent a hand in the design as well.
