A couple of cards in pink

The first card is using a wine label and an assortment of stamps. The image is from patterned paper.


For the second card I used a tag which was a free gift in a Magazine. Just gave it a bow and a diecut background and it made for a very quick card.


Now for a little cooking tip. Do you have a Muffin tin? Well, until Saturday I never ever owned one! I found one at our local store, one with six rather large cups in it. Saturday night I arranged a cozy dinner for two with DH and wanted to do something special and original. So I made some mini Asparagus tarts in the Muffin Tin. So easy! Used puff pastry which I cut out into four circles and into four of the cups. I mixed four eggs, a little bit of cream, Roquefort cheese (3rd of a pack), salt, pepper and a jar of asparagus which I just cut into small pieces. Mixed it all together, and divided the mixture on top of the pasty into the four cups - made a little lid from the pastry that was over for all four and they cooked in about 15 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees. They were delicious with a salad and ready in no time. It just made it a little bit special to eat real home-made food. (Forgot to take a photo..)

love both cards - have had so much fun with the wine labels - used that label and put on a geeky picture of son when he was about 13 yrs. old - decorated it and put "you have aged to perfection" on inside - he got a good laugh out of it. asparagus muffins sound yummy!

Love the cards and the tarts sound amazing! My husband will eat quiche if it is made in the mini tart pans and I think he would love this, too! I will be trying this soon! Thanks for the ideas both in card-making and in the kitchen!!!!

Gorgeous cards! I like your collage on the first one a lot! I also like how you included the definition! (I am sad that I did not purchase this set when it was available at my local scrapbook store).
Your recipe sounds delicious and something my husband and I would enjoy (not the kids because of the asparagus..they are not fans!).

Lovely creations! Your cooking sounds wonderful, so jummie! I have 2 small glass oven bowls and use them to make small quiches, so jummie! One of my favourites is with mushrooms, leek and walnuts and grated cheese (and ofcourse pastry and eggs). Hugs, Hanneke

I am always so impressed with how you use patterned papers with stamping in your artwork, it's such a wonderful design style. These cards are both so creative and unique and so utterly gorgeous.
Thanks for sharing your culinary tips, I'm sure the lack of a photo is testament to the deliciousness of the dish!
Have a lovely week~

Zwei schöne Karten, Jaqueline, sehr fein.
Ich liebe die Idee mit den Wein-Etiketten.

Und das Rezept hört sich auch noch köstlich an, hm... :-)

Viele Grüße

fabulous cards Jacqueline. I have a Tex Mex muffin tin that has very large holes and it makes amazing little pies... I usually do bacon and egg, often just putting a square of pastry on and no lids... the eggs puff up and look awesome.

Ira Huberts said...

Both of your cards are delightful Jacqueline! Btw, your muffins sound delicious, especially with that roquefort ;-)

Yvonne Garner said...

Hi. Jacqueline. Both cards is beautiful. This weekend I have fun playing with my gift-the wine lable. It was so funny and challeging. Thanks again for the gift.

Linda W. (ScrappinBari) said...

Just love both your cards, Jacqueline, but especially that sweet little face combined with the wine label. Your tarts sound delish - I will definitely share this recipe with my mom too; she loves asparagus and Roquefort :)

Petra Tillmann said...

Both cards are beautiful! The first one is a real "Jacqueline" card. Love it!

Brenda said...

Love that gorgeous tag in your second card Jacqueline! And I adore how the stamps you used in your first card actually go perfectly with the image you used! Love Asparagus tartlets! You can make a nice breakfast dish in your muffin tin too, line it with some bacon slices around the edge and add some tomato, mushrooms, (whatever you want really), and a cracked egg!

Beautiful pink creations! Lovely die cut on the second one and beautiful sweet image on the first. I love how you use your definitions collaged onto the image. Your recipes all sound so delicious and I am so happy your zest for cooking and creating is going so strong again!
