Let Your Heritage Shine!

Good morning, and a very good start of the week to you! In celebration of Columbus Day today, The Recipe Challenge Blog is challenging us to celebrate our heritage. In talking to my grandpa, he tells me that way back our family is from Irish decendants, so that's what I'm celebrating today. The Irish flag consists of three equal size rectangles of green, white, and orange, and while my recipe page is 6x6 square, you get the drift. I wanted to keep this one fairly simple, but with my love for bling, of course I had to find a place for some. I used this really neat scroll template I found at my local craft store to trace the swirls, and I handstitched those with orange embroidery floss. Julie sent me some beautiful goodies to play with, like those pretty pearls, and primas from her online store Scrapbook Store At Your Door. Julie is carrying a whole new line of kitchen themed papers and embellishments for all your recipe card needs. Please be sure to check out all the amazing pretties she is offering. They are absolutely fabulous, and so much fun!

I haven't actually tried this recipe yet. It was one in my stash of many. My family really loves roast pork loin, and I'm always looking for new flavor variations to try. This one sounds so yummy! In fact, I may try this one tonight! Please be sure to let me know how you like it, should you decide to give it a go. I'd love to hear what you think!

Thank you so very much for stopping by today! May you have a day filled with blessings, and happy stampin' to ya!
Love Ya!


Supply List:
Paper: Georgia Pacific white card stock, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie SU card stock
Accessories: Swirls template, Prima flower, half back self adhesive pearls (from Scrapbook Store at Your Door), DMC embroidery floss

Hey Lorie! Love the scrolled stitching on this card! And of course, you are the Bling Queen! LOL! I love how you changed up the layer just behind the recipe layer - so that it is opposite of the color on the portion of the flag - what a great touch!

Now you know I won't be trying this recipe given my veggie ways, but I will certainly share it because the rest of my family loves pork. TFS!!!
