Mish I love your card and your sister will too! I have to confess, Sambuca or Ameretto in my coffee is always a special treat !! LOL !! I'll bring some to retreat ! :)
While we're on the topic of coffee, I thought today's post would be perfect. Do you like iced coffees? I LOVE them and could drink several a day...but I usually settle for about one a week when I'm in town. For under $2 bucks, McDonald's has awesome iced coffees!

Check it out here(I hope this link works):


Last year, I was vacationing at my sister's in Colorado. Every time we went out and about, we stopped at a McDonald's for an iced coffee. We saw an employee making them so we jotted down what we saw him doing. Since then we've been making iced coffees at home and they are GOOD! Jordan loves them too but I have to cut her off, she gets too wired! At the coaxing of my sister, I drank TWO LARGE iced coffees one day and boy was I bouncing off the walls. I was so geared up I couldn't sleep all night. My eyes wouldn't even shut!

So I decided that my recipe file needs that recipe before I forget it. I made a recipe card for my sister too. She'll get a kick out of the little story that I wrote on the card. I typed the recipe on my computer and printed it off on cardstock and cut to size. Patterned paper strip is from Cosmo Cricket. The cute stamp is an Itty Bitty Lockhart image called Hot Chocolate, perfect for coffee too. I used the new long oval Nestabilities from Spellbinder's, they are so awesome...great for those stamped images that need a skinnier space. The coffee mugs are colored in with Copic markers, originally embossed with coffee scented embossing powder but mine must have been too old....smelled good in the jar but the scent disappeared when I embossed it.
Well, back to my stamping table.....DH is umpiring a baseball tournament for the little boys til supper time, the girls are away on their Girl Scout trip......what's a girl to do but........STAMP!!!

Mish, Love all your recipe cards lately. I'm going to have to try the coffee. I'm not a coffee lover, but a good jult sometime, could help.

Mish, your recipe cards are inspiring! I'd love to start a recipe book like yours!
2 questions... where do you get the inserts for your book that fit the cards so well, and second, is that a font on your recipe cards, or is that your handwriting? If that's a font, I love it, and would like to purchase it. Would you email me where you purchased it, if it's a font? Thanks!

I LOVE iced coffee, but when I make them at home, they never turn out right.. What brand creamer and syrup do you use?! Thanks!!

Adorable little cards. I wish I had the time/ effort to convert all my recipes into something like that!
