PeachyKeen Challenge 29 Recipe Card

                    
Hello! Sorry I'm late posting this today, but I had internet issues. Grrr. The challenge this time is to create a recipe card using your favorite summer BBQ or picnic recipe. For my recipe card I did my ALL TIME FAVORITE pistachio salad a.k.a. "green stuff"! I have LOVED it since I was a baby! mmmmmm

I used vellum to hand cut a frosted bowl for my pistachio salad. I used the sweet faced marshmallows from the Hot Cocoa stamp set for my pistachio salad.  I popped some of the marshmallows up to add dimension.

I did a google search for pistachio's and I found some good images. I thought the nut sticking out of the shell looked kind of like a nut version of ms. pacman...So I used the small Critter Faces set to stamp their eyes. I then {of course!} gave both of my little pistachio girls twine bows in their "hair". Giggle giggle. ;o)
 I hope you will play along with us! We will have 2 winners again this time! One will be judged, and one winner will be drawn at random. The judged winner will receive the Funshine Faces stamp set. The random winner will receive the adorable Henny Penny stamp. I look forward to seeing your creations!!!! Happy stamping to you!!!

Pistachio wishes and Marshmallow dreams!
Nikki
