Erica's Craft Room Recipe & Baking Blog Hop


Good morning!! I thought Saturday would never get here! Looking forward to going to a little craft bizarre this morning with my mom and then spending time at home relaxing. It has been a stressful week with lots of not so good family happenings. I definitely need some relaxation this weekend!

I am looking forward to sharing my recipe card with you and reading all of your fun comments. I really love seeing them!

You should have come to my blog from Amanda's blog http://craftsbyamanda.blogspot.com/

If you just happened to come here first, please start back at

My Cricut Craft Room- http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/

so you dont miss any of the wonderful projects that are being posted today. As always, Erica from Erica's Craft Room will be offering blog candy if you stop and leave a comment on each blog.


For this hop, I wanted to make a recipe card for my husband's grandma's Cherry Delight. It is a favorite and something that is a tradition and always requested for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday dinners. Grandma was one of the sweetest women that you would ever have wanted to meet and I was honored when she gave me this recipe. The recipe card itself was super quick and easy to put together.

First I cut the recipe card base 6 x 6. I cut a layer from the printed paper and cut it just slightly smaller probably about 5.75 x 5.75. Next. I attached my bow and ribbon which I found in stash in my ribbon jar. I typed out the recipe and printed it in red and matted it on matching red card stock. The final touch was the cute little cherry that I cut using Preserves. The cherry and all its layers were cut at 2.75"

Next on the hop is Beckie http://justbcreativecrazy.blogspot.com/
