Recipe Swap in Print

You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be –
I had a mother who read to me.

Catered Crop Recipe Swap Button

What's black and white and red all over. No, it's not a sunburned penguin. It's books! and newspapers and even the yellow pages . . . But, before we get to all of that, we need to pick some winners from our Button challenge.

You guys really rocked my world and popped my buttons with pride. There were so many great entries. But, I gotta ask you. How cool would it be if stars were made of buttons and buttons grew on trees? Congratulations to Emma H and Allisa for being awarded the Winning Recipes. You're invited to join our Top Chef designers in our next Quickfire and grab the Winning Recipe button.

Congratulations also to player #46, Cheryl Gorka. You get to go shopping at Jellypark for two fabulous Claire Keay digital stamps. The Jellypark images are so darling and Cheryl's so amazing, I can't wait to see what she makes.

I love big books, and I cannot lie. If books are your constant companion, you're going to love our next challenge. We're going to get creative with the printed word because our featured ingredient is Print!

Playing along is easy as A-B-C.

  • Just use a printed page or newsprint somewhere in your project.
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or just add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, February 4.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.

Need some ideas? Here's a whole gallery of creative ways to incorporate print into your projects. You can click on the inspiration board below to go to a Pinterest board with the sources of these pictures and more gorgeous ideas and brilliant tutorials.

There's more yummy goodness. We have a Texas size treat for one lucky player.

Texana Designs is back in the house. Texana Designs is the brain child of my sweet friend, Jimmye Sue Mitchell, and her darling daughter Maggie. Their rubber stamp images with a Texas flair are all designed by native Texan artists. But, don't reckon ya'll have to have a Texas twang to play with their stamps – there's a whole shootin' match of fun images to suit yer fancy. And, there's a whole rodeo of fun at the Texana Blog and Texana Facebook page where you might bump into Top Chef Libby Hickson and an outlaw like me.

Be sure to check out the Texana Designs store because one lucky player will win a $25 gift certificate to go shopping!

Now . . . let's get cooking.

Be sure to come back Sunday, January 29, to check out what our Top Chef, and Guest and Celebrity Chefs have dished up for you.
