So..... is it cheating if I start trying out some of these recipes before we send them out? :D

 

April, I think that would fall under quality control. :)

Count me in, as this is the time of year I love making cookies for sharing with neighbors and friends. Can't wait to see the beautiful recipes.

Did my quality control baking yesterday and then gave them to my neighbors so I wouldn't be tempted to recheck the quality over and over 3 dozen times. LOL. And then I got my card done and it's in April's inbox now...can't wait to see what we come up with. I have a coupon for Costco for 100 free 4x6 prints...guess how I'll use that?

Newbie (to this challenge!) question - Are we supposed to use the template that was posted or is it optional?

The template is optional! There are a lot of other 4x6 templates that work really well for recipes too. You don't have to use a template either, just make sure your card is 4x6 and 300 pixels per inch (1200X1800 pixels).

It doesn't have to be super fancy. We love pretty cards, but the yummy recipe really is more important. ;)

How fun! I love a recipe swap! :2468who-do-we-appreciate:

 

 

We have one every month, you should join us (if you haven't already)!!! Each month is a different 'theme'. If you submit a card, you will receive copies of all the others that were submitted, too. :)

I think if you try them out you should send some samples, especially to those of use close by. It really should be a decision by committee!

Oh I always love this event. I have quite the collection from past years. I just might have to try and get one done for this one too! :)
