"Can We Eat Paper?"

Hi Blog Friends!
I KNOW you are SURPRISED to see me back here so soon! Well, Flourishes has a
(Can you tell I want to WIN???? LOL)
Have you been getting a GOOD LOOK at the stamps they're releasing?
  If you'd like to take a peek, check here:
You'll find out all the details to this challenge too!!!
This challenge is about the New Year!
So, I'm REALLY NOT ONE to do "resolutions" for the New Year! I ALWAYS FAIL!
BUT, I thought about this one & the stamps I have....let me show you what I came up with!
I had to do another Christmas creation, but can you tell what my "GOAL" is?
COOKING!!!! I KNOW my SWEET hubby would appreciate it!!! I'm usually playing with paper when time comes to make lunch or dinner! He usually can be guaranteed ONE MEAL a day--breakfast! That's a pretty easy meal to do, because we both need some fuel to get the day going!
 This morning, we had CAKE! (Shhhh! Don't tell our kids!)
I know my main image is a PIE! BUT, this doesn't necessarily mean that I want to cook PIE, as good as it might be, & as much as I LOVE SWEETS, I need to COOK MEALS! AND that means
 MORE THAN SOUP! I LOVE to make soups, because you can put them on & let them simmer,
 & go &  play with paper!

I'm kind of "Old fashioned" & "Traditional!" So, I see it as my duty to prepare the meals! My hubby is pretty good at cooking & has come a long way from our early years of marriage! He's gone from cooking eggs to baking cakes! He makes pretty good cakes by Dunkin Hines! But, there again, we need MEALS! Do you think there is ANY CHANCE that we could EAT PAPER?
THAT would be FABULOUS!!!!!!!!! I wouldn't skip a beat with my paper crafting then!

This is the insert for my card! NOTICE it says: " Happiness is Homemade!" I have to tell you that if we COULD eat paper, us paper crafters, would PROBABLY be ALOT HAPPIER!

This is the backside of the insert---a PERFECT place to write that Homemade recipe for the recipient!  I just cut an Index Card to fit the backside. Sometimes, when you are "paper deficient" you need those lines, as you can't write straight!

Well, there you have it, my goal for the New Year is to COOK MORE!
I chose to do a File Folder Card, because it reminds me of a Recipe Card!

Here is where I found the instructions for this File Folder Card:
