Thank you Angie for your wonderful Card and the recipe for the Double Chocolate Chex Mix, I can't wit to try thisd. Looks SOOOOO easy,
This is so long over do. I have enjoyed opening each and every card. I've enjoyed reading each and every recipe and note. You see the last few weeks all I've been able to do is watch TV and read. While making all the cards and holiday treat I some how got tennis elbow from papercrafting. How is that possible. Well I can do it. I guess you aren't suppose to cut paper for hours at a time.
This is my favorite swap of the year. I just love to get cards in the mail.
Thank you each and everyone of you for being part of this.
I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and and Happy Healthy New Year!
Blessings my friends

Can someone help me? Grandkids were here and moved things around for me and now I can't find the recipe from Beaches111 for the Butter Pecan Bundt Cake and I am going to fix it for Monday. Can someone post the recipe for me?
Thank you so much
I found the recipe. After sleeping last night I thought why not just call grandson and ask where he put it. He remembered and yep it was right where he said it would be. Whew!
I would also like to thank Kay for a nice card and recipe, Lisa(elijo) for the nice card and letter,Diana for I think the smallest card I have ever seen but o how neat,Angela,and Marcie.

Again, a HUGE thank you to one and all!!
I just found a few more cards in my stack...probably were from Thursday when I had the fender bender in the post office parking lot. I do not plan on going back to the post office until the 27th since I am working tomorrow and Wednesday and since I have to get a slow leak in a tire repaired this afternoon....so if there are any more cards in my box, which there probably are, I will put the thanks for them out on Thursday.
Willie Perry, cute poinsettia card (can never have too many poinsettia cards) and recipe for Fresh Apple Cake (sounds good)
Suzy Brannon, another Christmasy card with various symbols on it and a recipe from her friend Bonnie for Buttercream Frosting. I am sure you are missing both your Father and Bonnie this year. Sorry you have had so many losses the last couple of years.
Faith is not demanding what we want; it is trusting God's goodness in spite of life's tragedies. Dave Branon
I guess I put my thank you on the wrong post, but I would like to thank everyone for all the cards and recipes I received. I have already tried a few of the recipes.
Sharon Smutt (Dipsydoodle)
I would like to thank Debbie, and Colleen for the cards. I really wish we could do this each month
I have some more thank yous to send out. They all have beautiful cards, but I put them up on the wires before I wrote down who sent them, so except for the cute little one from DianaG not sure which is which without pulling them all down.
Joan C for the Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies...
Angela A for handwritten Gingerbread recipe. You get votes from me for handwriting all of this. Yikes.
MarcieH for Grandma's Crispy Rice Treats
DebbieJ for Pineapple Casserole
DianaG for Whipped Shortbread (yum!)
ColleenS for Chocolate Hazelnut Butter Cookie Cups (sounds delicious)...actually they all sound delicious!
Sorry, I didn't give individual shout outs. I loved all of your cards and can't wait to try all of the recipes. My kids and I had a blast hanging the cards all over the living room wall. They were just as excited as me to get them- I made it a family affair this year. Every time a cluster of cards arrived, we took turns looking at where they were from and reading the messages!!! Thank you to everyone!!!!!
