Just Like a Ladybug!

Today I want to share a simple card I made using some of my new Unity Stamps! These images are from Everyday Adorable. I love this versatile and fun set! My colors were chosen to play along in Jeanne's "Just Like a Ladybug" Color Challenge at the Unity Hip Hop today~

It's time to share one of my favorite summer recipes.

Chilled Vanilla Coffee

2 T. instant coffee granules
3/4 C. warm water
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
4 C. ice cubes

Dissolve coffee in water; blend in milk and vanilla. Pour mixture into a blender and gradually add ice cubes; blend until smooth. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.

I am off to Estes Park for a weekend with the whole family, so I will see you on Monday! Thanks for coming by!

This is too cute Judy!! Love the colors with the layout!! Will have to try the recipe! I love what you have done with your blog background!! I may have to ask some of you gals how to put the blogs on the sidebar so it shows when a new creation has been posted for each person. Love that!
