Zuchini bread and card

This is my card for a few of this weeks challenges...I've been a little behind! Mondays challenge was this fun grid background, Tuesdays challenge was the color challenge, orchid opulence, barely banana, black, white, and going gray (I used it as his shadow!) and today's sketch challenge

I think it turned out pretty cute! The flamingo is from High Hopes Rubber stamps and the background swirls are from an SU! set called a Beautiful thing. And it also happens to be a good friend of mine's birthday...Judy over at Joy in a Jar...so go on over and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Thankd for the fun sketch!!!

Stamps: A beautiful think by Stampin' Up, Flamingo by High Hopes
Ink: Staz on black, orchid opulance, barely banana, going gray
Paper: barely banana, orchid opulance, whisper white, basic black
Accessories: scallop punch, 1/16th in punch, gingham ribbon, markers, ruler

For church tonight I made a super yummy (IMO!) Zuchini bread...love it! I did some altering to the recipe, but I think it was good altering...can never have too much cinnamon or nutmeg!

Want the recipe? Here it is just for you!

3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil (I used Olive oil)
2 cups white sugar
2 cups grated zucchini
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour (I used half white, half wheat)
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I omited the nuts in case of allergies)

I also added nutmeg...didn't measure, just tossed it in there

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F ( 165 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8x4 inch loaf pans.
In a large bowl, beat eggs until light and frothy. Mix in oil and sugar. Stir in zucchini and vanilla. Combine flour, cinnamon, soda, baking powder, salt and nuts; stir into the egg mixture. Divide batter into prepared pans.
Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, or until done.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the recipe and the card Happy Stampin' to all and may God Bless you always!
