Pumpkin Cheesecake Please :)

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice with a bit of Pecan for fun :)

Good morning! Today begins a fun new challenge over at A Day for Daisies - "Please Pass the Traditions". Everyone is to make a card using a recipe that is part of your holiday traditions year after year. Well this pumpkin cheesecake recipe has been made faithfully every Thanksgiving for over 20 years in my family - back when David and I were first married to now, only now I make at least 2 to keep up with growing appetites and sons! :) it is soooooooooooooooo good and is looked forward to more than the turkey!

I decided to go with a fun gate fold card format so that the recipe could be tucked inside. This precious new digi from Tammy, 'Playing in the Pumkin Patch'. the image on the outside was watercolored; the image on the inside was lightly shaded with chalks. the papers are from Pixie Press, Earth Stripes. They were wrinkled and distressed, sprayed with flower power glimmer mist, and then lightly sponged with vanilla craft to age further. the leaves and pumpkins are from Making Memories and were treated the same. orange lace is some vintage from my stash. the little gliter chipboard pieces add just the right touch of shine and sprakle! buttons were touched with a bit of vanilla craft as well. the recipe card was lightly sprayed with the same flower power glimmer mist, which is actually a pale orange with gold spray. beautiful for fall!

I do hope that you can play along this fortnight! there is a super holiday freebie available for you to use and wonderful prizes are always up for grabs with ADFD challenges. plus, for today only as with every Friday release, all new release images are at a special discounted price. You need to check them out. Some beautiful Indian maiden images for Thanksgiving and adorable little friends for Christmas you most certainly don't want to miss! and as always, stop by the other DT members' blogs to see how they will inspire you with their creativity! :)

Fabulous Card Jen and the recipe sounds delicous too!

Ginger snaps are one of my favorite cookies, and I would never and have thought of them as being in cheesecake. Now I am craving a cookie with the wonderful ginger taste!! Yummy!!

I love the special treats of the Holiday Seasons and the scent of goodies baking in the oven!
