"Create" ... Easy Cornbread

This is so easy and resembles Marie Calendar's cornbread.  A sweeter (but not too sweet) cornbread that when served warm with honey butter is . . . Wonderful!

Easy Cornbread

1 box Jiffy Brand Yellow Cake Mix
2 boxes Jiffy Brand Corn Muffin Mix
3 eggs
Water & Milk

In one bowl, mix cake mix as directed on package.  In another bowl, mix muffin mix as directed.  Gently fold the two together and pour into a greased 9x13 pan.  Bake at 400 for 20 min.  Check with a toothpick in the center to make sure it's done.

"Create" ... a Card or Two

Today I completed two cards I had started a while back.  One was for a bridal shower and the other I'm leaving blank to fill in a sentiment later, depending on the occasion.  The dandelion is from Lyrical Letters and I can't for the life of me find which cartridge I used for the swirly frame.  After my memory laspe is gone, I'll update this info.  It's so fun getting old.
**Thanks to LN on the Cricut MB (love that MB), I found it.  It's from Storybook, key 7, accent frame and border options.
