Momo's Challenge: Make something that is NOT a card

So I learned to make these at a CTMH party years ago and made one to hang on my fridge. It's a post it note clipboard made from coasters that I brought home from a restaurant. I just covered them with some patterned paper and stuck some magnets on the back that I got at the dollar store.

My Pink Stamper: Countdown to Karlee Day 1!

I decided to make my husband his favorite pie! Strawberry shortcake pie! Super easy to make! (recipe below) And of course I had to make a card to match haha! I used the simply charmed cartridge to make the card and just skipped the face layer to make the bowl.

1 package (4 serving size) Jello, strawberry flavor

2/3 C boiling water

1/2 C cold water

ice cubes

1 8 oz tub of Cool Whip

1 cup or so of chopped strawberries (save some big ones for the top of the pie!)

1 prepared no bake crust (I like the dark choc. Oreo flavor)

-Stir boiling water into gelatin in large bowl for 2 min. until dissolved.
-Mix cold water and ice to make 1 1/4 cups. Add to gelatin, stirring until slightly thickened, Remove any remaining ice.
-Stir in 8 oz of Cool Whip with wire whisk until smooth. Mix in fruit.
-Put in fridge (in the bowl) for 30 min until mixture is thicker and smooth.
-Spoon into prepared crust.
-Refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight if possible, till firm.
-Garnish with more strawberries!
