Card for Alivia & Buttermilk Pie

 Hello, How are you all doing? I'm doing good. Going to be in the 70s today. My favorite kind of weather.

My niece Alivia is turning 18. I thought she was turning 17. I was so shocked when I found out. Wow time flies.

I decided to make her a card using a free digital image from  All Dressed Up Digital Stamps. 

I know It's not your usual looking birthday card, But I loved the image so much I just had to use it.  

I colored it with my Spectrum Noir and Master's Touch Alcohol Marker's. I'm still new to using alcohol marker's and I know it's not perfect. But I'm o.k.with it and I think my niece Livi will love it. 

I just got my order from Stampin Up and had got the doilies that are retiring. So I decided on using one on this card. I did cut it in half so I can use the other half on another card.  

I made a couple of Buttermilk pies yesterday and thought I would share it with you all.

Buttermilk Pie

Preheat oven to 350

You will need-

I stick of Oleo (Butter)
1-1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup- Flour
3 Eggs
1/2 cup Buttermilk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 pie crust

Melt Oleo (Butter), add sugar and flour. Mix well. Add beaten eggs, buttermilk and vanilla.

My crust tends to burn, so I put aluminum foil around edges.

Pour mixture into thawed pie crust and place on a pizza pan. 

Bake for 45 minutes at 350. I cook mine at 325 part of the time because my oven seems to burn it if I don't.

 I use to make these more often when my kids were still at home but  Not as much anymore. This is not a pie you want if you are trying to diet. Well you can at least have a tiny piece.  

If you would like to make this pie,but don't have buttermilk, Here is a link to one of my post that shows how to make a substitute for  buttermilk     Buttermilk substitute
