So, it's not a card but....

don't they look yummy? Just for the sake of posting something different I thought I'd share my pies with you and their yummy recipe. And the fact that I didn't stamp because I was making those!!!! I love these fun summer pies because I think they are easy and they don't make a lot of mess.
I love this time of year with all the fresh produce and yesterday I stopped and bought raspberries, black raspberries, and strawberries. I made 3 pies, one of each kind. One is for us, one is going with me to work, and one will go with my hubby to a picnic tonight. So here you go:

Start with:

Make in the pie tin pie crust:

1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar

mix in the pie plate

mix together in mixing cup:

2 tbsp. milk

Pour over dry ingredients and mix. Press around pie plate and then poke bottom with a fork. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Let cool.

2 tbsp. cornstarch
then add
1 c. water
