Cooking Up A Card!

ASproject3a0909

John would be proud of me if he was here right now ... I managed to follow a recipe :0)

Some of my friends out there know that I don't cook ... ever ... well I have about three times in the 10 years we have been together :0)

So today when I saw the recipe challenge on The Pink Elephant Blog ... I had a minor panic attack ... on closer inspection I saw that all I needed was a punch, some polka dots and a tag ... Now that is the sort of recipe I like!

Mabel Lucie Attwell provided the image ... with the help of The Artistic Stamper of course along with the larger flowers from The Flower Power range and the rest of the card is either Bazzill or distress inks or a small flower punch without a name ... the holes from a hole punch ... a tag aASproject30909nd some spotty ribbon.

For those of you that wanted to know what I did with my art ... the answer is ... some of it is DT stuff and has to be submitted ... I make most of my own cards for friends, family etc., ... the rest of the cards I sell for charity ... I keep the odd few bits I make ... that I actually like and the rest just gets dumped in plastic containers that I go through from time to time and shudder ... wondering what on earth I was thinking when I made them!

I am keeping my beer mats though ... even the ones I don't like ... they will be a colour chart for my distress inks to use as a reference.

That's all folks! Thank you for popping by!

Can't believe you 'dump' some of your work in containers! What a tragedy, they should be out on display or in my home, round my wrist :) ;) Have you never thought of doing a craft stand? Your stuff is gorgeous.

Anyhoo - to the card today, I love this one. Can't believe I didn't spot these images at Ally Pally but then I did spend out pretty quickly.

Great card Linda - I love that image. Know what you mean about recipes - I had a panic at the end of my card as I forgot the dots (sheesh how crazy am I?)
