My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Ready, Steady, Cook... DCM challenge

Errrrm... you can stop holding your breath cos I ain't cookin'... can't cook, won't cook is more normal for me. Gimme a microwave any day of the week... can't even boil an egg properly no matter how I try, I've used the clock... bought a timer etc and still they don't come out right so I scramble them

So you are saved from pics of charred foodies cos it's Kathy's turn to set The Daring Cardmakers challenge ... 'Ready, Steady, Cook and the recipe :-

3 Different papers
At least 1 piece of chipboard
At least 1 button
At least 1 piece of ribbon
1 optional extra of your choice
I had a lot of fun with this one and a happy accident too :D I used 3 BasicGrey papers from the Sultry range....

An outside piece from a Riff Raff Designs chipboard butterfly with paper, ribbon and a button for our fluttery friend
and my happy accident was that, as I inked the edge of my card I slipped... so I ended up creating a wood effect round the edges with felt tip pen... to cover it up :D

Then after layering the flowery paper down the side I added my optional extra..... yeah you guessed it.......
'BLING'... lol
Have a great day all

Very lovely, Chris! I like the wood grain around the side. I also love how you pop your embellishments like you do.
I love to cook, my husband thinks I could be a chef.. He also thinks I could be an artist and a massuese too...
My sister can burn water! She only has a kitchen because it came with her house.

xxx Have a great day!
