Cooking it up with Katie, a fruity recipe this week....

We've got another fun recipe for you over at Cooking it up with Katie, and some exciting news .... we're going to be having a new challenge every week instead of every fortnight!! Katie has some exciting recipes and some fabulous sponsors lined up!! This week we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and we were lucky enough to use one of Robyn's fab images, I chose Daisy Days. Our recipe this week is:

  • Get fruity

  • Circles, and

  • Paper Piecing
Here's my card:

Daisy is coloured with promarkers and her dungarees are paper pieced with red gingham paper. I've used some gorgeous papers, frame and sentiment from Raspberry Road designs. The papers are distressed with my craft knife and vintage photo DI. I cut circles out of the left over bps and scrunched them up before layering them up to make some flowers. I also added some paper roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, a little green organza ribbon and a plastic strawberry. I found this little strawberry, it had fallen off an artificial strawberry plant so I chopped it in half with my craft knife and attached it with some silicone glue

I'm also entering Daisy in the following challenges:
Daring Cardmakers: Its a girl thing
One stop craft challenge: Patterns (I chose gingham)
Allsorts: Dressing up
The Crafty Pad: Ribbons and flowers
Just scraps: Paper Patchwork
Incy Wincy: Summer fun

Thanks for popping in, I'm looking forward to seeing what you can cook up with our recipe this week!!
