Another fab recipe at Cooking it up with Katie!!

Hi, hope you are keeping warm and cosy if you've got snowy weather. I've been battling on to work in in and its been a bit of a nightmare. Yesterday I joked that if we're going to have snow we should have plenty of it so I couldn't get to work - omg, I've got up this morning and I've never seen as much snow in my life lol. I can officially say I'm snowed in but the freezer is full so as long as I don't run out of DST I'll be quite happy :-)

Anyway we're halfway through another week so its time for another delicious recipe challenge at Cooking it up with Katie! This week we are lucky enough to have a fab sponsor:
I've used the beautiful Holly Fairy for this card and tag set. I just love this image and the sentiment is also from Prairie Fairy too. Our recipe this week is:
Card/Tag set
Use some green

I've coloured the images with promarkers and sakura stardust pens and distressed the edges with Vintage photo DI. The bps are all from an Anna Griffin kit I have had for years. I followed the sketch from Sketch and Stash for the layout. The border is punched with a MS punch and I've added some ribbon from my stash. I've also added some paper poinsettia flowers with yellow irridescent seed beads in the centres.

I'm entering my card and tag set in the following challenges:
Crafty Emma's Challenge: Vintage Christmas
Our Creative Corner: Tag you're it
Paper Romance: Add a tag
Sew Many Challenges: Red and Green
Delicious doodles: Celebrations
Wild Orchid: Old Fashioned Christmas

I've really enjoyed working with this beautiful image so make sure you cook up something with our recipe this week to be in with a chance of winning a fab prize from Prairie Fairy Designs!!

I'll be back later with some pics of the snow, I can't wait to take the dogs out in it, they are sooooo excited to see all the snow.

By the way, before I go check out the link in my sidebar - my lovely teamie Tammylee has some fab candy on offer!!

Thanks for calling by today, I guess as I'm snowed in I'll just have to spend the day in my craftroom lol
