This weeks recipe at Cooking it up with Katie

Good morning, Wednesday already and time for another fab recipe at Cooking it up with Katie!! This week our recipe is an easy one so I hope you'll  join us and use these ingredients in your creation: Red. Layers, Christmas. See told you it was easy!! This week we are sponsed by Stampin Dragon Designs and I've used this gorgeous candy cane image for my project.

I got the blank snowglobe from the pound shop (2 for a quid, bargain or what??) and stamped a background using an elusive images snowflake and red ink onto some white card. I printed the image out 3 times and coloured it with promarkers, cut it our and decoupaged it, i've tried to show the layers in the pic but i had a struggle. I had to shake the snowglobe, put it down, grab my camera and take the pic as I wanted to be able to catch the glitter swirling around - NOT easy, it took me about 6 attempts (and some choice words lol)

I stamped a lovely Christmas verse on the back but forgot to take a pic. The verse is from Elusive images and says "A hug is a perfect Christmas gift, one size fits all and its easily returned all year round"

I'm entering my Christmas ornament in the following challenges:
Incy wincy: Christmas gifts
There's magic in the air: Christmas ornament
Corrosive challenge: red and white christmas
