Creative craft challenge recipe

Lets get cooking. Over at creative craft challenges this time we have a fab recipe for you all, and you can use it for any kind of card , so you could make any last minute christmas cards, any birthday cards for those poor souls who have birthdays near christmas as there are never any decent cards around for them at this time of year are there unless made by someone crafty. We have a fab sponsor again in The Crafty Pad, and what a great stamp on offer too, guess shoe images are coming back in fashion, wouldn't you just love a pair of these?

Oops best tell you the ingredients, you will need, 1 ribbon, 2 papers and 3 brads.

I think I probably am setting myself up for some yelling at with all the snowflakes I put on my card for my sister, but I did stop when I initally thought about putting 'let it snow' as the sentiment, I don't think it would have gone down well. Life hasn't been easy for my baby sis, being a psychiatric community nurse especially when she does overnight on call. She use to love the snow but I think it might be wearing a little thin by now.

The papers are freebies again from last year the ribbon is from my stash. The 'Twas the night before christmas' stamp was from stamp addicts and I love it as a background. I used another fab Sugar Nellie sassy girl, I coloured her the same as my WOW card for their competition though not sure I improved on my last attempt much. I decided to make an easel card for a change and the glitter snowflake I made by drawing around the hole left by a chipboard snow flake and simply covering in purple glitter, all topped off with metalic brads.

So come on lets see what you all manage to cook up for our challenge, it almost sound like an invention test on australian masterchef, wish the uk had a similar format it would make it far more interesting. Sorry side tracked again.
