In The Kitchen

Wow, it's hard to believe that it is 10 days since I last posted on my blog. However,
tonight's the night (as Rod Stewart would sing), because it is the pink fairies' turn at 
Crafty Little Fairies to bring you a new challenge. Our theme this week is an unusual one,


Thank you to our wonderful sponsors for this week, 

Nana Connie won a prize voucher from Delicious Doodles in December, and as
she is on their Design Team, she kindly reoffered her voucher, so this week we
have two prizes. Thank you, Nana Connie.

Remember, your entry must have a stamped or digital image to be eligible
for the prize of a stamp of your choice, or a voucher.  

My lovely blogging friend, Pauline, has just started a second blog to display her new-found
hobby, baking. At Christmas, Pauline sent me one of her stunning card creations, and a 
fabulous set of LOTV clear sentiment stamps (I have used one of them on this card). 
They cover so many occasions, so will be very versatile. Thank you so much Pauline. 
I wanted to send Pauline a "thank you" card, so when I saw that the theme of the 
challenge was 'In The Kitchen', the timing was perfect. 

Isn't this image adorable!, and so perfect for a card to Pauline. I am very sorry to tell
you that I do not know the brand of the stamp. It was on a sheet of clear stamps
that were free with a magazine I bought on one of my visits to London several 
years ago. I also cannot remember the name of the magazine...Perhaps one 
of you may recognise the image, and enlighten me. All the other images in 
the set are equally cute. 
Edited : While having a big 'tidy up' of my MASSIVE collection of magazines,
I found the one that had the free sheet of stamps!! It is Cardmaking and Papercraft,
Issue 103, and the stamps are designed by Adam Pescott.

The very appropriate paper was also free with yet another magazine I bought
in London, but cannot remember which one. I put Glossy Accents on the 
cherries, but this does not show up in the photos.
