MIM Papers and Food

Hello Everyone,
Welcome back to another MAKE IT MONDAY 

It is so cold here in my wee part of the world....not that I mind too much, but the dog wont go outside...he spends all his time walking backwards when I open the door....I have to drag him out....unless I say 'walkies'...that makes him move.

Congratulations to last weeks winners, there were so many lovely projects last week.

I spotted this little beauty, and chose her for my favourite.

Such lovely colouring by Frances # 147 

Right...another week is kicking in, and another sponsor...

Cupcake Cards and Craft are offering a fabulous prize this week of the new release [Soft Whispers]
paper collection. Very pretty papers.

I was so lucky to be able to have a play with a set of these papers...gorgeous.

My card is a bit pink, because I had a little play with the lighting, and when I up loaded it, I had made it so light you couldn't see the I played again, and now it's pink.

The papers I used were...background..textured 'pretty rose'
                                                             leaves 'pretty rose'
                                                             punched edge 'Awaken Hazle'
                                                             Flowers  'pretty little apple'
                                                             flower centers 'textured pretty little apple'

The image is 'Crooked cake' from Carmen  and was a freebie.
Coloured with pencils, and added tiny pink sea beads around the edge of the cake.
Left the spots and flowers uncoloured for a reason.........................................[I forgot]

Entering this card in a challenge at Hooked on craft [sweet treats]

Thats it...away we go...another week has started..on your marks...get set....GO..

Thanks everyone, see you all later....

Hi Chrissy. This is my third time of coming over and seeing your wonderful card. The first two times I was running way late and never did get to tell you how much I love how you have colored this and put the sparkles on it as well. I love, love your cake stamp. I so wish I could have gotten it to go to the free page and I think it is just adorable. I hope that you and Harry are staying warm. Did your Grandson's win their rugby match the other day?
Hugs, Lisa
