Stamp Something GD card and some news


Good morning to you all, are you having a good week? Not long now til the weekend begins - woohoo!!! Friday again which means it is my last week as Guest Designer for Stamp Something . I can't believe it is 2 weeks already and my time as GD has come to an end. But ..... here is the brilliant news ..... I have been asked if I would like to stay on and become part of the Design Team!!! Of course I agreed immediately, so look out cos I am now an official member of their DT ... woohoo.
Calming down again, lol, and so onto this weeks challenge. The theme is RECIPE. Now I don't mind telling you I actually lost a bit of sleep over this one and did have a moment or two when I had no idea what I was going to make. In the end I thought of this ....

RECIPE FOR RELAXATION!




What more does a girl need after a hard day working to help forget the troubles of her day than this delightful recipe ..... bubble bath, wine and chocolate! Need I say any more!! No further instructions required, we all know what to do :o)




I have used a fab image from Pink Petticoat as my main design and stuck to a 'chocolate and cream' colour scheme throughout. I even managed to resist eating the chocolate whilst making the matching wrapper (aren't I good, lol) and avoided the wine. Something tells me though that they are likely to be demolished before bedtime tonight though.



The usual closer look at the main image. I am now in love with glamour dust! I love it - so easy to use even though everything ends up sparkling. Thanks to Dawny P for pointing me to the Paper Mill Shop where I made my little purchase.
Remember to pop over to the blog to see the other great creations by the DT and a huge thankyou to all who took part last week (over 100 of you, wow that is amazing!!)
Will finish talking now because this has ended up a looooong post (sorry). Enjoy your day, whatever you are doing

Congratulations on your DT place, not surprising when you make fabulous creations like this one, love it.
Word of warning about Glamour dust avoid using it just before cooking, families turn up their noses when their dinner glitters.
