Wednesday Words

Although I know it's almost Easter today's card is jumping ahead a bit in preparation for Christmas and is for Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge.

And boy was this a challenge! A few attempts ended in the bin and then I remembered I'd cut out and kept - yes bit of a hoarder - an apron shaped template from a magazine. And I'm talking at least ten years ago! Well this spiked my creativity and I was on a roll.

I had great fun stamping the pattern on the apron and used three of my favourite Christmas colours. The pocket holds both the sentiment and some essential cooking items.

Now of course my brain is in overdrive thinking of all the other possibilities for an apron card - Easter, Halloween, barbecue, beach days, new home.......

Stamps: Uniko, Background builders Christmas, Essentially Christmas, All Occasion Sentiments #4; Clearly Besotted, Recipe For Love + matching die
Inks: SU, crumb cake, tempting turquoise, real red; Memento, tuxedo black

I'm so pleased you had time to visit today, huge thanks and please come back again soon.  And keep crafting!
