A Favourite film and book of mine, Chocolat! These are the new Elusive Image cup cake stamps, made them chocolate flavour with crystallised violets on top with the help of my pro markers! The cherries are from the same stamp set again used pro markers to colour them in and then Anita's glossy to make the chocolate shiny. I distressed the tag with brushed corduroy, added the text and then finished off with some of Mum's gardening string. Made my self hungry now.........

In my garden I can see.................... many little critter's as our house is in a conservation area backing on to Phyllicrochan Woods, and also, we bought it from the man who owns the local zoo!!!! (I don't dig too deeply in our garden!!).
The rockeries are filled with tiny little mice, and I like to sit quietly outside watching them play. It makes me think of Brambley Hedge!
I have had a play with some of the thing's I bought at the NEC yesterday, so I've used my new Nellie's Oval frames, which I think are very pretty, and also the Meadow Flower's stamps by Joanna Sheen. I inked up the honeysuckle with stampcraft colour brushers, and then finished off with pro markers and also adding a couple of extra leaves with an Anita's morsals leaf or two. Not a gem in sight, although I am thinking of adding some glitter to the honeysuckle........ just a smidge!!

At long last I find myself with some "Me Time" and have made my first entry for the Bah Humbug Challenge!!!!!! Have to confess to being a very quick card though, these are the images I bought to do this year's "quick" Christmas cards, I thought it would be fun to put a recipe on the front, (haven't tried it yet, so don't know if it works!). Printed off on to 160gsm text and graphic paper, and then inked around the edges with brushed corduroy ink pad. Not a gem in sight...
