What Should I Make……


Tilda is wondering what should she make to take to her friends as a Hostess Gift when she goes for dinner.  I know that whatever Tilda decides it will be so yummy!  And as an extra treat she will be presenting the dish with a greeting card to show how grateful she is to have such good friends.

Here is the card Tilda ordered from me to present her homemade treat.

Card Recipe: 

Image by Magnolia known as OOPs (A Little Yummy For Your Tummy collection).  Image colored using Premium Prisma Color Pencils except for skin which was colored with Copic Marker E00.  Designer Papers called The Rustic Stack (DCWV).   All flowers purchased from Wild Orchids Crafts, The Lattice Pendant behind Tilda is by Spellbinders and purchased from StampingScrapping.  Lattice Pendant & Tag made from Kraft Paper (my stash).  Sentiment on tag created with Just Rite Stamp.  Printed paper on card is from an old Cookbook (torn & distressed).  All other embellishments are from my stash.

Now there is one more embellishment that I used that was created by accident.  Check the photo below and let me know what its made of & how it was created. The first person with the right answer in their comment will win a mystery gift.

  7. Wow, this is amazing! I love the colors and the flowers are fabulous. Your coloring is amazing! Hmmmm, the dew drops looks like blobs of Fabri-Tac glue or Glossy Accents that's dried up. That's my guess. Hugs, Rosemary

  16. Well it is a mystery to me Fran - my first thought was something like Glossy accents - put on some plastic and then popped up. What isn't a mystery is how pretty your card is. It has a very nice antique feel to it. What a neat idea, a page from a real cook book. Now that is worth borrowing! This card has a really nice feel to it Fran - love the way you have arranged the flowers - nice art work!!

  17. so lovely and charming Fran! Love the vintage look of Tilda and your embellishing! TFS!
