Food for Thought

It's FRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDDDDDDDDDDDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY! which means its Dare day! This week it was our Kathy's turn to dare us.

OK I'd like you to think FOOD this time and base your card around that subject. So let's see.....

it could have food depicted on it eg cupcake, CHOCOLATE, birthday cake, CHOCOLATE, tube of smarties, CHOCOLATE,.....bowl of fruit....
you could make it an invitation to a barbecue, dinner party, picnic, kids party etc
It could feature a recipe
hey, it could even have food stuck on it.....well, maybe.....

as long as it's clearly got a foodie theme it's allowed.

Well my original thought was going to be a wedding cake, as I seem to have weddings on the brain at the moment but then I got the munchies, W went to get me some sweets, and Hey presto a card was born.

Love Hearts


As usual I started with a white square card blank by Papermania. Sorting through my stash I found a cute candy coloured kit by Creative Memories called a "pastel Snap Pack". I has lots of stickers, die cuts, papers etc to make a mini album. I used some square diecuts from it in lemon and lilac, and a bubbly pastel border sticker. I attached the sticker along the top and bottom of the card, and the 4 die cut squares in the centre of the Card. I then opened a pack of yummy Love hearts sweets and chose 2 yellow and two lilac sweets and attached them with 3d foam to the squares.

So there you go a card good enough to eat - but please dont!

Dont forget to take a wander over to Daring Card Makers blog to see what everyone else on the team has done, we also welcome Tracy as our guest designer this week.

In other news ...... I have ordered my wedding dress!!! OMG its scary now!
