Good morning to you all, I hope you are all keeping warm. It has turned back into winter here and the heating is back on !
So I've been staying home with my craft goodies and keeping myself amused !

Todays post is my DT card for The creative cottage challenge blog.
This week we want to see some food/drink on your creation. Head on over to the blog here and check out the other DT cards, they're fab, I consider myself V lucky to be on the team alongside some ultra talented girlies - ((hugs)) to ya girls x
Ok so this week One lucky winner , chosen at random, will win the "something sweet" kit. If you have been here before you will realise that this is one of my fav's and I have used it again this week to made a quick mini card.

I used my new Fiskars paper crimper to add a bit more texture to my mini card. I gave my background paper a vertical ridged effect and my pink middle band a diagonal ridged effect - it sort of reminded me of the icecream cornet !
The fab sentiment/image is a freebie from Raindrop Echo Designs - thanks Ann - pop over to her blog for a look. She has some fab cards and tutorials on her blog as well as some great freebies.
All I had to do was some quick colouring with my pencils and add some stickles then popped it onto a circle die cut with my nestabillities and my bigshot.
I added a little ribbon and a flower with a button just to finish it off.

A really quick card but I hope you like it x
((hugs)) Suzie xx

Wow Suzie!!I adore your card hon, absolutely fantastic!! In fact, I loved the crimping so much that I had to go and buy my own he he!! I got the X-Cut one... don't know if the Fiskars one is the same, but it makes a cute little noise at the very end of the crimping... I can't stop laughing (although I am a bit of a loon he he!!)
