Molly the Chef....

Happy Sunday folks... It has been a wonderful long weekend for me and I've managed to find some time to play at my craftdesk.  We're in the throes of winter in SA and the weather has been downright miserable (not complaining), but perfect for staying indoors and crafting up a storm.

I have a friend who loves cooking.  She'll be celebrating her birthday in July and this card was lovingly made for her, using the a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e Molly Bloom stamp called Molly the Chef, which you can purchase from Which Craft in the UK.

I've distressed the cardstock again, now that I've learnt how to do it properly and am loving this look.  Isn't it wonderful that you learn something new every day... and thankfully there are some of us that are keen to learn in order to move to the next level... well, at least that's what I aspire to do...

I am sure my friend is going to love her birthday card as I really had such fun making it and adding all sorts of embellies to give it that shabby sort of look.  Aren't those Milk and Eggs just too cute for words...   I just love them!  In fact, I just love all these Molly Bloom stamps !

As I don't own (or have the space) for those machines that cut cards into wonderful shapes, I purchased these beautiful scalloped cards  and envelopes from Little Claire Designs in the UK and they were incredibly well priced, as was the postage. I highly recommend my SA friends to purchase from Claire. My order arrived within 2 weeks, all beautifully packaged.  This time I only ordered 20.  I've just placed another order for goodies from Little Claire, yay!  Can't wait for it to arrive.

Don't you just love my new ribbon which was purchased from Super Floral in Paarden Eiland ?   I photocopied a recipe for a 60 Minute Trifle and distressed it to add behind Molly.  I quite like this effect.  Got to use my Martha Stewart Scallop Dot border punch again.. another fave!

Take care dear friends. Have a wonderful week ahead, blessings Sharon x
