woohoo, it's blog hop day and boy am I excited to be a part of this.
Now, if you've stumbled across my blog and are wondering what all the fuss is, then have a wee jaunt over to the Sugar Nellie blog where you will find out all about this special Recipe For All Seasons hop. You'll then be directed to each of the Sugar Nellie DT and a few guests to see what we've created to show off to you.
So if you're on track, you'll have just left Sarah's blog, and once you've left a wee comment for me then you can hop on over to see what the fabulous Donalda has cooked up for you.
Have you noticed all the cooking/baking references yet? yup, the theme is A Recipe For All Seasons, and that's exactly what Sugar Nellie stamps are, and in keeping with the theme all the DT and Guests have made up recipes so you can recreate their creations yourselves.
SO without further ado, straight from the oven (aka, the craft room)....
Promarkers: Pastel Green, Mint Green, Soft Green, Powder Blue, Arctic Blue, Poppy, Crimson, Burgundy, Pumpkin, Bright Orange, Holly, Cool Grey 3 & 4, Vanilla and Raw Sienna.

- Colour the Snowman with Gift with promarkers

- Cut a square of the MME paper to approx 5.5" square, mat this onto the reverse side of the remaining paper and trim to leave a narrow border all around.
- Adhere the length of ribbon down the left hand side of your matted square and secure the ends on the reverse
- Adhere this matted square to a card blank
- Adhere your matted image in the top right hand corner of the card
- Die cut a flower, leaves and swirls from the scraps of card and attach these to the bottom right hand corner of the card with 3d foam pads, adding card candy to the centre of the flower to decorate.
I was so excited about joining the blog hop that I got a bit carried away with these gorgeous Home Grown Snowmen stamps and used another one to make a decorated photo frame....
I coloured Snow Juggler with promarkers to match the previous one and carefully cut him out, including the snowballs, then glued him to the frame that I'd covered with the same MME I Believe paper. I used 3d foam pads to attach the snowballs for a bit of dimension.
Donalda's blog to see her fantabulous creation - have fun hopping and thankyou in advance for leaving a comment, I really appreciate them.
Edited to add: For Linda, the dies used to cut the flowers and the intricate leaves underneath it are all one set -
