A Wednesday Recipe

Can it really be time for Wednesday's Jingle Belles again already?


Well, it's the middle of the week so it must be although it's hard to keep up with the days right now. Weeks are simply flying by and it really is week #15 over at Jingle Belles - The Ghost of Christmas Present.


This week's challenge was set by Clare over at Miscanthus Crafts and she decided we needed to cook up a bit of a card recipe...


The ingredients are:
1 - as white as a ghost
2 - a present
3 - a bow or knot
4 - a touch of traditional Christmas colours

Having just discovered that my embossing folders do, in fact, work (long story for another time!), I decided to do a bit of white on white with some texture added on for interest and then just the tiniest splash of colour.



All four ingredients? Tick, tick, tick, yes, and tick!

Following a sketch or a recipe like this certainly helps me to come up with something more quickly than when I am left to my own devices! And this one was a lot of fun.

So impressed with my little pile of cards!

What have you done this week that you have impressed yourself with?
