Food, Glorious Food !!!

Good Morning, welcome to Sunday Morning, and to my little corner of blogland. Today sees the start of a brand new challenge at THE CRAFTY PAD. I have to say, I LOVE the theme chosen this week by the very talented Ms. Leesa (aka The Navy Wife.)


Yay! so many options for you here, and if you're short on inspiration, then head over to THE CRAFTY PAD challenge blog for some fab DT inspiration.

For my card, I have used a real mix of CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS products, details of which can be found as you read through this post.

I made a sliding easel card, and here it is:

Here the slider element is open to reveal the sentiment.
The sliding easel template comes with full & easy to follow instructions, and the rectangular scalloped version, along with several others can be found in the shop HERE.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and the Strawberry Sundae Delight papers can be found in the shop HERE. The image can be found HERE. I added a strawberry to the top, and the sentiment from the Berry set HERE.
It is hard to see, but I have added several embellishments, including punched flowers with candi dot centres, white flower buttons tied with baker's twine, ribbon, and a punched cupcake border which I coloured red with ink.
Side-View with the slider open.

With the slider CLOSED, the card folds flat so will fit into an envelope for posting.

We have a fab sponsor in the form of CREATIVE CRAFT WORLD, with a £5.00 voucher to spend in their shop.

We would LOVE for you to join us this week, and I for one can't WAIT to visit your blogs and see your delicious creations!!
