Cooking it up with Katie

This is the birthday card I made for Julia of WOYWW fame! Today is her birthday, Happy Birthday Julia, and today is the day for the challenge from Cooking it up with Katie, for which this is also my DT card!
Katie has come up with a fab recipe this week, the challenge is...
1. Choose a sketch from another challenge blog
2. Add some yellow
3. Do some stitching (real or faux)
This weeks challenge is sponsored by Meljen's Designs and the DT were lucky enough to be able to use one of Melissa's gorgeous images.
I used the sketch from CCEE Stampers, the twist from that blog is to include a beverage... well the bees are sipping nectar!
I'm not brilliant at stitching paper and neither is my machine, as it keeps stitching even when I've taken my foot off the pedal, so it's faux stitching for me!
There is a whole new bunch of new designers on the team from this week, so do check out the blog and see their fabulous work. We'd love you to come along and join in the fun.


  1. Oh my Chrissie this is stunning that yellow really stands out like a ray of sunshine that image is just delightful I love it.

  3. Hi Chrissie! you blog is awesome and your cards are absolutely beautiful. I would also like to thankyou so much for kindly offering to donate a card/s for St'Wilfred's Hospice after Keryns appeal today. I am totally humbled by everyone's generosity and will always be prepared to return that kindness. I have now put up a post on my blog with a link to yours to explain the story behind the cause. Chrissy you are an angel, thankyou. Big hugs Clare xxx
