Crafty Angels - 123, Recipe.

Hi! I hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday Monday. It's a gorgeous day here.. a little chilly but sunny enough to make you want to be out in it. I am feeling so much better today, thanks to everyone for the sympathy. My throat is not so sore and the congestion is not as bad.. don't you just HATE summer colds??!!!

It was my turn to set the challenge on Crafty Angels this week and I chose a recipe. I would like you to use 1 Ribbon, 2 papers and 3 Ribbons on your creation. You can add cardstock, pins, sentiment, etc.. but you must use 1, 2, 3 recipe too. 

I made  a gift set and used the recipe on my card. The image is a Spesh stamp I won from Kimmi recently when she had offered it as blog candy. Thanks Kimmi :D 

My papers are Magnolia 'turquoise quilt' and 'turquoise rose'.  I just LOVE Magnolia papers. The quality and texture is amazing and they are perfect for distressing. 

I found the tutorial for the Sour Cream container HERE. Soooo simple to make and it's a great little gift idea. There are some chocolates inside. The butterfly on the front is from PM and I've had it for the longest time. Isn't amazing how much stash we accumulate and then forget about. Finding it is like getting new stash all over again, lol.

The sentiment on the card is a from a sheet of die cut Birthday sentiments. They come in both blank and white card on one sheet and are a great way to add a sentiment quickly. I just inked the edges, added some 3D pop dots and stuck it to the card.

Don't forget that each week there is a Top 3 picked and at the end of each month all the Top 3's are entered into the draw for a prize. 

This month's prize is this super sweet set of stamps "Honey & Hugs" from Papermania
