Simon Says.....follow a recipe!

This week's challenge over at Simon Says Challenge blog is to follow a recipe: You must use 3 embellishments, 2 papers, and 1 image. Pretty easy compared to last weeks challenge so I hope you will all join in!!! If you head to the blog, you will see the rest of the DT's creations for some inspiration. Here is my card:

My Mom was cleaning out her spoon collection & asked if we wanted any for "sentimental" reasons....well, of course my brain instantly went to "CRAFTS" so I snagged a few of the smaller ones, and a few that had dangley charms that I could take off & use elsewhere. This spoon is one of those that I took. It is really pretty - is needlepoint or something like that inside......and I used it as one of my embellishments! The DP is from Basic Grey - Lime Rickey pad. I coloured Tilda with my Koh-i-noor pencils & Gamsol.

The more I look at this card, the more I think it needs something in that top left corner....I almost wish I had moved the sentiment over a bit & put a flower instead of a little heart brad...what do you think???

This is Tilda with a spoon & it will be available at Simon Says Stamp VERY shortly...she is part of the Yummy in my Tummy collection.....and the entire collection is CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!!!

I hope you will all join us in this challenge - it gets you TWO ways to win......sometimes more!!!!
1) random drawing at the challenge blog;
2) chance to win my Fabulous Friday Freebie;
3) hidden candy at 1 or more of the DT's blogs

The odds are pretty good in your favour!!! So please join us!!!!! Thanks for stopping by & your comments - I appreciate them more than you know!!!! Enjoy the rest of your week!!!
