Snow Much Fun

This is my second post today - please scroll down to see my DT creation for Die Cut Dreams***

At Cupcake Crafts we have the theme 'Snow Much Fun' this week. So if you haven't started your Christmas cards yet, it's a great theme to get you started. We are sponsored this week by Digital Delights who have kindly donated a $10 voucher to spend in their online store to the winner.

Here's my creation:

I'm submitting it to these challenges:

I lurve this sketch, my giant snowflake is from the Pink Petticoat Fairy Doodles collection. I printed it larger than life and then cut around it before adding a centre circle and another cute Emma image from the CC Designs winter kit. She's shaded with ProMarkers and Galaxy markers. The snowflake is a Nellie's border - sooo good to have my replacement bug to do all these fabby shapes again. Used tons of Glamour Dust and some sparkle gems. Oh and the little glitter flower / snowflakes I think are Making Memories out of an alphabet sticker set.

My favourite recipe at the moment has to be butternut squash soup, it's one of my faves that I make to help me with the whole fat club thing! So here's the recipe:

Saute some onion and add a chopped, peeled and de-seeded butternut squash. Add a litre of stock (I make mine from veg bouillon powder). Chuck in as much curry powder as you fancy and some seasoning. Cook until soft and then throw in some fresh coriander and blitz it up. Yummy. Guess what I'm having for lunch today?
