Food, Glorious Food...

The challenge this week for the Daring Cardmakers was to make a card with food on it.

This week it's me (Kathy) setting the dare and I'd like you to make a card with a theme of FOOD!
So let's mull this one over.......You could make an invitation to a barbecue, dinner party, picnic, kids party etcIt could feature a recipe, ingredients, utensils, cookery quotations, poems or rhymes....It could have food depicted on it eg cupcake, CHOCOLATE, bowl of fruit , CHOCOLATE, sausages, CHOCOLATE,.....birthday cake....

I had a really good idea for making a card with Marie Antoinette on it with the quote "Let them eat cake". Searched Google for images, found hundreds but I was unsure about copyrights so gave up on that idea!

So opted for the totally safe option of a wedding cake (sorry boring I know).

PP unknown,vellum,metal words and embellishments mm, brads and eyelet from stash.
Not one of my better ideas as the card came out really bland. I have layered the paper and vellum but I dont think it shows up in the photo too well.

Look what my postie brought me this morning! This is my blog candy from Allison! She has made me the cutest little card as well. I haven't seen this stamp anywhere here in the UK so I am thrilled to bits with this. Thanks Allison.

These are my very first ATCS! I made these with some scraps of my favourite paper. I don't really know anything about ATCs but Di Hickman had some really good information about them on her blog this week, so I thought I would give them a go. They are not vintage( I love the vintage ones but have no vintage style stash), they are just made in my crafting style.
Apparently you give them away or 'trade'. I have 4 to give away, anybody want one?

Enjoy the weekend(looks like lots of rain here!),
