Cookies and Cards

Afternoon everyone,
I have a couple of things to show you today.
First a scrummy plate of melting moments.
I thought they would look great in cello bags,
tied with ribbon,
but they aren't going to last that long!!
And second a card for this week's
Simon Says 'Christmas in August' challenge.
There's still time to take part in this week's challenge so go and
check out the DT work.
Heidi is offering a generous prize of a $25 shopping spree in
the Simon Says Stamp Store,
which is jam packed with goodies.

I had lots of fun with this card.
It's one of my new stamps and I have been dying to try it out.
I couldn't get the colours right with my whispers pens,
so I attempted to watercolour it.
I found a small set of cheap watercolour paints that
the girls must have had when they were younger and
for a first attempt with them, I am quite pleased with the result.
It's also the first time I have used Flower Soft
and it makes a very pretty snow effect.

Stamp - from the Woodware 'A Winter's Day' set.
Design Paper - K & Co Peppermint Twist
Polar white flower soft.
Brad, card candy and sentiment from my stash.
