Whats Cooking you ask?

Well I do love food... my good friends know this.. But today I'm not talking about food.. Im talking about the wonderful challenge over at Cooking it up with Katie blog this fortnight.

As soon as the challenge was made to the Design Team I knew what I wanted to create.  I had an image in mind of a mothers hand reaching out to a small child, or a mothers hand with a babies hand in her palm.   I spent over an hour looking for an image like this with no luck, so I posed the question on the Aifactory forums about a search engine in finding designs and within an hour, Mia had created an image for my needs!  I was thrilled and very excited at what she created 'for me', I have no idea if she had this image waiting in the wings, or if she whipped it up when i mentioned it!
Here is the image Mia created, its available at the Factory Vault.

I wanted the image to take centre stage and here is what I created.
I wanted the image to show the innocence and love of a mother and child and I really love the final project.
Often I am negative about what I create but I am really happy with this card.
The Recipe for the Cooking it up with Katie Challenge this fortnight is
Something for Mom or for a Special Lady
Punch It Up!
Add a brad 

I am currently part of a card swap and the theme is New Beginnings, so my recipient this month gets this card..  I do hope she likes it.
