And the recipe we are cooking today

This week at Cooking it up with Katie our recipe is

I really enjoyed playing with this theme and knew I wanted to do a Xmas card as soon as I saw the recipe.

  I bought this image from Digital Delights by LouLou (our lovely sponsor, who gave us other images.. but I really had to use this guy, as I fell in love with him as soon as I saw him... Go and buy him you know you want too.   Its going to be on many of my christmas cards this year... be warned!

I really love this card.. from start to finish I enjoyed making it and instead of adding more and more to it, i decided to leave it as is, once i put the image and the sentiment on.. I purposely did the patterned papers off centre.. just to have a deeper red border on one side.

Looking forward to seeing your creations, and being inspired!  See you over at the Cooking it up Blog
