Baby It's COLD Outside




HAPPY NEW YEAR

This month the ABC Toys & Crafts Design Team challenged each other using this theme

" BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE "


(click on blinkie for complete details on how you can join us)

A couple days after Christmas one of my neighbors came by bearing gifts that she had purchased on her trip to the outlet malls. What a wonderful treat to have been the recipient of her wonderful finds!! I thought this cute Penny Johnson (Shopping Chic) stamp would be the perfect image to use on my thank you card. Pretty sure that is what Mary looked like while out on her shopping expedition!!


Since our theme is "Baby It's Cold Outside" I decided to share some of my very SECRET, Very FAMOUS Sicilian Soup Mix. I used the Hero Arts (Ledger) stamp and two stamps from the Crafty Secrets (Sweet Stuff) stamp set to create a custom recipe card.


CHALLENGES I USED:
ABC Toys & Crafts: Baby It's Cold Outside
MelJens Thursday Challenge: Cold & Snowy
Fussy & Fancy: Card and a 3-D Gift
Little Red Wagon: Leftovers (I use leftovers for just about every project because it kills me to make that first cut into a brand new sheet of paper!!)
Mark's Finest Papers: Use something New (my rhinestone snowflakes are new)
Paper Sundaes: Something New (rhinestone snowflake)

Love your idea! Being married to a man of Sicilian decent...I searched your blog over for the SECRET soup recipe and couldn't find it. I'll share mine with you if you'd share yours! LOL! Thanks for a nice chuckle.

Ummmm . . . I WANT this!!! I could really use some of your extra special hot soup right now with this ridiculous cold I have going on. This project is amazing, girlie - no doubt, your neighbor loved it. My guess is that she'll be shopping for you on a more regular basis if this is what she gets in return. Lucky!!
