nothing says I love you like a bowl of pasta...

Good morning everyone, I just had a sudden thought when I was typing this (yes I can hear you all now...it had to happen sometime lol), it will soon be time for all the yummy Christmas stamps to appear, I love love love making Christmas cards don't you...all those lush colours and lets face it any excuse to use glitter...well my card for today isn't a Christmas card but the colours reminded me...this gorgeous image is from Teddybo of course and I cant for the life of me remember the name of it, I coloured it with distress inks and even used some of the dreaded red...for those of you who don't know what I mean, red is the least fav of the colours I use, it seems to go everywhere and spreads like wildfire...the astounding paper is from Basicgrey, isn't it just wow, its from the Hello Luscious collection and is called Zesty...I finished with a red ribbon and a gorgeous charm from my stash...the sketch is from a new challenge for me called Eat sleep and Stamp and I'm also entering this for the Stamp Something July digi day challenge too...have a fantastic day everyone
