Crafty Little Fairies DT - In The Kitchen

Good morning everyone - it's Thursday, so it must be time for another Crafty Little Fairies Challenge.

This week it's the turn of the Pink Fairies ... so it's my turn to join in, yippee!  ... and even better, I'm hosting this week's challenge, so I do hope you'll pop over to the challenge blog and play along.

Thanks very much to everyone for your gorgeous entries last week, and don't forget to check on the main challenge blog to see if you are a winner or top 3. 

This week our theme is

In The Kitchen

Very apt for me seeing as I have just started a new baking blog  - it's here if you would like to check it out.  :-)

Anyhoo ... back to the challenge. This week we are very pleased to be sponsored by Whiff of Joy

with a stamp of the winner's choice,

and by Delicious Doodles

Don't forget you need to use a stamped image on your creation if you want to be eligible for this week's prize.

The rest of the fairies have cooked up a storm with this challenge so please do go and visit them - here's what I did.

I must admit that I did order this image and sentiment specially to tie in with both this challenge and my current baking obsession .. and I may have another baking image waiting in the wings for a card in the near future!! They are just sooo cute though, I really couldn't resist!!

Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: Papermania "Lucy Cromwell";
Supplies: flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts; berries, doily and lace from my stash;
