A Spoon Full of Sugar- Kitchen/Cooking

nikkimimosateacard
For our challenge this week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar our topic is Kitchen/Cooking. What a great excuse to use more papers from the new Basic Grey Nook and Pantry :-) The sweet image used on my card today is Mimosa Tea. I stock a great selection of these cutie Bildmalarna stamps over in my store.


I used the above great sketch from the Just Magnolia challenge this week. I haven't entered my card as it isn't a Magnolia image ;-) but couldn't resist their pretty sketch!


Our sponsor this week is me :-) This week the lucky winner will receive the below cute Colorful Christmas Paper Kit by My Minds Eye.




**************
Our wonderful and very talented guest joining us this week is Marcea. Thank you for your gorgeous card Marcea! Be sure to pop over and visit Marcera at her blog and admire her sweet Magnolia card.

Hope you get a chance to play along!

Hugs,
