Next is my ragu sauce for the lasagne. I always think the taste improves if you make it the day before and make up the lasagne on the day (also saves time on the day too!!!). I use a recipe by Rachel Allen, very simple but oh so yummy. I am also making garlic bread (butter, parsley and loads of garlic smeared all over a baguette and baked in the oven).

Here's the card I made. I used a scallop square card, some gorgeous Cosmo Cricket Earth Love papers (it was hard to choose which ones cos they are all beautiful!) and a cute Forever Friends stamp that was free with a Docrafts magazine. I coloured the image with Promarkers, cut him out and stuck him onto a small piece of Bazzill Swiss Dots card inked round the edge with Colorbox Creamy Brown Fluid Chalk Inkpad. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and I've also inked the edge. I added some dinky cross stiches in the corners of the stripy paper. Hope you like it and thank you for a gorgeous sketch to follow x
So, here's the card I made following the sketch. I used some pretty Cosmo Cricket Early Bird papers, piece of Glitterations cardstock punched with a Fiskars edge punch, a piece of cream satin ribbon and an oh so cute teddy bear stamped image from Elzybells coloured with Promarkers. Thank you for a lovely sketch x
So, here's my card for the challenge. I've used a scallop edged card, some gorgeous Basic Grey Nook & Pantry paper, a super cute bear image from Elzybells coloured with Promarkers, some paper (red) and fabric (green) flowers, big pearl brads for the flower centres, I cut the leaves with a Woodware punch from Bazzill card and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. Hope you like it and thanks for a great sketch x
Here's my take on the sketch. I used my usual scallop edged square card, some gorgeous Cosmo Cricket Early Bird papers and an ultra cute Forever Friends stamp coloured with Promarkers.
Thank you for a lovely sketch to follow x

I have used a square scallop edged card for my card (I nearly always make square cards!) and chose to use some beautiful purple paper given to me by my lovely friend Karen (think it's LLB but not completely sure?). I don't usually do purple on cards but I love the paper so matched it with some purple paper flowers and card candy and a cute Forever Friends stamp coloured with Promarkers. The ribbon is actually white but looks sort of lilac in the pic. Thank you for 2 great challenges x

So here is my card, I used beautiful papers from the Nook & Pantry range, some cream satin ribbon, a sentiment circle from Craftwork Cards (backed with a scallop circle cut using a Quikutz die), flowers cut from Glitterations cardstock with a Woodware punch and lots of ivory dewdrops from Sarah's Cards. So it's very simple and understated, like the photo above I think. Thanks for a fab challenge x
For the ribbon on the cupcake card I knotted a piece of scrap cream ribbon over the top of the knot of the brown ribbon to add a different look.

A beautiful ATC holder (god I love this, it's soooo clever)...
What you have to do is visit the Quixotic Paperie Challenge blog and link it to your own blog and show a piccie of your favourite card that you made in 2009.
So, without further ado, here's my own fave card...
The card is out of my comfort zone as it is much brighter that most of the cards I make but I loved making it and am pretty proud of it.
