The C4E recipe challenge is definitely becoming addictive! It never fails to take me outside my comfort zone. This week the three ingredients were to (1) follow the Sketch, (2) include a snowman and (3) use cotton wool. My first thought on seeing the words "cotton wool" were OMG!! I then looked at what the Design Team had come up with and saw a couple of them had used pre-manufactured cotton wool bally things. I knew I had some of those lurking in my brownie/rainbow stash and after 1/2 an hour of searching I found them. They were HUGE. Definitely couldn't use them on a 5 x 5 square card. Back to the drawing board. I resisted the idea of actually going to the bathroom and looking for cotton wool because it conjoured up memories of rainbows and brownies sticking cotton wool balls on huge sheets of sugar paper etc. Looked through all my stamps and cricut cartridges for a snowman and settled on a Hello Kitty snowman. But then, for same insane reason I reached for my Speaking of Winter cartridge which is currently for sale on UKS. I never use it but today it took me out of my box and got me looking at my snowman in a different light. Yes! I went to the bathroom and grabbed some cotton wool. Yes I used a snowman and Yes Yes Yes I created the greeting in foil using my new gadget!!! Am I pleased with the result? I think so.
