Pixie Cottage Saturday Showcase - Painting Eggs and Baking Cookies!

Wow! There are so many new stamps arriving at The Pixie Cottage that we, the Design Team, have decided to give you another showcase.
You can see all the fabulous cards at The Pixie Cottage blog.

Now I'm a bit naughty this week as not only did I do a card with a new image, I also sneaked in with one from a little while ago! LOL

Card 2 was born from a color challenge I saw and I immediately thought of the image so I had to play along:

Midnight Madness - Sketch
My Time To Craft - Make It Manly
Cupcake Crafts - Food and Drink
CCEE Stampers - Photo inspiration and I thought maybe my chef was baking up these tasty treats!

I hope you've enjoyed these cards, be sure to come back tomorrow for more Pixie Cottage cards and make sure to keep checking out the The Pixie Cottage blog as there'll soon be the 1st creations from our new team members!
