Chocolate chip and Orange....

Its the 1st Of April and I am no fool!
But.... I must be Mad making a Panettone when I am on a life change diet... By life change I mean I am NOT putting the weight I have lost so far back on and that is why I must be mad making a panettone as its so delish! chocolate chip this is pre the sugar dusting.

Thought I would enter my Panettone in a comp too!
All Crafts Challenge - NO CARDS - Anything but a Card

Ok so today we have a new challenge starting at Top Tip Tuesday and our lovely host is Annette and her Challenge theme is Cute
we have a fabulous Sponsor and Prize from Sami Stamps

and I have been bursting to share that we have an awesome 
Special guest KAT she has made a fabulous tutorial
for us and if you have not been to her blog then you are MOST definitely missing out!

we also have our awesome DT and our Guest Top Tipper Karen  too! so don't miss out get over there and join in the fun!

For my card I have used this oh so cute sami stamps digital image called Sunny Spot I am loving the opportunity to use burnt orange.  

I have coloured the image with spectrum Noir pens but the Orange layer is done with white card on a ribbler and then distressed with spiced marmalade and walnut stain distress inks, I also had a play and flicked water that I had mixed with liquid pearls to make a shimmer mist and splattered blotches, the cord is recycled from a label, (see that pin I can't wait to find the right time to use that too!)
Pisssssssssssssssssssst! look size 10! woo hoooo Its a lot of years since I wore a size ten! that is a vest top but I am on the way to fitting 10 Jeans too! a few more kilos should do it! (cough) but first the panettone!
