Don't forget the pancakes...

Yesterday was "Chandeleur" in France. "Chandeleur" is celebrated on the 2nd of February every year, the 40th day after Christmas. It is said that on this day if you toss a pancake without dropping it, with a silver coin in your hand, you will have a happy and prosperous year! So last night we had pancakes, yum yum, with jam, cream, chocolate sauce, maple syrup etc...Mmmmm!!! Anyway, Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday) is on the 24th of February in the UK this year, so I made my card on this theme using the sketch on Friday Sketchers this week (really simple but nice sketch to use)...


The inner was done on the pc, I added doodled edges and stamped part of the image...


On the detail shot you can just see the gloss on the bowl and jam jar, done with Anita's glossy accents (I've had this for ages but just started to use it recently)...



I used:
* Stamp "Birthday Recipe" Penny Black
* W/C pancils to colour image
* Wording done on PC
* Paper from K & Co
* Nestabilities Scalloped Square
* Gingham Ribbon Doodlebug Designs
* Buttons, fibres from stash

So now you all know the date, there's no excuse so start tossing those pancakes on the 24th!
