I made this card for Hot Spot Challenge #1! The challenge is "natural elements" - this kinda speaks for itself, so......here's my card incorporating natural elements:
For the centre feature of the card, I spray painted small pieces of interesting curly bark from a tree in our garden, and glued a butterfly on top (not only does the butterfly itself symbolize nature, but it's also made from feathers which is another element from nature):
And a note for Making It With Meslyn Challenge Blog ladies - this card uses my following favourite things: Butterflies and natural elements! :)
And then, one of the best inventions of the century....the 5 minute microwave single serving chocolate cake!
Here's the recipe:
4 tbs flour
4 tbs sugar
2 tbs cocoa powder
3 tbs milk
3 tbs oil
* Mix dry ingredients in large coffee mug (or any other microwavable dish really)
* Add wet ingredients and mix well! (fork works great)
* Microwave for 3 mins on high.
* Wait for it too cool down (very important), and EAT!
