Good Morning Ladies,
Well what a wet & miserable start to the week, we had some torrential rain storms throughout the day, it makes the house feel chilly and damp almost. Weather like that makes me want to eat stews and shepherd's pie, real comfort food, my girls turn their noses up at the mention of a shepherd's or cottage pie, I have no idea why, when we were children 'Mince & Mash' was a favourite tea, I honestly think my mum couldn't be bothered to dirty another dish so it always stayed as mince and mash, its one of the things I crave if I am unwell. I think I will make a shepherd's pie for Paul and I and they can sort themselves out.
We are having food wars at the moment as the girls paid and had a food allergy/sensitivity test done, the sent off hair samples to a lab and their hair was tested against different foods etc, they don't mention 'intolerance ' but they both received a list if foods that they should either cut out of their diet or have rarely. Annoyingly they both had things that we have on a regular basis, Chicken, Salmon, potatoes to name just a few, the bit that confused me was that it was based on the DNA they extracted from their hair, now Sophie and Lucy are identical twins and therefore share the same DNA, the only difference between them is their fingerprints! So how one could be 'Sensitive to Salmon and the other Chicken is beyond my comprehension, the other thing that made me laugh was that Lucy was told to avoid Shellfish but it has only ever been Sophie that's felt bloated or had mild upset stomach after eating prawns etc, Lucy has never had any problems eating them!! But now every time we have chicken they moan, I have said that I had never heard one of them having any reaction to chicken before this nonsense! What do you ladies reckon??
Today's card is a Z Fold card using some patterned papers called 'Whimsical Trees' I created the card base in white card stock then added a mat of the patterned paper, I fussy cut some of the 'whimsical trees' from the patterned paper and adhered them to the bottom corner of the inside of the card. I then die cut a panel of the patterned paper and matted it onto silver and Mint Macaron card (to tie in with papers'. I finished the card with a die cut sentiment that added 4 layers to to make it stand out, I then added some tiny silver pearls to finish the card. I seem to be having a 'green' phase!
I hope that you all have a terrific Tuesday,
Love and hugs to all of you,
