Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all relaxed after the weekend, how many of you have got your tree and decorations up? We will do ours next weekend so that they are up ready for when my Sisters come over the following weekend. We have another inspection this week, Paul got an email on Saturday stating that they are coming on Thursday, oh, they say don't worry if you aren’t home we will let ourselves in and look around !! Which I think is wrong, they shouldn't expect to go poking around our home without us being present. I usually stress about these things wanting to go into full military 'march-out' mode, but it's our home at the end of the day, so it is what it is!! (Will I still be this 'chilled' come Thursday)??? Watch this space!
Janet, where did you get Rabbit, do you have a Traditional Butcher that sells Game?? Proper butchers seem to be few and far between these days. I thought you were hoping to go back to Marigny after Christmas, I'm sorry you have to wait for Spring, I guess it makes sense to make sure that Jim is fully recovered before taking on that long drive. I hope your Rabbit pie was delicious, I don't know whether I would be brave enough to try it?
Now here are the answers for Saturdays quiz...
The only person that got it 100% correct was Our Maria! Well done Maria, the rest of you weren't far off. I have say that I was so flattered to you thought that Sonia's stubbing card was one if mine, I would love to make cards to Our Sonia's standard XXX
Today's card I made on Friday using a border die that I have had for a few years, I have no idea where it's from, part of me thinks its a 'China die', having said that it cuts beautifully. I used it to cut some 'Mint Macaron' glitter card, I cut the border twice and placed them back to back, I put a narrow piece of card along the join as the white ribbon I wanted to use was quite thin, I placed a piece of rhe white ribbon, then a piece of Mint Macaron ribbon, finishing with a piece of the same glitter card that I cut with my Kool Katz Ribbon die, I stamped the sentiment in matching ink and die cut and layered onto a piece of the glitter card. to finish the card I tied a double bow in the white ribbon and topped that with a Mint Macaron bow and finished it with a tiny snowflake die cut in the same glitter card. It will certainly sparkle on the mantlepiece!
I hope that you all have a great day my lovelies,
Love and hugs to all of you,
