Good Morning Ladies,
Today's Bright and Cheerful card was made using the new 'Happiness Blooms Suite' from Stampin'Up!
I won this set at Onstage, otherwise I don't think that I would have bought it but as I was playing with it yesterday I really started to like it, its just as much about all the little elements in a stamp set not just the main images. This set has some larger blooms as well as tiny ones that have matching little punches, I have clustered 3 of them together on the right hand side of my card, the little bits of foliage are on another punch so its super easy to build up a background. The main colours in this set are Calypso Coral and Call me Clover.
I stamped the main flower onto my card and then added a few little clusters of dots here and there to build the background. I inked around the card with Calypso Coral to soften the edges and mounted this piece on to a piece of Call me Clover card. I then stamped a random pattern over a piece of whisper white card to create a background and layered that upon my Calypso Coral base card.
Dimensions are 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches.
AGA cooking update....I managed a perfect lasagne for tea last night, it cooked it perfectly, I may try one of the recipes in the Original Mary Berry AGA cookbook that came with the AGA when it was installed, its quite dated but the recipes look just lovely.
If any of you has a recipe for Bread Pudding I would be very grateful. I asked my Mum but she couldn't remember, which is sad as I remember it being delicious as a child.
I am going to get all of my Christmas cards sorted today, ready to be posted on Wednesday, its a job that I keep moving forward but want to just get it out of the way.
I hope that you all have a fantastic day today,
Love and hugs to all,
