Good Sunday Morning Lovely Friends,
How are you all feeling today? Are you all prepared and able to relax, or have you still got last minute bits to shop for?? I think that we are pretty much done, maybe a couple of puddings to pick up, oh and some of Aldi Red Onion Chutney, which i can tell you is one of the nicest Chutneys I have ecer tasted and i have tried a lot over the tears, from all price ranges too, I guess thats why it has been out of stock for a while, their ploughmans chutney is good too, I wonder if people have made Hampers with it in. Chutney is something that most of us will eat, we used to get Picalilli but it got wasted as it was only me and Sophie that eats it.
Boxing day is an all day Buffet in our house, could meats, cheese board, pork pie, salads etc, it makes for a more relaxed day for every one. My mum always does another roast dinner on Boxing day, we did a few times but its just too much after the big roast on Christmas day. My one guilty pleasure is using leftover sprouts and mash adding some sauteed red onions and making Bubble & Squeak and having it with a fried egg and a big slice of the Roast Ham, ooh my mouth is watering just thinking about it!!
What do you all lpok forward to eating most??
Now lets look at this weeks cards, not so many but thats undetstandable......
Maria has used a beautiful Decorative Paper for the background of this amazing Birthday card, the pretty frame that surrounds the sentiment was made using Sue Wilson Delicate Garden Frame die (I think), it's a beautifully intricate floral design frame die set, that works perfectly with Maria's design.
Maria used Categories: shades of Pink/patterned paper/Happy birthday
An absolutely amazing card Maria, thank you so much for taking part on such a busy week. XXX
Lynda has created her own beautiful pink background for her Challenge card this week, using a Crafters Companion 3D Embossing folder, it has such deep emboss that the flowers look like they have been decoupaged onto the card. Lynda has added a wash of Pink ink and some pretty pearls to finish this lovely card.
Lynda using categories: Shades of Pink/Pearls/Embossing
Thank you so much for taking part my lovely. XXX
Janet has made three beautiful Birthday cards for this weeks challenge. All completely different styles, Janet i think you are so gifted in so many different techniques and methods, your cards are always beautifully designed and rarely repeated. Take these three cards for ecample, you would think that they were made by different people.
Your first card features such a cute little girl with eyes that make your heart melt, you have framed the image beautifully with a Sue Wilson die and added some pretty flowers, a gorgeous card !
Janet's second card is a more sophisticated look, using Sue Wilson's Eternal Rings Background, which we all adored! A gorgeous shade of green too, Janet has embellished this card with some delicate little blossoms.
Janet's third card is Alice in Wonderland themed, do you have a CD rom Janet or a papercraft kit, as you have made some stunning Alice in Wonderland projects this year. This card is as stunning, there is so much detail from the Cheshire Cat to Alice herself. One little girl is going to be so excited to open this card.
The categories Janet has used are..
My first card uses Pink/Ebos/Birthday
My second card uses Green/Pearls/Birthday
My last card uses Green/Patterned paper/birthday
Thank you so much Janet for taking part in this weeks challenge, especially with it being such a hectic week. XXX
