Good Monday Morning Ladies,
Well yesterday started out as a bit of a washout, I haven't seen or heard rain that heavy for a long time, I bet the river will be high today. It brightened up here and we did get some washing out on the line. We didn't venture out though, we were pottering around doing jobs, Paul fitted a blind to the window next to my craft desk there is too much stuff on the windowsill to close curtains plus closing curtains makes it so dark, with the blinds I can angle them at least, so I get some daylight in without being blinded by the sun!
We decided to have something different to a roast today, Sophie requested a Salmon Tart, I made one back in the spring. Its so simple, unroll a pack of Puff Pastry,nlay it on a baking sheet and score around the edge 1cm in, prick centre of pastry and eggwash the border, bake in oven for 15 minutes, take out and press down pastry in the centre, mix 3tbspns with 1 tablspn Grain Mustard and spread over centre of pastry, add a couple of handfuls of baby spinach and then add some cooked flaked salmon, pop it back in the oven for 5 minutes. It was so delicious, the girls loved it too, I served new potatoes and tenderstem Broccoli with it it was a lovely change to a big roast dinner. What did you all have. Janet, I am sure your Rabbit stew was delicious, I Don know whether I would be able to try it, bothy Dad and my Nana loved Rabbit stew, I can't get past them being cute little pets!
Today's card is one I made on Friday while playing with my IndigoBlu box kit. I layered a piece of the free paper collection onto Navy card and placed them onto a 7 x 7 card blank, I then die cut the wreath die in sparkly card and white funky foam (too give some dimension). I die the same with the sentiment dies. I then die cut lots of little stars and dots to arrange across the card, I added glitter pen on some and coloured others. I quite like the simple design.
I hope that you all have a lovely Monday,
Love and hugs to all,
