Gee we may have no snow, but boy is it cold !! and in this house it's going to get even colder starting tomorrow, as we are having a new boiler fitted and that means no central heating for 1 night Brrrr - i know stupid idea, but we did try and sort it out in the summer, but the plumbers who came round to give us a quote never followed up with a piece of paper, urgh.
Well todays card is all about Recipes - and as i was a cook for 15 years, i thought it would be easy - oops wrong kind of recipe, well it did feel like that about 3 hours ago, when i couldn't find 3 small pink buttons and the flower punches !!. I've used papers today that i have never used before, and i don't know why not as i'm loving the colour combination and it's the first outing for this wooden stamp too - i have the same image on a transparent set, but that's a bit small.
This is also the 8th card i've made so far for SOS - to send out to our troops for their mums for mothers day, i have 2 more to make before i send them out in January.
