Firstly if anybody is in the Sussex area and fancies a punnet of strawberries, please pop in, as we are over run in this house with them growing in the garden, so at the moment, looking for recipes to use them all up ?? Ok this house, well Alan and I are officially muppets, as yesterday i drove my car to the mechanics and this morning i realised my handbag was still on the back seat ??, fortunately it was still there and the fact the mechanic is a friend, so Alan will be driving back up to the garage tonight to get it !! and Alan the darling drove to the station this morning with Whisper's lead on the back seat, so i had to take Whisper to school with one of H's belts as a lead !!
Today's card is very different for me, as although i have quite a few PB flowers i never seem to know what to do with them !!, well fortunately for me a couple of weeks ago on Penny Black Saturday the lovely Kath's card was CASED, but as i was away in Gloucester, i was unable to enter the challenge, so i have CASED IT today, using a stamp that i have used before in a class with the very talented Jane Gill at The Glitter Pot, at the time i loved it, but for £10, i didn't know how often i would use it, so when i popped in on Sunday, this was one of the ex-demo's and it was now £3.50, so i snapped it up. I have teamed it up with Basic Grey 'Wisteria' papers and Ribbon (that i won) and dew drops from The Ribbon Girls'. I've also paper pieced the flower.
