Hi got up this morning and it was pouring down, so decided to give my morning potter a miss. Stopped inside and made a nice large pan of scrummy Chicken and vegetable soup ready for tea.
Had lunch then decided to watch a old craft dvd I've not watched for ages, it's sometimes good to go over things that you sometimes have forgotton. Finished my cards from last night and taken my photo's.

Maddison came for tea, she doesn't like cooked vegetables so decided to make her fish fingers , peas and a few chips. While I was in the kitchen she saw Grandad having some of my soup, she decided to try some after grandad said did she want a taste. She then proceeded to finish half a bowl, then her own tea plus half of my bowl of soup. She knew there were potatoes, carrots , peas in it but didn't tell her there was also, swede, cabbage, leek and barley. She also demolished a bowl of rice pudding. I guess there was nothing wrong with her appetite today. She's back again on Friday and Saturday so better look in the freezer and work out what I need to get in.

Here are the pics of my cards from yesterday, I played with  some of my stamps , mica powder, glitter, die cutting and a different colour combination, plum die ink and green backing paper.

Thanks for dropping by, off to check my e mails and a look round blog land before bed. Crafty love and hugs x ChrisB


  1. Wow - there's two gorgeous cards Chris. I love it that you make cards in so many different styles.

  2. wow - awesome. I am so glad that Maddison tasted the soup - I find that children will eat veggies - all sorts cooked - it depends on who and how they are cooked. Mine when they were little - loved stews and soups and when they were really tiny I used a blender to mash up all the veggies - then when they got older I did that less and less. There is nothing much that children will not eat (unless they are clinically allergic to it) it all depends on how it is cooked or presented - and you have it spot on!

    The cards are absolutely stunning - you are so original

  3. Two more beauties from you Chris but I have to confess the first one has me awestruck. It's really lovely and I would love to see that one in real life.

    Lots of love
